Changes in the shape of the post-school system in South Africa

The graphic below shows how the shape of the South African post-school system has change in the past four years. While there was growth across all sectors of the post-school system from 2010 to 2012, most sectors have not grown from 2012 to 2014. In fact, some sectors, such as private universities and public adult education, have shrunk between 2012 and 2014. The graph also shows that the public college sector grew the most relative to other sectors such as public universities, but, worryingly, so has the number of NEETs.
