CETA: Submission for Project Proposals

Throughout 2009, Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal encouraged members who are Skills Development Levy-payers to submit a Work Place Skills Plan. The Association assisted by having plans drawn up by our agency on behalf of members, at no charge. We were later happy to report that 37 of our members had received R221 350.80 in mandatory grants.

The follow up process to this has now arrived with CETA calling for Submission for Project Proposals. This is essentially a discretionary grant and whom the grants are awarded to, will be decided upon by the CETA Project Evaluation and Monitoring Committee on completion of an evaluation process.

In laymen’s terms if you have submitted your workplace skills plan, you can now request additional funding for supplementary training. Association Training Manager Victor Smith informs us that it is important to note, that should your funding request be granted, monies are paid directly into the account of the training provider on proof of training.

We have placed a “Call for Submission of Project Proposals” document on as a PDF Download, and notify that contrary to what the document says, the project proposal template is not yet available on CETA website. CETA have however informed us that they expect to have it up in the next couple of days.
