ETDP SETA Policy Changes 2015/2016

During the recent ETDP SETA workshop held in Durban in November 2015 the following changes was discussed.


In an effort to line-up with the QCTO procedures the ETDP SETA will differentiate between Internal, External and Verification procedures in the future. This means that the learning process from start to end will be broken down in the following stages, namely:


  1. Enrolment
  2. Delivery of learning (contact sessions)
  3. Workplace experience (practical)
  4. Assessment
  5. Internal Moderation
  6. External Moderation
  7. Verification
  8. Certification


The ETQA Manager also emphasized during the workshop that all queries/complaints received by the ETDP SETA will be handed over to the Quality Assurance Committee that will advice on any changes in any policy or procedure in the future.


DATANET, the current online data system used by the ETDP SETA will be taken offline in January and replaced in April 2016 by a similar system designed for the SERVICES SETA. During January and April all Training Providers will submit verification request to the SETA via Excel Sheets, similar currently been used by the SERVICES SETA, during the move over process. (January to April 2016)


More changes in January are expected with the Verification process. Verifiers will during External Moderation review the Training Providers entire Quality Management System, Legal documents such as the SARS TAX Clearance certificates and implementation strategies such as the use of Notional Hours and support. Adverts for new verifiers will be placed shortly in all regions to enable the ETDP SETA for implementation these new procedures.


Filing of learner Portfolio of Evidence files by Training Providers for a period of 5 years was also discussed and re-enforced. This impossible task that will result in additional storage space that will add additional cost to learning programmes in the future.


The ETDP SETA will also place more emphasis and checks in 2016 on the implementation of Notional Hours, especially for Training Providers offering Assessor and Moderator courses in the same week, including public tenders that does not have the capacity to deliver the programmes according to the guidelines stipulated by the SAQA policy. This will also include support to learners during the learning process and appointing of 3rd parties through MOU’s by Training Providers that allows individuals to make use of their learning programmes on a commission based process.


The lack of the ETDP SETA’s Head Office in Johannesburg to communicate and answer their telephones was as also raised, including the new learning programme approval process that is currently an impossible task to follow through the ETDP SETA. More templates for learning programme design will be placed on their website in January as guidelines that will hopefully streamline the approval process. It was also emphasized during the workshop that all learning material should be returned by the SETA’s Head Office to the Training Provider on completion of review.

Proposal for the New National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS) and Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) landscape

“Proposal for the New National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS) and Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) landscape within the context of an Integrated and Differentiated Post-School Education and Training System (NSLP-2015)”

The DHET – Department of Higher Education and Training has called for public comments on the future of skills development in South Africa. Minister Blade Nzimande has released his proposals for the Setas and members of the public and interested organisations have until 20th January 2016 to submit their comments.

The proposals is that the Setas would be renamed and re-purposed so that they would become departments of the national Department of Higher Education and Training and renamed as Sector Education and Training Advisory Boards. It is also proposted that instead of their current 5-year life spans as determined by the relevant Minister, the proposal is that these Setabs (!) would be permanent structures.

This new move could suggest that DHET have more power over the SETA’s having questions over the future role of SAQA and the QCTO. One of the other major benefits for DHET would be to have more control over the Skills Levies Fund that could result in major issues for the private sector including skills training on lower levels, also the future of private FET colleges and Training Providers.

During 2013 with the amendment of the Skills Act the allocation of funds to levy paying organisations was reduced from 60% to 20% that resulted in an estimated 40% drop in training statistics between the SETA’s in South Africa. This year, DHET excluded annual training statistics from the different SETA’s in the DHET annual report. Why? Is this part of a cover-up process or a simple strategic move to change the allocation of the Skills Levies Fund to other priorities.

Another change in the 2013 Skills Development Act allowed the DHET to allocate more funds paid by the private sector to Universities and FET’s. Would this last move from DHET mean that Skills Development South Africa especially in the private sector would come to a total stand-still?
