What are SETAS About?
SETA stands for Sector Education and Training Authority. These authorities are educational organisations created by the Minister of Labour, Membathisi Mdladlana, on 3 March 2005. SETA’s aim is to make sure the National Skills Development Strategy is being used as effectively as it can to improve skills of people in their sector.
SETA’s deal with learnerships, internships, learning programmes and unit based skills programmes in every industry and career path.
For the reasons of planning and managing training, the economy of South Africa has been split up into 23 sectors, each one having its own SETA. Sectors are made up of economic activities which are linked and related, so for example, there will be a SETA dealing with the banking sector, another dealing with information technology, another for the manufacturing sector and one for agriculture. Both the public and private sectors are covered by SETA.
