What is a Skills Development Facilitator (SDF)?

A Skills Development Facilitator is a person whom is in charge of a company’s skills related activities.

Which companies should appoint an SDF?

As per the Skills Development Levies Act, all employers of organisations that are registered for skills development levy purposes with SARS have to appoint an SDF who must co-ordinate all skills related activities of an organisation.

Does an SDF need to be registered?

A Skills Development Facilitator must be registered with the relevant SETA. The SDF can perform these duties for more than one employer, but must be registered for every employer at the same or at a different SETA. Although SDF’s are not required to have any formal qualifications to register, organisations will normally appoint a SDF who has an ETD qualification.
