BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.
The short supply of skilled staff is a serious obstacle to the competitiveness of industry in South Africa. The purpose of the Skills Development Act is thus aimed to:
- Develop skills for the South African work force;
- Increase investment in education and training, and improve return on investments in those areas;
- Encourage employers to promote skills development by using the workplace as an active learning environment;
- Encourage workers to participate in learnership and other training programmes;
- Improve employment prospects by correcting previous disadvantages through training and education, and
- Ensure the quality of education and training in and for the workplace.
The levy grant scheme, legislated through the Skills Development Levies Act, 1999, serves to fund the skills development initiative in the country. The intention is to encourage a planned and structured approach to learning, and to increase employment prospects for work seekers. Participating fully in the scheme will allow you benefit from incentives and to reap the benefits of a better skilled and more productive workforce.
The Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) serves to structure the type and amount of training for the year ahead, and is based on the skills needs of the organisation. A good WSP should consider current and future needs, taking into account gaps identified through a skills audit, the performance management system, succession planning initiatives, and any new process or technology changes planned for the year. The Annual Training Report (ATR) consists of all attendance registers, proof of expenditure and training provider used. In this report the SETA can establish whether training was done or is in the process of being done and needs to be submitted yearly.
It is important to use an accredited training provider because it enables the SETA to establish that the training provider used is not a "FLY BY NIGHT" training provider but instead it is a recognized training provider, with recognised standards. Mandatory grants are a refund against all monies contributed towards the skills development levy and not on monies spent on training.
