This research guide is based on an LMIP project: A study of labour market interactive capabilities, structures and mechanisms in diverse post-school education and training institutional settings. The study investigated ways in which the alignment between public and private education and training providers, and firms and labour markets, can be improved. The researchers designed a framework and a set of instruments for collecting and analysing data on organisational capabilities and interaction in skills development networks. It used these to analyse practices within three sectoral systems: sugarcane growing and milling in KwaZulu-Natal, automotive components manufacturing in the Eastern Cape, and astronomy, specifically the Square Kilometre Array big-science project.
