The Media Information and Communication Technology Sector Education and Training Authority (MICT SETA) welcomes the announcement of the Auditor General 2015 – 2016 audit outcomes which saw the SETA get a laudable unqualified audit report for ten (10) years in succession.

The MICT SETA has emerged with an unqualified audit report with no material findings, thereby completing another successful year of delivering on the skills development mandate. “The clean audit report confirms our commitment to our values of professionalism, ethics and accountability with a clear focus on achieving the NSDS III objectives and the continuous demonstration of good governance”, said Oupa Mopaki, Chief Executive Officer, MICT SETA.

The MICT SETA has performed consistently for the past ten (10) years, achieving all its annual performance targets and in most instances over achieving. The MICT SETA has in the year under review (2015 – 2016) managed to achieve all its strategic goals as articulated in the MICT SETA Strategic Plan Document 2015 – 2020 and the Annual Performance Plan 2015 – 2016. During the year under review 8044 leaners were trained and 4119 have successfully completed their learning programmes whilst others will complete in the current year.

“The announcement is encouraging for us, in partnership with our stakeholders in addressing the skills shortages in the sector and a collective achievement of the objectives of the annual performance is vital”, he added.

Despite the challenges stimulated by the changing global and national developments, as well as the adoption and use of the ICTs in the delivery of services by public, private and community sectors, the ICT’s has emerged as the biggest differentiator impacting on social economic aspects.

The MICT SETA has contributed towards the country’s transformation imperatives, spreading service provision to reach those areas not previously reached on implementing the best skills solution and accelerating quality skills towards an information savvy society.
