It is common for employers to cite misunderstandings of the Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) and the Annual Training Report (ATR) process as a reason for not submitting the WSP-ATR annually.
“The process can appear challenging but it is simple. The HWSETA has several support mechanisms in place to assist employers with the submission of their WSP-ATR,” said Mr Mlulamisi Mhlanga, WSP Manager for the HWSETA. “One of the most helpful mechanisms are the annual WSP-ATR workshops that assist employers in developing an understanding of the automated submission process and explains all the documentation required for a valid submission.”
In January and February 2019, the HWSETA will host a series of workshops across the country to assist employers in preparing their WSP-ATR submissions in time for the 30 April 2019 deadline.
The workshops are targeted at stakeholders who are unfamiliar with the submission requirements. WSP-ATR submission not only enables SDL contributors to access Mandatory Grant Funding, but also qualifies the employer to apply for Discretional Grant Funding from the HWSETA.
It is a key mandate of the HWSETA to develop a skilled workforce in the Health and Social Development sectors of South Africa.
Through the WSP-ATR submission the HWSETA is able to develop the sector skills plan (SSP), analyse how companies are training and developing their workforce as well as providing workplace learning opportunities for unemployed persons, and this is what results in a more skilled South African workforce as a whole.
