Nomakholwa Makaluza 

The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) has published its first statistical overview of the size and shape of post-school education and training in South Africa. The publication: Statistics on Post-School Education and Training Statistics in South Africa, 2011, provides basic information about student enrolment, staffing levels, student passes and student graduates in post-school education and training institutions as at 2011.

Researchers can find data pertaining to public higher education institutions, public and private Further Education and Training (FET) colleges, public and private Adult Education and Training (AET) Centres, Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs), artisans and the National Skills Fund (NSF), as at 2011. The publication draws its data from a number of different information systems and databases managed by the department as well as from management reports provided by departmental entities.

Statistics on Post-School Education and Training in South Africa will be published annually.  Researchers and other stakeholders are encouraged to use the publication as a basis for further inquiry and analysis.

The publication is to be available on the DHET website:
