Gauteng is still attracting people from across the educational spectrum, including those with no education. This is inevitable. What is important is how all types of migration are managed to ensure maximum value is achieved from the flow of human capital to the province.
While cross border migrants were less likely to have completed matric, they were as likely as the Gauteng born to have tertiary and postgraduate education.
Although this data from QoL 2011 suggests that Gauteng is attracting large numbers of migrants with no or little education, QoL 2011 found the majority of all migrants with no education (63%) or only primary education (52%) had arrived in Gauteng before 1994 and over two thirds of migrants with secondary and tertiary education arrived after 1994.
