This research guide (Research Instrument 2) provides a set of templates for conducting a sectoral overview or background paper that should be used to inform the fieldwork investigating interactive capabilities of post-school education and training organisations (PSET). The sectoral background paper should describe the economic and employment profile of the sector, national and local policy impacting on sector activities, key role-players or actors involved in skills development, and the knowledge and skills base. Conducting a sectoral overview is an initial step, before going out to do the fieldwork. It should be used to develop an outline or map of key actors involved in skills development to inform the selection of actors to be interviewed. Besides being a resource for the fieldwork, the sectoral overview would provide useful contextual information to inform the analysis.
