Request for Proposals (RFP) from Training Providers to deliver Services SETA Funded Learning Programmes



The Services Sector Education and Training Authority (SSETA) is a statutory body established through the Skills Development Act (1998) to enable its stakeholders to advance skills levels in the sector in accordance to government’s growth initiatives.  All SETAs were recently reviewed and SSETA has been re- licensed to execute its mandate for the next five years (to March 2016). The SSETA is striving to build a system where skills production and development respond to the socio-economic needs of our country and its labour market. Such high-quality skills will in turn enhance investment and improve service delivery; read more on

The SSETA requires suitably accredited training providers to apply to be registered onto the SSETA Training Provider Database. From the Database the SSETA will contract suitable training providers to provide a range of programmes to meet the needs of the sector.
