South Africa’s biggest and most valuable asset is our people. Unfortunately we come from a history of not investing in untapped wealth. The Skills Development Act of was written as a means of ensuring that companies start questioning their people development strategies and implementation. This was done through the skills development levies that most companies pay to their Seta (Sector education and training authority) and the skills development claim process.
Companies will receive a grant from this levy if they engage with the Seta processes - this includes the training plan, consultation and training report on a yearly basis. It's not as complicated as you may think....
Kaizen and Associates offers Skills Development services, ensuring compliance to legislation and SETA grant disbursement. The sensible integration of all your training inputs into one training and development plan ensures that people development strategies are integral to your company's overall business and transformation imperatives. We assist you in making business sense of the Skills Development act - in this way it becomes strategically meaningful and not just a paper-based exercise.
You can outsource all functions with regards to Skills Development to Kaizen and Associates or we can only assist you in completing your annual WSP&ART.
