Discretionary SETA grants funding windows open

Discretionary SETA grants funding windows open

Dear employer

All companies who submitted their Workplace Skills Plan for the 2020 year, prior to the April deadline, are eligible to apply for discretionary funding at their respective SETAs.

Discretionary funding is additional, merit based funding allocated at the discretion of the SETA.

The benefits of a successful discretionary grant program include:

  • BBBEE - all funding received and spent on training can be claimed as ‘skills development spend’ on the BBBEE scorecard.
  • Staff development – receive funding for SETA programmes that address specific scarce skills in your industry.  
  • Interns or Learners – acquire additional resources through internships or learnerships funded by the SETA.
  • Apprentices - access funding to train artisans.


  • BANK SETA - closing 31 May 2019
  • HWSETA - closing 31 May 2019
  • INSETA - closing 14 June 2019
  • MICT SETA - always open (submit a letter of intent to apply).

We will inform members in other sectors when their discretionary funding windows have been opened.
