High Gear has conducted rapid research with automotive assemblers and component manufacturers, to identify the competencies that they demand most from TVET graduates. The identified competencies are informing High Gear’s strategies to align TVET course delivery with industry needs.
High Gear, in collaboration with the Durban Automotive Cluster (DAC) and the East Cape Automotive Industry Forum (ECAIF), rapidly interviewed 36 firms to identify the top competencies they seek from TVET graduates for entry-level jobs.
The High Gear initiative is sponsored by the UK government Skills for Prosperity Programme Manager, United States Agency for International Development (USAID Southern Africa), and the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation and managed by the International Youth Foundation.
