Frequently asked questions

Our sector has an elevated risk of injury and we cannot afford to have learners on site without cover, in the event of injury.
COIDA takes an average of 21 days to obtain, so it is advisable to always have this on hand. It is good practice to protect employees and learners in the event of injury while at your premises.

As a public institution, we may not do business with entities whose tax matters are not in order.

Our policies require that preference be given to organisations that comply with BBBEE requirements.

Discretionary grants are awarded to legal entities and some grants are only available to certain types of entities, for example NPO’s and trade unions.

This is one way the SETA can confirm that the company a) is legally compliant b) is correctly registered against SASSETA (SETA 19).

SASSETA policy is to give preference to our stakeholders, including trade unions, NGO’s and Cooperatives operating in our sector. Due to very limited funding, SASSETA is unable to fund companies registered elsewhere.

SASSETA publishes its DG policy, which includes its funding framework, clearly articulating inclusions, preferences and exclusions. Except in the case of persons living with disabilities, SASSETA will not exceed the grant amounts stated in its policy.

SASSETA recommends a ratio of one (1) Assessor for every 25 learners applied for (for Training Provider) and a ratio of one (1) Subject Matter Expert (a person who holds the qualification him/herself and has vast experience) for every five (5) unemployed learners applied for (for Employers).
This is important so that a learner / intern, based at a workplace, can obtain workplace-based experience under the supervision and guidance of a qualified person

Submission of the WSP/ATR or Pivotal Plan (for small companies employing less than 50 employees) is a legislated prerequisite to accessing the discretionary grant.

With public funds, valid documents must be produced for audit purposes. Copies that are not clear, not certified, or certified more than three (3) months before the closing date will be considered invalid.

All fields on the application form are required. Where these are not applicable, rather indicate so than leave blank.

All compulsory requirements assist in the adjudication process. A checklist is attached to each form – we suggest you have at least two people go through your application diligently before submission.

For each new funding window SASSETA aligns application forms to evaluation requirements and the adverts in order to provide sufficient detail to make a decision.
There are two application forms in the current funding window:
1) Employer application form – to be used by private employers, community based organisations, NGO’s, Cooperatives, trade unions and public training institutions who wish to apply for grants to train their employees / unemployed persons.
2) Provider application form

SASSETA researches and updates the skills requirements of the sector annually, primarily through WSP’s submitted, focus groups and interviews. Employers are urged to participate in these to ensure that the SETA correctly forecasts demand in order to plan for the supply of skills.

SETA stands for Sector Education and Training Authority. A SETA’s main purpose is to contribute to the improvement of skills in South Africa. At present there are 23 SETAs that service the various sectors and industries in South Africa. In addition, each SETA has been registered by SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority) as the ETQA (Education and Training Quality Assurance) for their sector(s).

An ETQA is a SAQA-accredited Education & Training Quality Assurance Body. ETQA’s are responsible for monitoring and auditing the standards of providers and qualifications offered? within their areas of scope.

(a) is registered as a provider in terms of the applicable legislation at the time of application for accreditation;

(b) has a quality management system that includes but is not limited to:

  • quality management policies which define the training the provider wishes to offer
  • quality management procedures that allow the provider to practise its defined quality management policies; or
  • review mechanisms that ensure that the quality management policies and procedures defined are applied and remain effective;

(c) is able to develop, deliver and evaluate learning programmes which result in specified registered standards or qualifications;

(d) has the:

  • necessary financial, administrative and physical resources to continue as a going concern
  • policies and practices for staff selection, appraisal and development;
  • policies and practices for learner entry, guidance and support systems;
  • policies and practices for the management of off-site practical or work-site components,
  • policies and practices for the management of assessment which include appeals systems;
  • necessary reporting procedures (do you mean span of control?); and
  • the ability to achieve the desired outcomes, using available resources and procedures considered by the Education and Training Quality Assurance Body as necessary to develop, deliver and evaluate learning programmes that result in registered standards or qualifications contemplated in paragraph (c); and

(e) has not already been granted accreditation by or applied for accreditation to another Education and Training Quality Assurance Body contemplated in Regulation 2 of the ETQA Regulations.

The accreditation of an education and training provider benefits the various stakeholders in the following ways:

  • An accredited provider has credibility in the eyes of the public.
  • The learning programmes offered by an accredited provider culminate in NQF credits.
  • The qualification obtained by learners enjoys national and international recognition.
  • Accreditation serves as a surety that the provider has the necessary capacity and resources pertinent to the delivery of quality education and training.
  • Accreditation compels the provider to constantly remain on the cutting edge of quality education provision.
  • When a provider is accredited by SASSETA , the users know that:
    1. The provider meets all SAQA and SASSETA ETQA requirements for quality delivery of education, training, assessment, design and management.
    2. The credits and qualifications offered by that provider are nationally registered
    3. Qualifications that learners achieve are nationally and internationally recognized.
    4. The provider has access to many forms of support and capacity building offered by the SASSETA.

