This Fact Sheet provides a detailed profile of people who are NEET, in order to support decision-making in the PSET system. Information about people who are NEET assists the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), Community Education and Training (CET) colleges, Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges and other stakeholders to make informed decisions about PSET provisioning. In particular, NEET data provides the DHET and its stakeholders with evidence that can be used to inform the development of policy, strategies and plans, and the setting of appropriate targets and effective budgeting.
