  • Monitor and verify training interventions based on 1% payroll in a sustained manner
  • Capacitate workplace mentors
  • Proposal to use PS workplace for experiential learning – National Skills Accords expects government to take on learners, interns and apprentices
sector challenges
Sector Challenges
  • Develop WSPs that ensures national strategies are addressed
  • Utilise between 3% & 5% of payroll
  • Training initiatives to:
  • locate more resources to employees at cold face of delivery (front-line offices)
  • Create opportunities for unemployed
  • Workplace placement for those on learnerships, internships or apprenticeships
challenges of current training providers
Challenges of current training providers
  • Not delivering on credit bearing courses – qualification and unit standards
  • Too many short courses delivered by private providers
  • Too few accredited providers in provinces and rural areas
  • NSDSIII promoting public institutions: HEIs and FETs
  • PALAMA, Provincial academies, DIRCO Academy etc need to transform to QTCO standards of delivering on occupational qualifications
  • PSETA to facilitate and support providers on registration of occupational qualifications including those based on critical and scarce skills in PS e.g. Project Managers, Financial Management
  • MoUs with HEIs and FET Colleges – qualification development partners, trade and artisan training providers

Just as the SETA system is integral to meeting the challenge of reducing unemployment to below 15 percent by 2015, so too is the investment in training and skills development a non-negotiable imperative for developing an economically active and skilled workforce in South Africa.
