Getting the Most Out of the Skills Development and Skills Levies Act

The purpose of the Skills Development Act of 1998 is to provide an institutional framework to devise and implement national, sector and workplace strategies to develop and improve the skills of the South African workforce, together with the relevant Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETA). Meanwhile, the Skills Development Levies Act of 1999 is aimed at providing the promotion of a skills development levy.


Human capital management solutions provider Manpower South Africa notes that businesses can benefit from these acts, in turn benefitting the South African economy. Managing Director Lyndy van den Barselaar says: “The Skills Development Act looks at integrating those strategies within the National Qualifications Framework contemplated in the South African Qualifications Authority Act of 1995; to provide for learnerships that lead to recognised occupational qualifications; to provide for the financing of skills development by means of a levy-grant scheme and a National Skills Fund; to provide for and regulate employment services; and to provide for matters connected to this.”
