The skill level of the workforce is progressively becoming a very important aspect of the labour market.
According to the International Labour Organisation (2013:89), information on levels of educational
attainment is currently the best available indicator of labour force skill levels. Hence, educational attainment
will form the basis for assessing the skill level of the workforce in the Eastern Cape.
This report seeks to assess the skills available in the Eastern Cape labour market, and to determine the role that education plays in economic development. The report focuses on the characteristics of the long-term unemployed and their detrimental effects on the economy.
