"Hi Manya and Ganelle,
Absolutely! You can reach me on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 084 678 4254. Let's stand together and do this for the benefit of all.
I have received a second letter sent out to providers, but am still completely in the…"
"I agree with Renee and Janelle - We really are far too inactive as civic participants in South Africa. While I understand a forensic audit is an important and onerous task, to leave us in the dark to this extent is not acceptable. We need a platform…"
"Hi Lynell and all who are following,
I believe that we as South Africans are far too complacent. Perhaps we should join together as end users of SSETA processes to lobby for answers and an immediate solution to the problem. This is as unacceptable…"
"Hi Renee, if Services Seta does not respond to many requests, where do we go from here? Is this allowed? Who is going to help the Providers and learners now? How do we deal with the volumes of learners? What do you say to the…"
"Hi Jennifer, this is too strange. This is not the ethical way to treat providers, stakeholders or worst, the learners. My only thought can be that there must be fraudulent activities or large amounts of money missing. Maybe…"
"We certainly do want and need to know more. I have requested more information from several SSETA employees and managers without any response to date.
This is a major issue for service providers who deal with the SSETA in any capacity!"
"Is there any news of what exactly is going on with the Services Seta? I can not believe that there are no news or a solution given to learners awaiting verifications for qualifications? If anybody has any idea of what is happening and…"
"A skills-universe member Jackie Smith has posted as follow:
"We were advised that No site visits would be taking place for NON-Accredited training service providers due to internal restructuring.
We were also advised (in writing) that it was no…"
"We were in a similar position with the ETDP SETA. There was also a forensic investigation. Fraud was committed with the verification/ uploading of competencies. We were endorsed after verification and then had to wait four months…"
"Thanks to everyone for sharing thoughts and insights about this- my concern is for all the Learners out there waiting for certificates and verification of results- 8 months is a long time. I will escalate my investigation and see if I can get…"
"Thanks Des! It's a pity that everything is halted. The letter sent to providers indicate a period of 8 months. If this is true, then some providers will be closing doors, learners will loose opportunities of getting a job (as…"
"We're also greatly inconvenienced; it's most mystifying behaviour not to have an explanation. If we don't get clarification soon it'll be difficult to salvage a sense of professional mutual respect and consideration. "

I promised an update on the sorry saga of the slow payers... Well, I realised that threatening wouldn't help as they were in dire financial straits, so I organised them enough training so that they COULD pay me. How's that for a creative solution?!
Nedbank works alot with the Bankseta in Johannesburg. Bankseta does not only work in JHB but in all the regions. Maybe try them. Their number is 011 805 9661. Maybe they can help in finding a host employer to host the learners.
Good Luck and shout if you need more assistance
Many thanks for the acknowledgement. Can you send me a profile of your business and some contact info. Perhaps we can assist each other. Des Squire
