TRIAD HUMAN CAPITAL & SKILLS DEVELOPMENT: The TRIAD is a concept that entails three sectors at which holistic human capital and skills development take place, namely, (i) Community; (ii) Institutions of Learning (Academies, Colleges, Universities); and (iii) Industry. I am encouraging our country to approach human capital and skills development holistically, and invest at all levels of individuals' development. Programmes and interventions should be introduced within the Communities, Institutions of Learning, and Industries. Then, there are those programmes and interventions that should be aimed at transitioning between the three sectors, and closing the gaps between them. The type of transitional & bridging programmes & interventions, i.e. (a) Study & Learning Readiness Programmes (Bridge 1 - Between Communities and Learning Institutions); (b) Work Integrated Learning Programmes (Bridge 2 - Between Learning Institutions and Industry); and (c) Socio - Economic Development & Scholarships/Bursary Programmes (Bridge 3 - Between Companies and the Communities from which they pull labour force).
