Abstract

Theme 5 of the LMIP seeks to understand pathways through education and training and to the labour market. The key question addressed by this work is: What are the dynamics of access, progression, graduation and labour market destinations underpinning learner, student and worker mobility along various education, training and labour market trajectories, and how can this knowledge inform skills planning in South Africa? The graduate tracer study described in this report falls under Theme 5 of the LMIP and is motivated by the need for more information on the transitions from university to the labour market.
