REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP) to conduct a longitudinal developmental evaluation of the National Digital Ecosystem for Post -School Education and Training Programme.

JET and the merSETA invite well-experienced independent service providers to submit proposals in line with the Terms of Reference below.

JET Education Services (JET) and the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector Education and Training Authority (merSETA), have initiated a collaborative programme titled Post School Education and Training Collaboration and Learning Opportunities and Utilisation of Data (PSET CLOUD). 

The purpose of the overall programme is to establish an interoperable digital ecosystem that will strengthen, coordinate and improve efficiencies in the governance and management of the post-school education and training (PSET) system. The main objective of the programme is to ensure that data sets are interoperable, well synchronised, and used effectively as sources of information for planning and improving efficiency in the PSET system.


Phase 1 of the programme has been completed and involved a situational analysis of the PSET sector, a mapping study, an international review of similar initiatives and a feasibility report. These research reports have been condensed and included in a publication titled Unlocking the Power of Data: A review of the state of readiness of the Post-School Education and Training sector in South Africa for enhanced data interoperability, released in November 2020 and available on the JET website, www.jet.org.za.
