Firstly, anyone who understand the Seta Process must realise it is fundamentally flawed.
No business should be totally responsible for educating their workers, unless it is an apprenticeship - but this is usually done with intervention from State. The duty of education, should be state intervention, educators and the workers themselves.

It is about time that we as South Africans - and Africans as such - realise that we are part of the global economy, where skills are being transferred frequently from one country to the next.Africans must immediately stop the mentality that everyone not of your specific culture and language, is seen as an alien and a threat

I am afraid to burst anyone’s bubble, however the seta’s are already doing toooo little. To have a course accredited involves far too much red tape.

We do not need to start again. We need to start at the top and systematically set NATIONAL standards to skill those SETAs in whose hands all aspects of provider evaluation, learning provision, and learner assessments rest.

Labour laws are being portrayed as being one sided and all in favour of the employee.Balancing the rights and obligations of employers and employees.

Do not know if I should say "YES!" or "Oh no!"!!! We are an NPO organization in the process of accreditation with HWSETA. As everyone, who walked this road, will know, it is a long and painful process.

In my opinion, having had experience with the Services Seta,Ceta, Chieta and Merseta, as well as the Department of Labour, it is the person who is the visionary and who leads the team that makes the difference.

Using the example of a swinging coo-coo clock it always swing near the middle. The Union: the unions when they used to run management they push the indicator way back to the far left, and management use the push it way back to the right. There are no half way about the business of things, they?d figured one of them should definitely get the benefit of it.

Thank you for your invitation to respond to "the idea embodied in the legislation of employers and employees in the sector coming together to run their own training initiatives, in their own best interests, has failed."
I speak as a service provider who has been involved for several years in provider and assessor accredition processes.

I am a training facilitator training assessors, moderators, evidence collection facilitators "coach? and "mentor? courses, from what I have experienced especially with learnerships is that they are failing horribly.
