The Services SETA has been
established to ensure that the skills needs of the services sector are identified
and addressed. This will be achieved through the SETA forming partnerships with
its stakeholders and role-players and implementing the business plan.
Sector Education and Training
Authorities (SETA's) have been established in terms of the Skills Development
Act and as from 1 April 2000, will be responsible for disbursement of the training
levies payable by all employers. These levies will be collected by the South
African Revenue Service via the Department of Labour, and are to be disbursed
through a management system motivated by skills requirement assessment and monitoring.
Thus SETA's will ensure
that the skill requirements of the sector are identified and that the adequate
and appropriate skills are readily available. The SETA would contribute to the
improvement of sector skills through achieving a more favourable balance between
demand and supply, and would ensure that education and training:
Is provided subject to validation
and quality assurance;
Meets agreed standards within a national framework;
Ensures that new entrants to the labour market are adequately trained, and;
Acknowledges and enhances the skills of the current work force.
The Department of Labour evaluated the applications for SETA's and the Minister
of Labour established 25 SETA's on 20 March 2000.
