An increasing dissatisfaction of industry employers with the stated lack of ability of the `paper` certified graduates seeking employment in the field of systems support and networking has precipitated a review of the competencies desired by industry.
Three years of research in the sector has revealed the need for entry level candidates who are capable of applying a range of institutionally acquired skills in the workplace, in the field of systems support, in a manner that adds business value. The stated requirement is for the formation of a new set of skills and competencies, within the specific focus of networking/systems support, contextualised as appropriate for a wide range of related industry sectors.
