The term WSP (Workplace Skills Plan) is used to describe the training and skills development plan of a business, as envisaged in the Skills Development Act of 1998. The WSP, accompanied by the Pivotal Plan and Annual Training Report, will be approved by the relevant SETA with which the business must register.
Although it is not compulsory by law for businesses to submit a WSP and Pivotal Report, there are certain adverse consequences of not submitting such. These consequences include, but are not limited to the following:
The WSPs must be submitted before the end of April 2017. Submissions are done online and no late submissions shall be accepted. Experience has shown that online submissions are somewhat burdensome because of possible downtime of the system and unavailability of a stable, fast internet connection. However, there are still about two weeks left for submitting WSPs and business are urged to make the best use of this time to become compliant.
SERR Synergy assist businesses with the completion and submission of an annual Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) and Pivotal Plan as well as an annual Training Report. We act as a Skills Development Facilitator (SDF) for your business.
