Abstract

The imprint of apartheid has profoundly shaped pathways to learning and work in South Africa. This volume seeks to critically engage with South Africa's current skills development strategy and to analyse the prospects for a successful upskilling of the population. As the high skills, it is an important and original contribution to the international literature, as well as a major addition to the discourse on South African education, training and development.
