AGRISETA Funding in 2017

This post lists AGRISETA funded opportunities in 2017 and compares them with those offered in 2016. Awesome news is that the number of interventions has increased.

Careers in Agriculture

If you’re a potential learner you should know the following:

  1. Training providers will compete for funding to deliver these programmes.
  2. Programmes may or may not be available in your province. If they are not, ask about relocation stipends for learners who need to move.
  3. Ask about being placed on an official database so that your name can be made available to the service providers who are awarded the contracts.

Table below indicates the  AgriSETA Learning Programme opportunities for 2017

  4. hi Leonie… my name is Stanley… I am Reverend in an apostolic church and a communuty development officer in my area. we have unemployed youth and adults in our community whom we are trying to upskill to have some skills. Can you kindly help us enlisting them into learnership programmes within your scope of operations in the scarces skill programmes that Agriseta…. perhaps you can also try to identify service providers which you can reccommed around Gaiuteng….. specififically Johannesburg.

    1. Hi Stanley
      Unfortunately I don’t have the resources available to assist you fairly. I recommend approaching AGRISETA and all the other SETAs directly and request that they fund local interventions in the community.
