Very good point, and quite correct!
One of the biggest problems I’ve encountered is completely incorrect advice to clients from their auditors, not only about Skills Development, but also about Employment Equity.
It’s rather like asking a Petrol Pump Attendant if he thinks you should have your teeth capped.

I have been submitting WSP/ATRs and various other documents to 18 different Setas each year for the past 12 years.
My experience with the W&R Seta is that they stand alone on the seta landscape with regard not only to customer service, but professionalism.
I find their staff, from Reception to Regional Manager, friendly, welcoming, cou…[Read more]
Government once again making a massive, over complicated machine which will suck up money without improving the lot of the employers or their workforces. Too much vested interest, me thinks.
@antheaswift Yup, let’s do that.
My life is a little chaotic for the next few days or so, but I’ll give you a call after that.
Correct, but go back to Andre’s orginial question where he asks if a Seta must pay vat on an invoice submitted to it. The answer is yes because Setas are not exempted from paying vat on commercial transactions where they are paying for goods or services.

Common confusion, and regrettably Setas have no idea how this thing works.

The “public money” thing refers to grants (like mandatory grants and discretionary grants)…[Read more]
@peterriches Glad you enjoyed it – it’s tough! I didn’t run it, I’m nursing a damaged hamstring at the moment, Back on the road soon, I hope. Keep well.
@alanhammond Hi Alan,
You seemed to be having a good run yesterday!
Did you enjoy the route?
Des is correct, short courses (ie non unit standard courses) have never needed to be accredited.
At one stage SAQA “recorded” them because of pressure from providers, but they were never accredited. So it follows that Seta ETQAs could never accredit them either.

Surely it would be a better idea for the Services Seta to get its own house in order first, and to start doing the things a Seta ought to be doing correctly?
@antheapoole I’m good thanks Anthea, not training any more – it’s too time consuming. I do SDF stuff, Employment Equity, Umalusi accreditations, and basically anything else! Good to hear from you.
