- Provide recommendations based on the data analysed and simulation models and scenarios generated.
The study is expected to explore the extent and impact of brain drain in the Higher and Tertiary Education sector. It is envisaged that findings from this study will be critical in informing the planned needs assessment. The findings are also expected to stimulate policy dialogue among key stakeholders on the recovery and development of the human resource training system in Zimbabwe.
