SDF IN CONTEXT
The Skills Development Levies Act and The Skills Development Act are especially relevant to SDF services as they provide a framework for organisations to develop and improve employee skills.
Organisations and employers that are registered with SARS for PAYE and have an annual payroll of over R 500 000 or more than 50 employees, must pay skills levies.
Organisations need a Skills Development Facilitator (SDF) to analyse, plan, implement, and report on all training activities in an organisation. They also develop and monitor personal development plans for each employee, draw up Workplace Skills Plans (WSPs) and are responsible for SETA related duties for the organisation.
