Welcome to the merSETA. The merSETA is one of the 21 Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs). Established to promote skills development in terms of the Skills Development Act of 1998 (as amended), the 21 SETAs broadly reflect different sectors of the South African economy. The merSETA encompasses Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services.

The merSETA opened a Discretionary Grant Window in November 2021. Extensions were effected thereafter which resulted in the Window closing on 30 April 2022. There were reasons for the extensions, the critical one being that a range of recommended changes made by external and internal auditors such as the Auditor General South Africa on improving internal controls and risk management had to be developed and implemented. These have now been finalised. The processing of discretionary grant applications is expected to begin before the end of July 2022 and to be completed by the end of August 2022. merSETA shall continue to communicate with applicants as the process unfolds.
