The merSETA encompasses Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services.


  The various industry sectors are covered by five chambers within the merSETA:

Metal and engineering

Auto manufacturing

Motor retail and component manufacturing

Tyre manufacturing

Plastics industries



Together the five sub-sectors comprise approximately 44000 companies, with a workforce of approximately 600 000. The total levy income is approximately 600 million rands.

The merSETA like all other SETAs play a central role in making sure that the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS) is fulfilled. MerSETA does not collect levies but instead receives collected levies from the Department of Higher Education and Training. Seventy percent of the levies are disbursed as grants and 10% is kept for administration. merSETA does not train, instead it facilitates the process of training by paying grants, registering moderators and assessors, identifying scarce skills, accrediting providers, monitoring the quality of training and implementing projects to close the skills gap.


Leaders in closing the skills gap



To increase access to high quality and relevant skills development and training opportunities in order to reduce inequalities and unemployment and to promote employability and participation in the economy.
