GTA(SA) held a number of discussions with DFEEST regarding Skills for All funding which came in to effect on 1 July 2012. Some of the topics include the ability to run institutionalised trade training and the increase and/or restriction of qualifications on the Funded Training List. GTA(SA) continues to represent its members by attending briefings and providing input to the Skills for All agenda. This information has then been provided to the membership. Face to face meetings for members have been arranged from key DFEEST personnel to keep members up to date with Skills for All. The association distributes Skills for All ebulletins as they are released.
