Abstract

As a statutory body, the MAPPP-SETA is responsible for the development of Sector Skills Plans. The current report gives a qualitative picture of the current scarce and critical skills in the Publishing and Print Media sub-sectors. Through a series of semi-structured focus group meetings and about 100 interviews in Gauteng, Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape, representatives of the sub-sectors were asked to provide their views on these issues and perceived training needs.
