    The Minister, Naledi Pandor, has promulgated the National Skills Development Plan on the 06th Feb. It is a very interesting read, and clarifies the status of the SETAs. The doc is attached.

    The most interesting point here is on (top of page) number 38

    “Quality assurance functions carried out by the SETAs including the workplace and undertaken by the National Artisan Moderation Body will be effectively integratedinto the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO).”

    The SETAs will no longer have a 5 year incorporation but there will be improved monitoring.
    Levies remain at 1% – but Regulations to follow on Mandatory & Discretionary grants.

    On the subject of money – that is skills levies (SDL) – I have never understood why we need to shift the money around.

    The levies are paid to SARS.

    SARS could disburse the 20% to NSA and the Admin cost to the SETAs – I recall it was about 12% – and the amount to QCTO – whatever the new amount will be.

    SARS could keep hold of the levies amount – I would suggest that they are far more efficient than the SETAs.

    Then the SETAs could still evaluate the Mandatory Grant Annexure 2 (WSP ATR PIVOTAL Plan PIVOTAL completed) report and when approved – request payment from SARS to stakeholder.

    The same with Discretionary Grants – all sign-on documents completed – SARS please pay first tranch.
    Intervention completed – SARS please pay completion tranche.

    The SETA could then concentrate on learning and development and all the research required – as learning and development specialists.
