UCT Institute of Development and Labour Law (IDLL)

South Africa’s labour market remains incapable of addressing the country’s high levels of unemployment and reducing inequality and poverty. Globalisation and the integration of South Africa into the economy of sub-Saharan Africa complicate endeavours to address these problems. It is within this context that the work of IDLL is located.

IDLL is situated within the Faculty of Law of the University of Cape Town. Its members teach all the labour law-related offerings in the Faculty, and are engaged in, and the promotion of, research that is relevant to the IDLL’s objectives. As well as doctrinal research in the area of labour, employment and social security law, this research concerns the interface between development, labour and employment law and social policy in South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.

The Labour & Enterprise Policy Research Group (LEP) is an independently funded research group within the Institute that undertakes contract research, from a socio-legal perspective, on the above questions, and more specifically relating to the restructuring of employment, informalisation, inequality, the changing nature of the workplace, the future of collective bargaining, and decent work.

IDLL’s other activities include training and capacity building undertaken with various social partners, the co-convening of the popular Annual Labour Law Conference and the publication of a monograph and working papers series on matters emanating from its research endeavours.

FoodBev SETA’s function is to promote, facilitate and incentivise skills development in the food and beverages manufacturing sector.
FoodBev SETA is one of 23 sector education and training authorities (SETAs) across the economy mandated to put the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS) into practice.

The purpose of the SETAs is described in the Skills Development Act (SDA) which aims to:
- develop the skills of the South African workforce;
- improve the quality of life of workers and their prospects of work;
- improve productivity in the workplace and the competitiveness of employers; and
- promote self-employment.



The W&RSETA is a public entity which was established to address skills development through provision of quality learning within the Wholesale and Retail sector by implementing learnerships, disbursement of grants and monitoring of education and training. The W&RSETA aims to increase the level of investment in education and training in the sector and to improve the return on that investment. Our mission is to contribute to the socioeconomic development and growth of the country by enabling education and training of the highest quality in the wholesale and retail sector, to the benefit of employers, employees and learners respectively.


The Services Sector Education and Training Authority (SSETA) is one of the 21 SETAs re-licensed by the Minister of Higher Education and Training in 2010, for a period 2011 to 2016. The SSETA is responsible for skills development in the services sector. The services sector comprises of 160,000 member companies, and of the said number:

  • 28,000 are levy paying companies
  • 4,500 are medium and large companies
  • 23,500 are small companies
  • 132,000 are non-levy paying companies falling within the exemption threshold



Cathsseta, the Culture, Art, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Education and Training Authority, is the Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) established under the Skills Development Act (No 97 of 1998) [the Skills Act] for the Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Economic Sector.

A SETA’s main function is to contribute to the raising of skills – to bring skills to the employed, or those wanting to be employed, in their sector. They have to do this by ensuring that people learn skills that are needed by employers and communities. There is no value in training people if they cannot use the skills they have learnt. Training and skills development is not just for young people starting their first jobs though it is important for them too! The skills of people already in jobs must also be enhanced.

Training must be to agreed standards, within a national framework wherever possible. It is no good if someone is trained in one province if their qualifications are not recognised in another. It is not ideal for one employer to increase the skills of his or her staff if another employer does not recognise them. All training, wherever it is provided, should be subject to quality control and where appropriate be compared to the best international standards.
To achieve these objectives a SETA must

  • Develop a sector skills plan
  • Implement the sector skills plan
  • Develop and administer learnerships
  • Support the implementation of the National Qualifications Framework
  • Undertake quality assurance
  • Disburse levies collected from employers in their sector
  • Report to the Minister and to the South African Qualifications Authority.
