Welcome to the HWSETA

Skills development is a national priority for South Africa and meeting the country’s skills needs requires collaboration between numerous public and government entities, educational institutions, training providers, as well as private organisations, no matter how big or small.


South Africa’s economy is divided into functional sectors and each of these sectors is represented by one of 21 Sector Education Training Authorities (SETAs). The Health and Welfare Sector Education and Training Authority (HWSETA) is responsible for the education, training and skills development requirements of the health, social development and veterinary sectors.


WSP/ATR Submission Deadline

To qualify for mandatory and/or discretionary grant funding requires that stakeholders of the HWSETA submit their 2016/2017 Annual Training Report (ATR), as well as their 2017/2018 Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) by no later than 30 April 2017. This is a process that is completed online and stakeholders can access the site by clicking on the ‘WSP ATR submission 2017/18’ tab under the ‘Stakeholder Zone’ to the left of this message. 

Please note that this functionality is available to stakeholders currently.

The deadline to apply for an extension to make a late submission is 15 March 2017. No requests for extensions can be considered after this time as the approval of an extension has to be granted by the HWSETA Board and extensions may only be granted until 31 May 2017.
