Globalisation, Education and Training: Insights from the South African Automotive Sector

Other

This study seeks to explore the relationships between globalisation and education and training through an examination of certain transnational corporations, operating in one sector in a specific country. Through an examination of skills development within the South African automotive industry (focusing particularly on the cases of DaimlerChrysler South Africa and BMW South Africa) I seek to shed further light on the broader debate on the relationship between globalisation and education and training. It is intended that this largely sociological study located in a particular context can provide a useful companion to the global study of te Velde, which is argued primarily from the disciplinary position of a development economist.
