SETA Accreditation
What are the benefits of SETA accredited training?
SETA (Skills Education Training Authority) accredited training entails that a skills development course is approved by one of the 21 industry specific SETAs. Each SETA sets specific standards for training providers which ensures the quality of the SETA accredited course. Once the attendee has completed the SETA accredited training, they will obtain recognition of competence that is recognised throughout the whole of South Africa. It confirms the level of proficiency and quality of training undertaken for current and future employers.
Therefore, the main benefit for employers is the knowledge that a certain standard has been set and adhered to by the course provider. The attendee has the benefit of knowing their training will be recognized throughout South Africa and can aim to complete a full Qualification Title if numerous courses have been successfully passed of the same qualification standard.
Will the company be able to recover the course costs from SARS?
According to the Skills Development Act (No 9 of 1999), any company registered in South Africa with an annual total payroll exceeding R500 000 per annum should pay a skill levy of 1% of their monthly payrolls to SARS. The funds are used for education and training in businesses within various sectors, with the aim to expand the knowledge and competencies of their labour force. If the company fulfills certain conditions, for example, a successful implementation of a Workplace Skills Plan, the company will be eligible to apply for a Mandatory Grant rebate of their skills levy. In addition, companies, can apply for funds through Pivotal Programmes. The process differs between the SETAs and we recommend that you contact the relevant SETA directly for more information.
