Skills Development Facilitation's (SDF Services)

SDF Services

Siyaya Skills Institute’s core function within its SDF Outsourcing department is the administration and planning of skills development within our clients’ organization. Our team is sensitive to the strategic objectives laid down by our customers while providing them with between 50 – 350% return on the money they choose to invest, dependant on their level of participation.

The primary responsibility of Siyaya’s SDF Outsourcing department is to ensure that clients record training expenses (both internal and external) correctly and submit the necessary documentation in order to be reimbursed Mandatory Grant by their SETA. We have two services which cater for business. The first is for clients who merely want the documentation compiled and submitted correctly the other is a turnkey service where we manage the entire process.

As it is a legislated requirement that employers of 50 or more persons constitute a fairly representative Workplace Training Committee, Siyaya will ensure that these meetings occur and all relevant record keeping is kept – requirements needed in Skills Development Monitoring and Auditing visits.
