research report



CATHSSETA appointed FR Research Services to conduct skills analysis research on the Sport, Recreation and Fitness Industry, which is a major sub-sector and levy contributor to the SETA. The purpose of the research is to determine the skills needs within the designated industry and assess to what extent the CATHSSETA interventions are responsive to the needs of organisations in this industry. The skills intelligence gathered from the research is intended to feed into the CATHSSETA Sector Skills Plan (SSP) for the purposes of demand-led skills planning. The objectives of this report are the following: Provide a consolidated summary of key findings and recommendations derived from a series of research studies conducted for this project to determine the skills needs in the industry. Identify which occupations are in high demand in the external labour market, if any, and skills gaps in the internal labour market of organisations in the industry. Recommend skills development interventions to the CATHSSETA at a strategic level based on the skills needs of constituent member organisations. Offer insights for sector skills planning.
