The paper argues that significant progress has been achieved by SETAs and the Skills Development system. But that important challenges have emerged in this review with regard to the level of development of SETAs, the numerous complexities that persist in respect of implementation, effectiveness and efficiency, the shortcomings in the functioning of the training market, the underdeveloped capacity and functioning of the monitoring and evaluations systems, the lack of effective management information systems, the effectiveness of quality assurance mechanisms in the system all combine to suggest that the SETAs and the Skills Development system are still at a critical stage of institutionalisation.
