Multiple SETA accreditations?

Our clients often find that their area of expertise crosses over more than one SETA; the question is then raised – which SETA is required for accreditation?

 

First things first, a training provider is required to have a Primary Provider Accreditation with one of the SETAs.  Thereafter, the provider is able to apply for a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with any of the other twenty different SETAs.

In order to keep their business goal clear, our suggestion to clients is to make the primary SETA the SETA where the majority of their training is conducted.  For example, if a training provider spends the best part of the month offering Soft Skills training but also offers First Aid, the primary registration would be with the Services SETA and hereafter a MOU would be signed with the Health & Welfare SETA.  Under some circumstances, the unit standards even extend over multiple SETAs and hence does not require multiple SETA registrations.  E.g.  The First Aid unit standard is found under numerous SETAs.

Some SETAs however aren’t accessible to all Providers due to specific criteria.  For example, in order for a Training Provider to be granted accreditation by the Health & Welfare SETA, one of the company Directors is required to hold a qualification in the field specific that training accreditation is being applied for.  Meaning, if a training company wishes to offer the Nursing qualification, the Director is required to hold a registered Nursing Certificate.

Knowledge such as the above is one of the many reasons JTandA strive to keep abreast of the SETAs and the fields they serve, it enables us to best advise our clients on the SETA that most applies to their business.  Thereafter, should a MOU application potentially offer business growth, we work closely with the client to select the most suitable SETA for this development.

SETAs many options!

South Africa contrary to what the pessimists will have you believe, is alive with possibilities!  There are many options available which open the door of opportunity for anyone daring enough to equip themselves and then get going!

 

Preparing this piece was more difficult than I anticipated, simply due to mammoth task of having to select just four SETAs out of more than twenty; collectively they offer a hundred plus courses!  I decided to choose four SETAs based on what I believe is quintessential in South Africa today; they harness our natural resources and offer a solution to provide jobs.

 

I’ll kick things off with the Services SETA; this diverse SETA is composed of various chambers of industries.  The Chambers of the Services SETA comprises seventy (70) Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes that are clustered into sixteen (16) sub-sectors, which are further grouped into the following six (6) Chambers:

 

  1. Cleaning and Hiring Services,
  2. Communication and Marketing Services,
  3. Labour and Collective Services,
  4. Management and Business Services,
  5. Personal Care Services, and
  6. Real Estate and Related Services.

Services SETA

Listing the services as I’ve done above simply spells ‘opportunity’ in my mind!

 

A SETA that is vital for our country’s future is the AGRI SETA; Agriculture and Nature Conservation not only assure us of future food resources but also safeguards the protection of our national treasure – wildlife!  This SETA covers programmes such as Animal and Plant Production, Poultry Production and Processing, Rooibos Production and Processing and many more.

 

Speaking of national treasures, the tourism and hospitality industry is expected to contribute more than R499-billion to the South African GDP by 2020 (http://www.southafrica.info/business/economy/sectors/tourism-overview.htm#.V151tpBXerU).   It’s no wonder that CATHSETA is so highly regarded!  Within the Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Economic Sector, many avenues of fortuity exist:

 

  • Conservation & Guiding

*  Travel

*  Hospitality

*  Tourism

*  Gaming

*  Sport, Recreation & Fitness

  • Cultural
  • Heritage; Performing & Visual Arts

 

AGRI SETA

 

I could not possibly write a piece about opportunity without making mention of the MINING AND MINERALS SETA.  Mining as we’re all aware is currently experiencing challenges and production is down from its peak; South Africa is still however the world’s fifth largest gold producer and remains a cornucopia of mineral riches.  Essentially, we are still the largest producer of chrome, manganese, platinum, vanadium and vermiculite.  With this being said; to continue developing individuals in the following industries is paramount for our future economic growth:

 

*  Diamond Design and Evaluation

*  Electrical Engineering

*  Mineral processing

*  Mining operations

  • To mention a few….

 

Mining and Minerals SETA

 

I hope today’s piece is as convincing to you as it is to me that, not only is South Africa a land of great opportunity but that with the sheer number of education options available coupled with the extensive population number seeking employment, creating a well-oiled economic ‘machine’ is possible!
