The Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Education and Training Authority (merSETA) was established through the Skills Development Act, (Act 97 of 1998). The merSETA facilitates skills development in the following five sub-sectors (or chambers); Metal, Plastics, Auto (including only the seven local assemblers of new vehicles), Motor (including automotive components manufacturers and the motor retail and service subsector), and New Tyre. This Regional Sector Skills Plan (RSSP) is aimed at unpacking the regional specificity of the merSETA subsectors. The objectives of this RSSP are to identify and map key features, trends, forecasts and legislative initiatives at the regional level regarding skills development. This RSSP provides valuable insight into regional and local developments in the sector and links to skills development planning. To this end, the RSSP presents a regional socio-economic analysis, profiles regional companies, explores the labour supply and demand imperatives and offers regional scarce and priority skills analysis.
