Demands of skills and competencies are varying at faster pace, due to competitive and rapid market changes predominately in Small and Medium Enterprises, which urges for provision of flexible, work-integrated, continuous training, learning and development opportunities through Higher Education Institutions. There is a dire need for a paradigm shift in the training approaches in the formal and informal sector for developing skills in concurrence to the societal need.
