I agree with Catherine. Looks a lot like more of the same and, in the process, the SETAS will continue to channel an enormous amount of private sector funds into the public sector education system at the expense of independent private providers. State control remains the dominent theme and it has already destroyed large amounts of private initiative and done little to address the real skills shortages. As far as apprenticeships go that looks a lot like full circle. That part used to be done very well by Technical Colleges and Technikons in association with both government and private sector employers. Hopefully that capacity can be meaningfully restored and the numbers and quality elevated to the required levels.
