New AgriSETA Accreditation and Qualifications
We believe that every South African youth deserves an opportunity to learn and improve their knowledge in the area that they are passionate about.
The more accreditations we have and the more qualifications we offer, the more people we can empower to develop their interests and talents in a specific area.
AgriSETA creates and promotes opportunities for social, economic and employment growth for agri-enterprises through relevant, quality and accessible education, training and development in both primary and secondary agriculture, in conjunction with other stakeholders in agriculture.
One of SETA’s responsibilities and primary functions is to simplify skills development by creating learning programs such as learnerships, skills programs, internships and some other strategic learning initiatives. They bridge the gap between formal education, training systems and the workplace by simplifying learning programs and distribution of funding to enable accredited training institutions to deliver the training and build skills-sets required by industries.
We are excited to announce that we offer a variety of BEE aligned agriSETA learnerships and that we are official agriSETA training providers.
