About the Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (CHIETA)

CHIETA, a trusted partner in skills development and training for the chemical sector.

CHIETA is a statutory body established by the Skills Development Act of 1998, to facilitate skills development in the chemical and manufacturing industries and to ensure that skills needs are identified and addressed through various training initiatives. Around 70 % of Skills development levies obtained from the chemical industry is disbursed back to member companies via mandatory, strategic and discretionary grants.

CHIETA funds industry for the various occupational programs, certain programs that reside within the TVET sector and higher education. In this regards we are guided by our Sector Skills Plan that is a well-researched document that lists the hard to fill skills/hard to fill positions within our sector.

CHIETA in collaboration with the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) is currently responsible for the design and development of occupational qualifications and trades, quality assurance, accreditation, monitoring as well as certification of competent learners. Our financial performance has indeed been outstanding consistently achieving unqualified/clean audited opinions from the Auditor General of South Africa.

Giving industry the training it needs
CHIETA is committed to a demand-driven, industry-led approach to scarce skills related and occupationally directed training. Through continuous research and skills needs analysis, our SETA supports training and creates employment opportunities based on current and future skills needs. Our interventions ensure that the chemical industry is adequately supported for skills required in readiness for the 4th Industrial Revolution.
