Abstract

In order to understand human resource skills development in the tourism sector it is pertinent to understand the perspective of the tertiary institutions. The views of these institutions were sourced through roundtables, surveys and key informant interviews. The categories of the HEI???s sampled for this survey included: traditional state funded universities and universities of technology, private colleges, private training providers and TVET (Technical and vocational education and training) colleges. The survey mainly targeted those institutions which offered tourism sector courses. In-house training providers were not included in this survey as they are already covered in the firm level survey.
