Overview and Functions of RIME Division
The Research Information Monitoring and Evaluation (RIME) Division plays a pivotal role in managing knowledge generation, as well as packaging and presenting it in a way that influences policy and projects in the HWSETA.
The division is also charged with the responsibility to monitor and evaluate implemented skills development projects and programmes and to find causal links to positive impacts of these skills development projects. In short, the RIME division:
- commissions and internally conducts sector specific research on areas to enrich the existing body of knowledge on skills development practices
- track and report on progress made by learners on learning programmes, their perceptions of the programme as they experience it and problems encountered. With this information, RIME makes judgements whether the desired impact will be made
- monitors and reports on the training activities of constituent training providers in relation to quality provision, objectives of the training programme and transfer of knowledge to learners
- monitors the usage of training (skills development) grants given to employers
