NEMISA’s vision: Digitally competent citizens
NEMISA develops e-skills capacity in South Africa by creating a partnership framework that guides e-skills initiatives. It is part of the solution to ensure that South Africans have the necessary e-skills (digital skills). NEMISA addresses e-skills interventions through teaching and learning, research, innovation, monitoring and evaluation, and aggregation.
NEMISA’s original mandate was to train previously disadvantaged individuals, particularly women, to equip them with necessary skills to play a significant role in the constantly changing broadcasting environment.
NEMISA is positioned to become iKamva Digital Skills Institute and its mandate has been extended to promote and guide the development, training, learning, research and innovation of digital skills.