BEAR IN MIND THAT THE TABS AND ROUTES WILL CHANGE IN THE NEAR FUTURE AS THE NEW WEBSITE IS BEING RE-DEVELOPED

  • To start the process of accreditation you will have to complete the: “Accreditation Application Form “
    1. Go to SASSETA website: www.sasseta.org.za
  • On the Home page go to Forms and Downloads
  • Click on ETQA
  • On the extreme Right hand side you will notice the heading Download Documents :
  • Accreditation Application Form
  • Accreditation Program Evaluation Form
  • Guide &Application form for the Registration of Assessors and Moderators
  • Provider Accreditation manual
  • Provider Self Evaluation Guide

Click on any of these headings to open the document

Examples of what the abovementioned documents look like

Full Accreditation

A training provider is awarded Full Accreditation when he, at the sole discretion of the SASSETA, has complied with all the accreditation requirements. The provider offers NQF registered Qualifications and Unit Standards. Programs are evaluated in accordance to a set program evaluation criteria. During this time a relationship will be established with the SASSETA in terms of which a program of continuous audit and quality improvements will be established

Provisional Accreditation

Provisional Accreditation is a temporary status given to providers that have not met all the criteria for full accreditation. All providers are ultimately required to meet the criteria for full accreditation and may not remain provisionally accredited indefinitely. The SASSETA usually grants a training provider provisional accreditation status for a maximum of 1 year

Approval of Learning Programs

The SASSETA also has a responsibility for program approval. Program approval process may take place for two reasons:

Firstly , there may be providers that have applied to another ETQA for accreditation, and may have a limited number of programs that fall within the primary focus of the SASSETA ETQA. In these cases, the accrediting ETQA will request that the SASSETA ETQA undertakes a program approval process for this provider.

Secondly, there are instances where learning programs are not unit standard or qualification based and, at the sole discretion of the SASSETA, providers may be given approval for these learning programs for an agreed period of time, until there are unit standards /qualifications in place that are relevant for these program(s). The provider, however has to still comply with all the accreditation criteria as per SASSETA accreditation criteria.

A skills programme is a short learning programme that is occupationally-based and when completed, provides a learner with credits towards an NQF qualification. It is made up of one or more unit standards that are found within a qualification.

Go to SAQA home page at www.saqa.org.za

  • Click on icon “Qualifications and Unit Standards”
  • Click on brown bar “All Qualifications and Unit Satandards”
  • Click on “Search for a Unit Standard”
  • Type in the search field “Unit Standard ID” the Unit Standard No.

Do not fill in any of the other fields.

  • Click on “Go”
  • Click on the Unit Standard ID No. to access the Unit Standard

RPL stands for Recognition of Prior Learning and formally recognises a person’s knowledge or skills obtained through formal or informal training, or through on-the-job or life experience.

If the registered assessor (working for an Accredited Provider) assesses you to be competent you will be awarded a certificate by the certifying body (SASSETA in this case). This will also be recorded on the National Learner Record Database (a national registry of all credits and qualifications issued against a person’s ID number).

If the assessor does not find you competent, you will be given a report identifying those areas that you still need to address before certification can take place. The report will be developed by an accredited SASSETA training provider, accredited for the applicable unit standards against which you were found not yet competent. You may however be awarded a certificate of competence for individual unit standards.

RPL is a legally accepted academic process introduced in South Africa in 1995 as part as the SAQA Act. Major South African companies are using RPL as a component of overall assessment practice. There is no difference between the certification you will receive via RPL and the certification received by a learner who studied in a traditional way. RPL is a recognized way of gaining a qualification or credits through SAQA.

You need to produce sufficient evidence for the assessor to find you competent. The period will vary according to the individual and qualification. Allow at least three to four months for this process to be completed.

Assessment is the process of judging a person’s competence (skills, knowledge and attitudes) in relation to standardized credit bearing outcomes from the National Qualification Framework.

Person or bodies involved in adjudication? Why are they competent to judge?

After being accredited by SASSETA and receiving a formal letter of confirmation and a list of unit standards that you have been accredited to offer, you need to contactact SASSETA learning programs (leaner ships) department to arrange for the collection or postage of the applicable material.

Each accredited provider is granted accreditation for unit standards and / or qualifications falling within its area of primary focus (i.e. Safety and Security). If an accredited provider wishes to extend its provision of education and training to include unit standards that were not registered at the time of accreditation or unit standards not within its primary focus, such a provider should apply to the ETQA for extension of accreditation.

Ensure that you have SASSETA registered assessors and moderators registered against the unit standards that fall within the applicable qualification .After this sitting SASSETA will send a letter which you will use to come and fetch disks for the new learning material.

It is the responsibility of the accredited skills development provider to manage and monitor this expiry as stipulated in the accreditation report. Inform SASSETA ETQA in writing on a company letterhead of your situation so that a monitoring site visit can be arranged. It is after this visit that your provisional accreditation status will be extended depending on the findings. You are urged to implement training so that your status can be upgraded to full. Even if you have been training within your one year provisional accreditation status you still have to inform the ETQA for a Monitoring/ Verification visit to be scheduled. After a positive Monitoring and Evaluation visit your status will be tabled in the next ETQA Committee.

Inform SASSETA ETQA to make arrangements for a Quality Assurance of Learner Achievements (QALA) visit. SASSETA will send an appointed verifier to come and validate those learner achievements and make a decision whether the results are valid. Please note that the Skills Admin division will not print certificates without a positive verification report.

Contact Mmasello at 011347 0201 or mmakgalemele@sasseta.org.za to receive your report and file it in a safe place. Compile a development action to address the areas indicated in the report.

  • There is no fee charged for a person to be on a Learnership.
  • The employer must pay unemployed learners selected for a Learnership a learner allowance.
  • Employed learners because they already have a salary would not get the learners allowance.
  • In supporting employers who are implementing Learnerships, SETAs have Learnerships grants that they pay to employers towards tuition and learner allowance.
  • The purpose of the Learnership grant is not to pay the total cost of implementing the Learnership, but to offset some of the cost incurred by the employer.
  • The precise amount would depend on the type of the Learnership and the Minister of Labour has agreed to the minimum level of allowance and conditions but the employer can pay more.
  • The duration of a Learnership can take up to a minimum of one year.
  • If the employer selects you, you will have to sign a Learnership Agreement and a contract of employment for the duration of the Learnership. The Learnership Agreement would be signed by yourself (employed and unemployed learner), the employer(s) who will host/employed you for workplace learning and the training provider.
