Merseta Employer Questionnaire
 

My name is ….. and I am a BE@UP fieldworker  and I am requesting 30 minutes of your time so that I can ask you a few questions regarding the  learning programme you participated in with MERSeta. The MERSeta in response to the NSDS III, have implemented various workplace learning programs to assist learners and graduates with the much needed work experience. These include apprenticeship and learnerships. The MERSeta is now conducting a TRACER STUDY to  take stock of employment status post learning programme  activities and expectations of learners who have successfully passed their learning programme during the period1stApril 2012 to 30th March 2013. This is to establish whether these workplace learning initiatives were successful and effective towards skilling and increasing learners employability within the manufacturing and engineering space, identify areas of weaknesses and strengths to make recommendations on potential improvements on the program. The merSETA contracted BE@UP to conduct this study on their behalf.
