Until the engine and retail subsectors are transferred to W-RSETA, they report to MerSETA, located in central Johannesburg, Gauteng. The proposals should be communicated by 31 March 2021 to Mxolisi Maphakela, to email@example.com W-RSETA participants, that W-RSETA grant additional scholarships for unemployed students enrolled in apprenticeship institutions who received scholarships during the COVID-19 blockade and whose training period was extended as a result of the blockade. Only companies that continued to pay scholarships during the block if the training did not take place and then extended the learning time with the number of months lost due to the blockage can apply for the grant. Applications are expected to be submitted by January 29, 2021. While W-RSETA facilitates the recruitment and implementation of apprenticeships, SETA is quick to remind employers, service providers and training providers that it is their responsibility to recruit learners. The Wholesale and Retail Education and Training Authority (W-RSETA) is a recognized leader in the SETAs currently operating in South Africa. They have had great success in implementing the national skills development strategy and are proud of their role in promoting the development of relevant skills in the large wholesale and retail sector and its many sub-sectors. In May 2001, the W-RSETA ETQA (Education and Training Qualifications Authority) was accredited by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) to facilitate its role in ensuring quality education in the wholesale and retail trade. In November 2009, the government announced that setAs will not be recertified in March 2010, as originally planned, but that the entire seta landscape would be redefined.
While W-RSETA will remain intact when the new landscape enters the game in March 2011, it will transfer the automotive and gasoline retail subsectors of the manufacture, Engineering and Related Services SETA, MerSETA. Learners are work-based education and training programmes, which are linked to qualifications registered with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) in the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). These learners are composed of both theory and practical experience. Those in this vital sector recognized the need to create a board of directors to lead the SETA and, after consultation with employers and workers, as well as in advertising in national newspapers, its board of directors, consisting of six workers` representatives and six employer representatives, was properly set up. The latest edition of the WholeSay newsletter for 2020 includes the W-RSETA 2020 General Assembly and a SupaTrade Spar Learners Closing Ceremony.
