The Agricultural Sector Education Training Authority (SETA), to be known as AgriSETA, is set to become a diverse and fairly complex organisation that handles not only agriculture, but all food and beverage and forestry activities.
AgriSETA stands for Agricultural Sector Education and Training Authority. It is a government-funded organization that aims to improve the skills and knowledge of people working in the agricultural sector in South Africa. AgriSETA plays an important role in promoting education and training opportunities in the agricultural industry and ensuring that the workforce has the skills needed to keep the sector thriving.
There are several benefits to the work that AgriSETA does, which can be broken down into three key areas: benefits for individuals, benefits for the agricultural sector, and benefits for South Africa as a whole.
