SMME NEWS - MAY 2016 ISSUE

16 May

16 May 2016 SMME NEWS 5 EDUCATION By Tinky Ogle In a perfect world, selecting a career would be as simple as knowing and pursuing, but reality proves it a daunting process. It often requires sufficient research and self-assessment that, even after satisfactory effort, leaves you with more questions like ‘Would it make me good money?’, ‘Are there opportunities for me to study it, and if, so can I afford to?’ You are not alone. A wise alternative to select a career is to identify current skills shortages in South Africa that are most applicable to your capabilities an interests, thereafter find doors to get you into those fields. As compelling as it may come across, many of us are actually unaware of the gaps in the career market which may cost us consequent hurdles in our pursuits- if not treaded upon carefully. Scarce skills/Skills shortages/Skills gaps- terms that are wrangled a lot in our industry- is defined as a job or qualification for which there are too few available people in SA to do the job. OPPORTUNITIES Studying for a scarce skill does not only fulfill one’s contribution socioeconomically but it mostly benefits you, because the more the skill is in demand, too is the likelihood of its compensation. You will find a job easier, get paid better and progress to the top simpler because employers require these skills. An added bonus is some qualifications are universally scarce, which means international opportunities will be available should one consider working abroad. One of the findings of the latest *Adorp Employment Index is that there are currently as many as 829 800 unfilled positions for high-skilled workers across a wide range of occupations in SA. This finding, together with our high unemployment rate, illustrates the need for citizens to strategically pursue job and career opportunities that will benefit our economy in the long-haul. The correlation between South Africa’s skills scarcity and NYDA Beneficiary A National Youth Development Agency Success Story NONTOBEKO DUMA Scarce skills in South Africa career path selections presents a notable implication to tackling poverty alleviation, unemployment and economic growth, hand in hand with creating awareness surrounding skills shortages – but not withstanding- the provision of support systems to aid those whom are interested in these jobs the opportunity to access them. So which jobs are scarce? Scarce skills are concentrated in the Engineering, Health, Information Technology and Finance industry sectors. According to the Department of Higher Education and Training’s organizing framework for occupations (OFO), the list of occupations in high demand for 2015, in each respective industry sector, is as follows: - Skilled Agricultural, Forestry, Fishery, Craft Related Trades: Builders, Machinery, Electrical, Merchandising, Mechanical - Plant and Machine Operators and Assemblers: Plastics, Packaging and textiles manufacturing, Operators and Assemblers; and Drivers - Managers: Government, Finance, Quality Systems, Research and Development, Manufacturing, Logistics, Construction, Health and Safety, and District Education - Professionals: Scientists, Technologists, Analysts, Engineers, Surveyors, Nurses and Medical Officers, Accounts and Investments, ICT specialists and Lawyers - Technicians and Associate Professionals: Technicians, Mari-time, Mining, Manufacturing and GIS - Clerical Support Workers: Tourism, Taxation and Accounts, Security and Statistics - Service and Sales Workers: Hazardous Material Removals and Community Care How can you help as a business leader? Finding the best qualified individuals to employ in your business is standard and highly recommendable procedure, yet with that I encourage entrepreneurs to invest in the potential and future of your business by assisting young people through training courses/programmes that can increase their capabilities and growth in the company. Those on the quest of starting new businesses, as well as existing, are advised to use these skills shortages to develop their prospects for future business growth and not get left behind in the progression of these industries. The Department of Labour supports many skills development programmes in the area of scarce skills, for e.g. learnerships, apprenticeships and bursaries. Stay alert and seek opportunities as often as possible. You can make an appointment with one of the Department’s careers counsellors to assist you to choose a scarce skill that will suit you.
