Welcome to the OFO Register

The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) has developed the OFO Register as a bespoke information system that allows the DHET and relevant stakeholders to manage and maintain the Organising Framework for Occupations (OFO).

The OFO is a coded occupational classification system that is a key tool utilized by the DHET for identification, reporting and monitoring of skills demand and supply in the South African labour market. The OFO is constructed from the bottom-up by:

  • analysing jobs and identifying similarities in terms of a tasks and skills,
  • categorising similar jobs into occupations, and
  • classifying these occupations into occupational groups.

The current version of the OFO can be downloaded here. This version, and previous versions, of the OFO is available from the DHET website at www.dhet.gov.za
