In South Africa the WorldSkills South Africa (WSSA) initiative is championed by the Department of Higher Education and Training. Even though South Africa has participated in World Skills International (WSI) events since 1990, WSSA was formally established in April 2013 by the Deputy Minister of the Department of Higher Education and Training.
Within the South African context participation in the World Skills competition holds huge potential to influence the development and employability of the South African Youth.
In addition to this it acts as an effective vehicle to increasing awareness of apprenticeships and artisanal skills, raising the standard of vocational education and training and artisanal skills. This initiative also supports the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET): ‘Decade of the Artisan’.
It comes at a time where the issue of artisan development is of top priority for government as there is a shortage of skilled people in our country. Hence, the World Skills Competition aims to encourage more young people (high school learners, tertiary students and unemployed youth) to see artisanship as a career of choice to ease the skills shortage in South Africa.
