The Labour Market Intelligence Partnership brings the research and policy communities together. We do this by organising policy roundtables on specific topics and by developing concise evidence-based briefing notes.
Each LMIP Briefing is an evidence-based contribution to informing the development of a skills planning mechanism for South Africa. Showcasing our cutting edge research, briefings aim to highlight key trends and potential implications.
Our target audiences? Government policymakers and institutional planners charged with planning for the next generations of skilled workers in South Africa.
