The NTA requires authoritative, reliable and comparable labour market amd industry sector intelligence to inform the development of VET provision in Namibia.

In this regard, the NTA continues to utilise industry experts as source of market intelligence through the ISCs, which oversee the development of qualifications and unit standards; identify priority areas/occupations for skills development; and analyse quality and quantity of training provision in different sectors, based on labour market intelligence.

The 2016-2020 Skills Development Plan for the VET Sector (SDP1) is a product of extensive research and stakeholder consultations. SDP1 represents a shared commitment to improve the country’s human capital prospects. It also outlines key training priorities and interventions to be funded through the VET Levy Key Priority Grant Funding Window.

The outcomes of a Scarce Skills Validation Survey, conducted in November/December 2018 and in which over 4,000 employers participated, is informing the development of the Skills Development Plan 2, to cover the period of 2021 to 2025.

Hence, the decision to initiate a TVET Economic Impact Assessment (Tracer Study) for trainees, who graduated between 2015 and 2017, at Levels 1-5, countrywide.
