Occupationally directed skills development for green public procurement

Sector Skills Plan

Skills planning in the Public Services sector provides the strategic direction needed to guide the development of the human capital the state needs to deliver on its service delivery priorities. The National Development Plan (NDP) provides an evidence-based analysis of the priority focus areas in this regard. This Sector Skills Plan maps out the specific agreed priorities, as well as the areas of uncertainty and the partnerships and processes through which PSETA will further define and take forward this agenda.
