NSDS III- GOAL 4.2: “Increasing access to occupationally directed programmes
NSDS Outcome 4.2.3: “High Level national scarce skills needs are being addressed by work ready graduates from higher education institution”

Historically, learners from technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges have struggled to find employment at the end of their studies.

However, with the Department of Higher Education and Training’s renewed focus on the promotion TVET colleges and the qualifications they offer, there is a drive to increase the number of artisans in the country.

These artisans will need work place experience as part of their training.

The SETAs are therefore required to assist in placing learners with employer for this component of their training.

SETAs place learners who are registered with TVET colleges and who require internships to complete their training with employers.

They also place unemployed graduates who have completed their qualification and are not employed to due to lack of work experience.
