List of SETAs in South Africa

Submitted by Suzaan Beneke on Wed, 11/18/2020 - 11:12

Skilled workers are always in demand in South Africa, that’s for sure. If we’re being honest, it’s quite common for someone to enter the workforce straight out of high school with a poorly developed skillset.

One of the reasons for this is that going to college isn’t always an option but there are plenty of great learnerships on offer.

What is a SETA

SETA, which stands for Sector Education and Training Authority, was developed by the Department of Labour. SETA members are usually businesses, trade unions and government departments aimed at helping South Africans develop vocational (trade) skills.

There are 21 SETAs in South Africa, each with the same goal - to oversee training for out-of-school youth, matriculants and anyone else looking to develop extra skills and further training.
