The Construction Education and Training Authority (CETA) is one of the SETAs that have been called upon by the Department of Labour (DoL) to make funds available for Construction Sector employees who are facing the possibility of being retrenched. The aim of the scheme is to assist the Construction Employers facing financial distress.
The Training Layoff Scheme is a DoL initiative intended to cushion the Sub-Prime debacle that has had negative implications for South African employees facing job losses. The purpose of the Training Layoff Scheme is to provide portable skills during this economic distress period to enable employee ease of re-entry into the economy when the construction sector recovers. CETA wishes to take this opportunity to assist in minimising the impact of the economic crisis on the Construction Sector through Skills Development Initiatives as stipulated by DoL.
CETA acknowledges that the appropriate implementation of the Training Layoff Scheme is dependent on constituent employers being familiar with the scheme and the programmes that CETA has to offer as recourse to job loss.
Below are PDF documents that clearly state CETA programmes for the realisation of the Training Layoff Scheme: (Please note that CETA is not imposing but open to the suggestions as the the programmes are based on the needs of the industry)
