#WorkersDay: Narrowing gap between skill and opportunity

Data published by Statistics South Africa at the end of March this year showed that the country’s official unemployment rate rose 0.4 percentage points to a record 35.3% in the fourth quarter of last year.

South Africa’s redAcademy, however, is one organisation that’s taking the skills and unemployment crises head-on.
