6th July 2018 – The CETA Accounting Authority and Management conducted a discretionary grant workshop with the object of encouraging entities to apply for discretionary grant 2018, communicate the key strategic areas of the CETA as well as to conduct comprehensive demonstration of how the online system works.

“At present only 30 percent of learners who enrol in varsity complete what they enrolled for and that comes with the learners facing different challenges such as work placement and then they later face unemployment. It cannot be that we are training and educating young people for unemployment.

CETA stakeholders are the vehicle to drive employment and entrepreneurship amongst young people. “Said Ms Vangile Manzini – CETA Accounting Authority member.

The Accounting Authority of the CETA wants to know the impact that the training has on the lives of the learners. Post learners having gone through various learning pathways CETA and stakeholders need to concern themselves with the question ‘where are the learners now’ in order to gage the impact of training.

The online system is user friendly and the CETA offers continued support during the application process as well as in the implementation thereof.

Limpopo stakeholders welcomed the new online system and thanked the CETA for the job well done.

The CETA is prioritising quality skills in the Limpopo Province, the organisation is supplementing the skills development centre built in University of Venda with simulation structures. A laboratory is also underway in the same Province.

We encourage stakeholders to apply, the applications must not be left for the 20th of July. Said Mr Robert Semenya.
