Case Studies

Projects undertaken can be broadly split into three main categories

1. Commercial & Land Reform farms

These farms are going concerns in the Primary Agricultural sector, where a broader spectrum of skills is needed in either plant or animal production, with the inclusion of accredited learnerships and skills programs.

2. Commodity organisations

These organisations are bodies that represent specific agricultural commodity products, such as deciduous fruit, or dried fruit. The Agri SETA supports these organisations with funding to train learners in their sectors. Training is credit based and covers the total value chain from working the land, to accessing markets.

3. Government programs

These grant-based initiatives subsidise emerging farmers in either co-operatives or companies. Programs integrate training and development into the broad business plan. Grants are made available through, inter alia: • Agri SETA • The Jobs Fund • Productivity SA • National Rural Youth Service Corps (NARYSEC) • National Skills Fund (NSF) • Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA)
