SETA Internships

SETA internships are provided by 21 different government organisations. SETA stands for Sector Education and Training Authority. They were initiated from the Skills Development Act in 1998 with the goal of developing a series of sector skills plans within the defined framework of the National Skills Development Agency.

What are SETA Internships?

SETA Internships have been designed to provide University and FET College graduates with an opportunity to extend their academic qualifications through structured workplace exposure and specialised training. Participants are placed on a full-time basis for a period of eight to twelve months in stakeholder companies and government organisations, the purpose of which is to provide the learner with work experience that builds on the qualification.

The organisations use internships to fast-track high-level skills, to offer needed work experience to unemployed graduates and empower graduates with practical knowledge commensurate with their qualifications.

Most SETA internships focus on practical training; each employer will determine the duration and content of the internship, so they can vary greatly, and the specific outcomes are not defined or regulated as in the case of Learnerships. Internships are ideal for graduates or those with tertiary qualifications but who lack experience. The primary benefit for the graduate learner includes obtaining “real world” workplace experience.
