The South African Automotive Week is proud to announce the participation and partnership of merSETA at this year’s event.
MerSETA, the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector Education and Training Authority facilitates skills development in the following sub sectors:
- Metal and engineering
- Auto manufacturing
- Motor retail and component manufacturing
- Tyre manufacturing and plastics industries
- Together the five sub-sectors comprise approximately 44 000 companies, with a workforce of approximately 600 000
The merSETA plays a central role in making sure that the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS) is fulfilled. merSETA does not collect levies but instead receives collected levies from the Department of Higher Education and Training.
Seventy per cent of the levies are disbursed as grants and 10 per cent is kept for administration. merSETA does not train, instead it facilitates the process of training by paying grants, registering moderators and assessors, identifying scarce skills, accrediting training providers, monitoring the quality of training and implementing pronects to close the skills gap.
“merSETA facilitates skills development in the auto and manufacturing sectors. We support South African Automotive Week and welcome your engagement,” says merSETA CEO Dr. Raymond Patel.
