One way of reducing unemployment in South Africa is to make sure that the mechanisms that help people find work function well. Centre for Development and Enterprise commissioned research to identify the most common 'routes to employment' and provide some analysis of how effectively these work. The routes examined include the informal sector, the Expanded Public Works Programme, the Jobs and Opportunity Seekers programme run through the National Youth Development Agency, learnerships offered by Sector Education and Training Authorities, and temporary employment services firms. This appears to be the first project of this kind, and the results are contained in a new report, Routes into formal employmenty: Public and private assistance to young job-seekers.
