About the Impact Assessment: NSDS III

The NSDS III period is approaching its five year period and the BANKSETA  conducted an Impact Assessment Study for the. last five years (2011-2016). Beneficiaries participated in various skills development interventions and the measured impact provided an indication of the relevance of these interventions.

Beneficiaries who participated in any of these interventions between 2011 and 2016  were encouraged to participate in this survey and to use the opportunity to provide BANKSETA with feedback that will be used to improve future programmes.

To collect this feedback, the BANKSETA has appointed S24 Business Group (Pty) Ltd to assist the Sector Skills Planning and Research Department in conducting the impact assessment.

In response to the DHET’s assertion that it is important to evaluate the impact of the initiatives of the NSDS III and ensure that the programmes met the required outcomes and created the relevant impact, BANKSETA duly embarked on an impact assessment process as the NSDS III comes to its conclusion.  This SETA specific evaluation will contribute to the overall assessment of the total impact of NSDS III on human resource development, skills development and transformation between 2011 and 2016.
