GAP report

This is the GAP report of the SUCSESS project. It was prepared in the first work package (WP1) during April and May 2020.


The research objectives were:

1.           To determine whether the teaching environment in the selected universities is currently producing the competencies required by industry i.e. the extent to which universities are preparing students for a career by equipping them with the desired competencies and skills.

2.           To assess the impact of university/industry collaboration activities on  students’ employability and work-readiness.


Data was collected by a survey to students and by interviewing lecturers and industry representatives in  South Africa, Finland and the United Kingdom. The programmes in focus of the study were tourism and hospitality as well as business programmes.
