The overarching purpose of the Labour Market Intelligence Partnership Programme Theme 4 projects is to explore how diverse types of education and training institutions in the emerging post-school terrain are responding to increasingly changing and complex labour markets. This report is intended to identify some of the key concepts central to the conceptualisation and design of the empirical study using the proposed NIS framework to study skills development in the South African post-school sector. Most importantly, it presents the Sectoral Innovation System (SIS) approach for the delineation of the study unit of analysis to explore knowledge and technological bases and linkages in the different sectors with the purpose of revealing possible avenues for policy intervention. It offers an introduction to, as well as a clarification of, key concepts emanating from the literature to enhance our understanding of the main actors, institutions and knowledge linkages, functions and key characteristics of the SIS framework. Finally, the report briefly considers how these approaches could be used to generate analytical tools for conducting empirical research in the post-school sector.
