One thing that is certain in life is that everything is changing all the time. All research indicates that there will be a major shift in the nature of jobs during the coming years. Jobs as you may know it are evolving at a dazzling pace.
People have to be trained to fill jobs that have never existed and/or people have to be up skilled in their current positions to be able to cope with the developing challenges.
Higher Education Institutions are under immense pressure to stay in tune with industry needs. All training eventually starts in Higher Education institutions. These institutions have to understand the needs in the market place and produce graduates who can function in this demand driven market place.
