The Siyaphambili website is a product of SALDRU’s Siyaphambili Research Group and was funded by the Kresge Foundation. SALDRU and the University of Cape Town participate in Siyaphumelela (“we succeed”) which supports South African universities’ ability to improve student learning and academic success.
Inspired by the Lumina Foundation’s Stronger Nation interactive website, which tracks American qualifications beyond high school, this website provides a platform to track qualification attainment in South Africa. The graphs on this website are based on analysis of publicly available StatsSA data. The tables containing the values shown in the graphs are downloadable in Excel format.
A strong motivator behind the website is the need to share information and create awareness about our country’s skills needs. Goal 2030 provides a reference against which to measure year-on-year progress in qualification attainment. The project team recognises that South African post-school qualifications information is available, but not in an interactive format. The website exists to create such a platform to support policymakers and the general public to identify how South Africa can achieve its ambitions.
