SETA Training

 

What is a SETA?

SETA stands for Sector Education and Training Authority. A SETA is a body that is responsible for overseeing skills development and training within a particular industry sector. Different SETAs were established for the different industry sectors in terms of the Skills Development Act 97 of 1998. A SETA can also be accredited by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) as an Education and Training Quality Assurance body (ETQA), which allows the SETA to accredit training providers that provide education and training in its sector.

What is the role of a SETA?

The main purpose of a SETA is to improve and develop skills within its sector, to identify skills development needs, and to ensure that national standards are maintained. In order to achieve this purpose, a SETA will develop and implement a sector specific skills plan, and will monitor education and training within its sector.

Once a SETA has been accredited by SAQA as an ETQA, it also evaluates and accredits training providers within its sector.

SETAs also do the following:

  • Administer the funds that are collected in terms ¬†of the Skills Development Levy,
  • Promote the creation of learnerships within the relevant sector, and
  • Perform quality assurance functions in order to ensure that the applicable standards are being maintained,
  • Aim to ensure that learners and members of the workforce have the skills that are required by the relevant industry sectors.
