dc.description.abstract PCF5 Sub-theme: Livelihoods // In any given country skills development is very valuable to any organisation, Production of goods and services is done by individuals or groups of individuals. To do this the individual or groups will need skills to perform competently. With skills the individual can be employable, the individual can determine their own destiny. Generally skills are quite important to society in general. // Because of the importance of skills to the individual, it is important that every individual accesses training so that he or she is able to determine his destiny. Currently particularly in Southern African Countries, not everybody is able to access training. With the rise in population grown and with economy of these countries going down, governments are unable to offer social amenities. Schools and Colleges cannot match the rising population. As a result fewer and fewer people are accessing training. The levels of poverty in the region has also put pressure on these governments to find to find solutions to the problem. However one apparent solution is the provision of skills to allow people participate in the production of goods and services as individuals or as members of grouped. Acquisition of skills enhances an individual’s performance. Skills result in increased productivity and competitiveness. // Paper ID 431
