Multi-Stakeholder Collaborative Network


iNeSI is able to achieve its aims through building a mutlit-stakeholder collaborative network. This allows fo the massfication of e-skills delivery at all levels in society - thought leaders, ICT practitioners, ICT users and the ICT illiterate.

Collaboration is the to unlock the e-skills potential within South africa. iNeSI operates as an aggregator and sharer of e-skills training, research and policy development, innovation strategies, and applications and montoring and evalutation frameworks across stakeholder groups.

A national architecture for coordination and aggregation around demand and supply, across all stakeholder groups, is continuously being built. Stakeholders include business, government, education and civil society. The multi-stakeholder collaborative network allows iNeSI to link between outputs and impact, and helps existing service providers to demonstrate measurable impact against national strategic plans.

Meaningful participation and contribution to the e-skills agenda

To deliver an integrated approach, the mutli-stakeholder collaborative network cuts across government, business, education and civil society, including labour and global developmental partners and agencies.

The multi-stakeholder collaborative network provides a local architecture that allows for independent collaboration across levels and discipline focus in government and education.

Within this network, iNeSI has created a global development contributory framework to support e-skills.
