ENGLISH SUMMARY : The aim of this study was to assess the implementation of the National Youth Service Programme (NYSP) in the Gauteng Province, Department of Roads and Transport. A study of this nature was vital, given the relatively high rate of youth unemployment; school drop outs and shortage of skills in South Africa. The programme was assessed against the objectives of the study; which were, interalia, to determine the specific skills programmes offered to youth on the National Youth Service Programme; to gauge the perceptions of Programme officials, Learners, Project managers and Training Providers on the implementation of skills programmes of the National Youth Service Programme. Thirty (30) participants were purposively selected from different categories within the Gauteng Province, Department of Roads and Transport; including Programme officials, Project managers, Training providers and learners. The study found that various skills programmes were provided to young people on the National Youth Service Programme, including project management, entrepreneurship, facilitation and instructor courses, road safety and driving licence qualification. In view of these results, it was recommended that initiation of skills programmes on the NYSP needs to be improved through learner involvement, coordination of experiential learning activities and diversification of learnerships to accommodate learners’ skills needs.
