SETA stands for Sector Education and Training Authority and is an initiative of the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS). SETA’s facilitate training for out-of-school youth as well as anyone who needs additional skills and further training. 

Members of a SETA include employers, trade unions and government departments. SETA’s have been established by the Labour Department to assist with the Skills Development Act. With approximately 23 SETAs in the country, each SETA is responsible for managing and creating learnerships, internships, unit-based skills programmes and apprenticeships within its jurisdiction.

What is the role of a SETA?

  • To develop and Implement a sector skills plan.
  • Developing and administering learnerships, accrediting education and training providers.
  • Supporting the implementation of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
  • Monitor provision to ensure that programmes are being followed and register assessors.
  • Collaborate with other Education and Training Quality Assurers (ETQA).
  • Report to the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) on how they fulfil the ETQA role.
  • Disburse levies collected from employers in their sector.
