WHO WE ARE
Creating Opportunity through Skills Development
Mind-the-Gap started with a vision to empower, upskill and create opportunity through South Africa’s dynamic structure of Skills Development.
Established in 2004, Mind-the-Gap recognised the needs and challenges that industries and the South African workforce face to formalise their people development processes as part of the ever-changing education, vocational training and labour landscape within the arena of national skills legislation (namely the Skills Development Act, Skills Development Levies Act, Employment Equity Act and the South African Qualifications Authority Act).
Mind-the-Gap, a quality service provider in people development aims to provide a practical solution in assisting organisations addressing their training and skills related agendas.
We assist companies in planning, implementing and analysing effective training, assessment and people development strategies that work. We are a fully accredited training provider with Services SETA and the South African Board for People Practices (SABPP) and pride ourselves on being experts in learning and development.
