Description

1.Analysis of trends in throughput rate, dropout rate, repetition rate, completion rate, graduate rate and other relevant indicators, at qualification and programme levels, at each of the different HEIs, since 1994. 2.Projections on enrolment, throughput, repetition, dropout and completion rate (graduates) using statistical techniques and different scenarios, to 2030 (disaggregated by institution, and key qualifications and programmes). 3.Barriers and enablers for access and completion at HEIs, and recommendations on how barriers could be overcome. 4.Development of an education planning software package that could be used at institutional and departmental levels to support management and planning. Such a model should have reporting capabilities and be compatible with HEMIS and VALPAC. 5.An evaluation of the feasibility of key NDP targets, based on different sets of assumptions.


Objectives

To evaluate the restructuring of the Higher Education and Training System; determine whether it will be able to meet its targets to increase the participation rates in TVET Colleges and Universities; and to review and develop models and methods to simulate enrolment projections in the short, medium and long-term.


Rationale

The key purpose of this project is to assess the feasibility of achieving the targets set by the National Development Plan in relation to the higher education sector in South Africa, given different scenarios: to increase student enrolment in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to 1.62 million by 2030
