The mission of the National Skills Fund (NSF) is to provide funding for national skills development towards a capable workforce for an inclusive growth path.

Over the five-year strategic period from 2015/16 to 2019/20, the NSF's allocation of funds will be focused on the education and training of learners. Education and training of learners includes bursaries and scholarships, occupational programmes, skills programmes, workplace-based learning and worker education. The remainder of the funds will be allocated to developing and expanding the capacity of the Post-School Education and Training (PSET) system, as well as skills infrastructure development and skills development research, innovation and communication.
