NEMISA’s mission is to empower all South African citizens with the digital skills they need to to take part in the current economy as well as forward into the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). The K4i initiative is a collaboration between multiple stakeholders, including South African universities. K4i works within the collaboration network of NEMISA and the provincial CoLabs (and their universities). NEMISA and K4i are addressing the digital skills shortage through teaching and learning, research, innovation, monitoring and evaluation, and aggregation.
This Digital Skills Survey tool forms a key part of NEMISA’s innovation and research initiatives. In time we hope it builds a large enough database that it can be used to inform further skills development initiatives as well as policy interventions needed to empower those who are currently excluded from the knowledge economy. At an individual level, we hope that it can inform citizens of their current skills and provide them with a roadmap for learning new digital skills that could help them find employment and flourish in a world that is becoming increasingly digital.
