Recognising Ecommerce Skills

EFSA has held a meeting with our sponsoring ministry, the Department of Communications and Digital Technology (DCDT), to discuss ecommerce skills with two aims – first, Home Affairs provides temporary visas for skilled experts to train staff in specialised skills. Ecommerce has not previously been recognised as a sector requiring skills. Second, as ecommerce grows, some skills should be accredited in order to ensure a high level of training (such as logistics, customer relations, etc). The EFSA delegation led by Board member, Tinashe Guramatunhu, discussed what SETA the ministry would prefer EFSA to join and which other ministries should be involved (the Department of Higher Education and Training and the Department of Transport). The next meeting will be with the 3 ministries in November.  Comments are welcomed please write to me ([email protected]).
