« on: August 01, 2015, 02:16:47 PM »
The functions and responsibilities of SETAs are set out in Chapter 3, section 10 of the Skills Development Act, 1998.
The main function of SETAs is to work towards to the raising of skills, and to bring skills to the employed, (or to people who are not employed but who want to be), in their sector.
In order for SETAs to be successful in their functions, the Skills Development Act states that the functions and duties of a SETA are to:
    *Develop a sector skills plan
    *Implement the sector skills plan
    *Develop and administer learnerships
    *Support the implementation of the National Qualifications Framework
    *Undertake quality assurance
    *Disburse levies collected from employers in their sector
    *Report to the Minister of Labour and to the South African Qualifications

The Act also gives power to SETAs to take appropriate action to enable them to undertake these various functions.
