START THE PROCESS NOW WITH TRANSCEND
As of the 1st of April 2019, most SETAs require that companies submit the letter of intent two (2) months prior to the intended commencement of the learnership. If approved, a letter of acknowledgment will be granted by the SETA that prescribes the commencement date of the learnership.
For example, if you have a December year-end and are still to onboard new learners you should be starting this process NOW!
What is a letter of intent? A letter of intent is an application lodged with your SETA to implement learnerships. Prior to this update, a letter of intent could be submitted at any time before the commencement of the learnership. And the start date of the learnership could have be set by your company.
