Integrated water sector skills intervention map based on a sector skills gap analysis
Expanded Title:This Water Research Commission (WRC) Project, INTEGRATED WATER SECTOR SKILLS INTERVENTION MAP BASED ON A SECTOR SKILLS GAP ANALYSIS (Number K5/2113), was commissioned by the WRC on behalf of the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) in response to repeated declarations that the water sector in South Africa was lacking (and losing) skills necessary to plan for and maintain the supply of water services to the public. The project was commissioned in the face of a lack of readily accessible objective data to confirm or refute the declarations. This research project provided a technologically up-to-date method of arriving at the evidence required to take management decisions on the situation described. It considers both the institutional capacity and individual skills aspects, where capacity is the number of staff required per job title in a water sector institution (WSI) and the skills are the competence needed by individuals in the jobs. With regard to the institutional capacity aspect, the project provides a review of WSIs’ legal mandates linked to the size of responsibility per mandate. This enables a calculation of capacity requirements with regards to staff numbers per job title. The research project developed and initiated an online staff skills audit survey system that provides a live and repeatable process for measuring individual skills which is rolled up to an institutional competence level.
