The Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA) was established under the Skills Development Act 97 of 1998 (the Skills Act) for the tourism, hospitality and sports economic sector.
CATHSSETA’s main function is to contribute to the raising of skills – to bring skills to the employed, or those wanting to be employed, in their sector. They achieve this by ensuring that people learn skills that are needed by employers and communities. There is no value in training people if they cannot use the skills they have learnt. Training and skills development is not just for young people starting out in the working world, though it is important for them, it is also there to enhance the skills of people who are already employed.
