SETA stands for Sector Education and Training Authority. These industry bodies were created by the Minister of Labour in 2005 to develop and implement sector-specific skill plans to increase the skills of people in each sector.

There are millions of people who need to learn new skills. Some are already in jobs who need to improve their skills and to learn new ones. Each year there are thousands of young people who finish their education and are looking for jobs.
More than 50% of Grade 12 learners leave school without basic skills to seek work. They need skills and training. There are nearly 4.3 million people who are unemployed. Most of them have few skills and little training.
There is an estimated figure of between 6,000 and 7,000 unemployed graduates. There are those who want to run their own businesses; people with disabilities, and those whose current skills provide them with barely enough money to survive. All need and can benefit from skills development.

SETAs have been established to manage the many skills development needs. Each SETA coordinates skills development in its particular sector.
A sector is made up of economic activities that are linked and related. So, for example, there is a SETA that deals with the banking sector: another is concerned with skills development in the information technology sector; another is responsible for the manufacturing sector and there is a SETA for agriculture. The SETAs cover both the public and private sectors.

Please note: SETAs do not provide learnerships directly to the public. They facilitate the creation of learnerships with employers. You can contact SETAs to find out which employers offer learnerships.
