What is a SETA?
« on: August 01, 2015, 02:30:44 PM »
According to the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA),
SETA stands for Sector Education and Training Authority. The members of a SETA include employers, trade unions and government departments. SETAs are established by the Minister of Labour in terms of the Skills Development Act. The functions of SETAs are listed in that Act. These include the development and implementation of a sector skills plan, registering and promoting learnerships and applying to SAQA for accreditation as an Education and Training Quality Assurance body (ETQA) for qualifications in its sector.

For example, there is a SETA that deals with the tourism and hospitality sector; another is concerned with the development of skills in the information technology sector; another is responsible for the manufacturing sector and there is a SETA for agriculture.
