In 1998 the Skills Development Act No.97 was signed into law. This Act formally established Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETA) and in particular, the Transport Education and Training Authority (TETA). TETA is made up of a number of Chambers, the Forwarding & Clearing Chamber being one of these. Other Chambers include Rail, Road and Maritime. There is no separate chamber for Supply Chain Management.

The South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) Act of 1995 provides for a National Qualifications Framework. Resulting from this Act industry is required to register qualifications and unit standards with the SAQA. Details of these can be obtained from the SAQA website but they are listed below with reference numbers for convenience. You will find that the use of reference numbers facilitates access.

The Skills Development Act requires employers to pay a skills development levy to the TETA, most of which can be claimed back, provided proper training takes place, and certain procedures are followed such as the completion of Work-based Skills Plans and the submission of reports. There are mandatory grants which the TETA must pay to levy-paying companies who complete these requirements. There are also discretionary grants available.

A portion of training spend must be based on registered unit standards and the engagement of accredited training providers. TETA has established a learnership programme for the industry and created a special system to assist Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMME’s). The forwarding and clearing fraternity is fortunate in having the F&C Chamber to look after their needs and more information on its contribution to members can be obtained from contact 011 455 1726
