Problem Statement

Our client wanted to understand the skills supply in Africa, and whether it matched skills demand, to then make recommendations and informed decisions on their future work in education support for Africa. There was no existing method to carry out this research to understand the skills profiles of African students and what their schools were teaching.


With SPRI and SPRP, our client was able to work with 5 universities across Africa, to use SPRI to profile the skills of students across multiple faculties and levels of education. The second task was then to use JobKred and other partners’ labour market data to understand skills demand in Africa, Global Data, as well as doing a comparison with Singapore Data, to measure whether there was a gap between skills supply and demand.
