Skills development is a national priority for South Africa and meeting the countryís 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 Africaís 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.
Provincial Capacity Building Workshops
The HWSETA will be conducting provincial stakeholder capacity workshops and would like to invite health and social development stakeholders, HWSETA Skills Development Providers (SDPs) and other prospective providers to attend. The workshops will focus on current, as well as new policies, guidelines and processes. An added advantage to attending these workshops will be realised in that they will assist in capacitating sector stakeholders, already accredited SDPs and SDPs who are planning to obtain accreditation or programme approval with the HWSETA.
