Abstract

College responsiveness to industry is a two-way street. It is not enough to be critical of the failings of colleges in this respect. Instead, it is also important to analyse the role of industry in the relationship. As well as the graduate survey reported in Chapter 3, therefore, it was important to survey employers. In this chapter, we report on the employer survey and relate it to broader debates about South African industry's attitudes towards skills development.
