Combating Unemployment through Human Capital Interventions in the EC Province post Covid-19

Unemployment

There are two definitions of unemployment used to describe form of unemployment: the official definition and the expanded definition of unemployment.

Unemployed persons according to the Official definition are those (aged 15–64 years) who:

  1. a) Were not employed in the reference week; and
  2. b) Actively looked for work or tried to start a business in the four weeks preceding the survey interview; and
  3. c) Were available for work, i.e. would have been able to start work or a business in the reference week; or
  4. d) Had not actively looked for work in the past four weeks, but had a job or business to start at a definite date in the future and were available.

Unemployed persons according to the Expanded definition are those (aged 15–64 years) who:

  1. a) Were not employed in the reference week; and
  2. b) Were available to work but did not look for work either because they are discouraged from looking for work (see definition of discouraged work-seeker) or did not look for work for other reasons other than discouragement.

Human Capital interventions

EC issues:
Highly qualified but Low Skilled, no experience.
Employment Hotspots created by our divided history (Transkei (Mthatha) , Ciskie (Bhisho) , Union of South Africa(QTN-PE-GHT)
There are jobs in EC, but need workplace experience for entry
Salaries lower than national average, need to be competitive for retention in the region
Must localise national initiatives, YES, SAYouth.mobi,

There are multiple voices for entrepreneurship opportunities, good but confusing.

For Matric leavers:
Learnership opportunities, offer practical and theoretical skills and an NQF5 qualification at completion, with stipend.
Low level of entry, massive audience, capture at school exit
Can claim back stipend from SDL if contributing.
Can assist in boosting BEE score card under training and skills
Captures the workforce
More applicable for blue colour industries like manufacturing, fmcg, automotive

For Graduates:
4 public universities (average 4000 graduates per, university per year) oversupply
14 public TVETS (1800
Meaningful internships and graduate programs,
Length should be 24 months across public and private.
Work readiness programs.
Allows greater talent pool to choose from.
More applicable for white colour industry jobs

Salary benchmarking (by location) – retain talent
