How To Register With Seta As A Facilitator


It has become mandatory for people working in the Education and Training sector to have Assessor, Moderator and Facilitation certifications. However, you need to make sure that you meet a few requirements before you even start with your registrations.




The Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) is a vocational skills training organisation in South Africa. There are a total of 21 SETAs in South Africa, each one manages and creates learnerships, skills-based programmes and internships in a relevant sector. 

Every industry is covered by one of these SETAs, and if you’d like to be a facilitator in a specific industry or field, it is best that you look up which SETA you fall under. Some qualifications are flexible enough to overlap in more than one SETA.

So, if you want to register to become a facilitator, then it is important that you know that registering as a facilitator has become a compulsory requirement for those in the Education and Training sector.

Prior to applying for the facilitation short course, it is important that the prospective facilitator is already competent in the learning area in which they will provide training.

Here are the steps to follow to apply for the Facilitation short course at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT):

  1. Click on the link of the university of technology’s short course page
  2. On the course finder bar, type facilitate and click on search
  3. Click on the view course Facilitate Learning Using a Variety of Given Methodologies tab
  4. Click on 'Begin Application'
  5. Download the application for short course studies form
  6. Fill the form, gather relevant documents and submit altogether to the course administrator

Prospective students have been advised to consult the university website to see which course administrator to go to.

Once the application has been accepted and processed, the course administrator will issue a student number to the student.

However, CPUT is not the only institution that offers this course, but individuals may also apply directly to the relevant SETA or alternatively, do further research on other institutions of learning that do offer this short course.

SETA also plays a critical role in providing employment opportunities for unemployed individuals.

South Africa has an alarming unemployment rate among its youth, with around 66% of young people not involved in education, training or work. Providing skills training to these youth will form part of the government's strategy to combat high youth unemployment.
