Opening of Regional Offices
 The Department of Higher Education and Training directed us to partner
with FET Colleges when opening our Regional Offices
 SASSETA has been directed to KZN to partner with Amajuba FET College,
Elangeni FET College and Ethekwini FET College
 Progress has been achieved in this regard in that all the 3 Colleges have
been visited but
 Only Ethekwini FET College could accommodate SASSETA in KZN
 SASSETA will be using Etekwini FET’s free office space at no
charge except for water and electricity
 The intended date for the launch of the Office was February 2013
but has since been delayed by the approval processes of
Regional Structure.

Implications for planning
Focus on developing the capacity of training units within its constituent
departments
When the needs of sub-sectors are understood, appropriate interventions must be
identified to address those needs. A range of interventions should be considered
and the most effective approach agreed.
There are a number of changes anticipated across various sub-sectors (especially
legislative) and the SETA should be proactive in addressing skills needs brought
about by such changes
Relevance and quality of training by providers should be enforced
Greater focus on driving skills development through partnerships with public FET
and HET providers. Capacity of both should be improved to address the skills
pipeline
Effective monitoring of SASSETA funded programmes. The SASSETA must know
which organizations and sub-sectors are engaging in skills development, which
learners are participating, whether the training is addressing skills and has a
positive impact
24
Strategic themes
Labour Market Information
A need for comprehensive information about demand & supply of skills
Strengthening HRD Units
Supporting constituent members to develop HRD capacity
Retention of Skills
Supporting constituent public sector members with mechanisms to retain talent
Improved Supply
Partnerships FET & HET institutions to improve their capacity and programme
relevance
Expanded Workplace Provision
More opportunities for learning & turning public service into a training space
Monitoring & Evaluation
Measuring impact of skills development interventions & obtaining key learnings
for improvement
