Multi-Stakeholder Collaborative Network
IntroductioniNeSI 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.
Stakeholders in the networkThe network consists of:
- FET colleges and civil society
- supporting the government's e-skills agenda
- offering their development training with the intention of contextualising it within the South African and African environment.
- assisting with research
- promoting the innovation application factories and assisting with which local apps will work.
- Memorandums of Understandings (MOUs) are being signed to align and integrate with relevant government departments.
- The alignment also ensures duolication doesn't occur.
government agencies and SOEs

- assisting with alignment
- where applicable on the provincial level, checking that municipalities are capacitated to provide service.
global development partners and agencies
- Drawing on their experience, architecture and framework, and ensuring their network is channelled through iNeSI.
Meaningful participation and contribution to the e-skills agendaTo 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.
