Terms and Conditions
- According to SETA and NAMB regulations, no learner agreement (practical time worked) may take place beyond South African borders.
- The relevant SETA and NAMB workplace approval for the particular trade is a prerequisite to register a learner agreement.
- A learner’s practical time worked at an employer will only be countable for the registration of a NAMB/SETA learner agreement, if the relevant SETA and NAMB workplace approval is intact.
- Our training provider is a merSETA accredited training provider. For that reason the training provider/Ajani has legislative jurisdiction based on the Department of Higher Education and Training, to register SETA learner agreements of employers that fall under the scope of merSETA, Foodbevseta, Agriseta, TETA and W&R (SETAs that have a MOU towards the merSETA).
The training provider has recently applied for CETA and EWSETA accreditation and will soon be able to place students at these SETA employers as well.
- The merSETA allows 6 months backdating of a learner agreement. This may differ from SETA to SETA.
If a learner works at an employer who has applied for the required SETA and NAMB workplace approval, should the start date of the contract only be determined once the approval has been issued. The contract should also only be backdated once the workplace has been approved.
- If a student declines a job offer at an employer/interview arranged by Ajani, the student must find his own SETA and NAMB approved employer. Ajani will still facilitate the registration of the NAMB/SETA learner agreement and help organise the trade test, if the employer is correctly SETA and NAMB approved.
- If a student is unsuccessful in an interview arranged by Ajani, Ajani will try and source another available SETA and NAMB approved employer. If the student was unsuccessful 3 times, the student must find his own SETA and NAMB approved employer. Ajani will still facilitate the registration of the NAMB/SETA learner agreement and help organise the trade test, if the employer is correctly SETA and NAMB approved.
- If a learner is let go of by an employer/resigns from an employer provided by Ajani, the student will not be placed by Ajani again, or help with the agreement registration. The student will be held responsible for any contractual / practical time issues that may resonate from this. The student will also be responsible for the transfer of agreement, where applicable.
- If a learner moves to another SETA and NAMB approved employer, the learner is responsible for transferring the agreement. A SETA learner agreement can only be transferred within the same SETA. For e.g. if a learner worked at a merSETA approved employer, he can only be transferred to another merSETA approved employer for his practical time at employer A to count as part of his practical time. A learner may not start working at Employer B if the transfer hasn’t been registered at the relevant SETA. Ajani must be notified of such transfer.
- If a student hasn’t got his N2-certificate/complete N2-results after completing his/her institutional training at the college, Ajani cannot place the student. It is the student’s responsibility to contact Ajani once he is in possession of his complete N2.
- A N2-certificate / complete N2-results is a prerequisite to be placed. If a student find his own employer, but doesn’t have his/her complete N2, the Ajani Exemption Form and Exemption Own Employer and SETA/NAMB approval form must be signed. Ajani/Training Provider will not be held responsible for any complications that may originate from such learner agreement.
- Should a student find his own employer, forfeiting to notify Ajani, Ajani will not be held responsible for a NAMB/SETA learner agreement not being registered, nor any contractual / practical time worked complications that may occur from this decision.
- The SETA only issues a trade test date upon receipt of proof of payment and if the submitted documents are in order.
- A student has 3 attempts to prove competent. There must be at least one month’s period between attempts.
- The NAMB and QCTO are South Africa’s governing bodies above all 23 SETAs in South Africa and is responsible for the issuing of Red Seal certificates . Ajani has no control over the time duration before Red Seals are issued. The average time is 0 – 6 months.
- Ajani plays a supportive role in following up with regards to the issuing of certificates from NAMB and the SETA.
- If an employer arranged a learner’s trade test and/or paid for it, the learner need to enquire at the particular employer with regards to the issuing of his/her Red Seal.
- If Ajani arranged the trade test date, the Red Seal will either be posted directly by the SETA to the learner or it will be provided to Ajani by the SETA for the learner to come and collect.
