The Education, Training and Development Practices - Sector Education and Training Authority (ETDP SETA) was established in March 2000 in terms of the Skills Development Act (No. 97 of 1998) (as amended).
The SETA is mandated to promote and facilitate the delivery of education, training and development in order to enhance the skills profile of the Education, Training and Development (ETD) sector and contribute to the creation of employment opportunities especially for those previously disadvantaged.
