|dc.description.abstract||The study was aimed at discovering the extent to which the education system of Venda
satisfies the human resource needs of that area. Chapter one not only outlines the aim
of the study but also defines certain terminology used in the text. It also gives an outline
of the research methodology.
Chapter two identifies the theoretical guidelines with regard to how the education system
is related to human resource needs. In defining the education system the chapter
indicates that education cannot be divorced from the society in which it exists and
therefore must be seen as a social, cultural and economic phenomenon.
Chapter three examines the manner in which human resources function as a determinant
of the education system. In examining the meaning of human resources it indicates the
importance of developing the skills of the people as well as indicating the importance of
attitudes towards work of the people, thus showing that skills and attitudes together help
create good human resources for the growth and development of society.
Chapter four indicates general educational needs as well as the criteria to be used for the
purposes of this research. It indicates that basic skills should be developed in all people
so that they can be able to adjust properly to the workplace. It emphasises the
importance of reading, writing, computation and speaking abilities as the basis for
education which intends to develop good human resources.
Chapter five is the empirical study. It therefore indicates how the postal questionnaire
was used. It also contains the results of the empirical study, and explains them.
Chapter six gives the conclusions as well as the recommendations that are a result of this
research. It concludes that the education system and society are bound together and
should not be separated, that human resource development is an important aim of
education systems and therefore development should not be one-sided but should be
complete, that is, it should include social and cultural skills and economic development.
Thus education in Venda should not ignore this, and should be of a good quality as from
the lowest standards, so that whether a person has an education of up to Standard 5, 8 or
10 it should not be an insurmountable handicap to adjustment to the work situation.||en_US
