Skills Development Act, 1998 (Act No. 97 of 1998)


Constitution of the Transport Education and Training Authority (TETA)



This Constitution seeks to give effect to the spirit of transformation that is embodied in the Skills Development Act, 1998 (Act No. 97 of 1998) read together with the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA), 1999 (Act No, 1 of 1999), as amended and the Treasury Regulations (TR), while at the same time recognising the unique requirements of the diverse sub-sectors that make up the Transport Sector.


As per the requirements of the PFMA, as amended, the provisions of this Act will take preference over the TETA Constitution, where the Constitution is in conflict with the PFMA and its regulations.


The signatories to this Constitution, and the parties represented by them, acknowledge that the ultimate purpose of the Constitution is threefold:

To create an environment in which all the people employed - or seeking employment in the Transport Sector, have access to relevant learning opportunities of a pre-determined standard.
To contribute to the economic growth of the Sector through the development of skilled human resources.
To ensure that effective financial stewardship and adequate systems of good governance and risk management are in place.


An institutional framework is now created to implement national, sector and workplace education and training initiatives in order to develop the skills and knowledge of the people in the Transport Sector, and to manage this function in a sound and transparent manner, giving effect to the spirit and intention of the Skills Development Act, 1998 (Act No. 97 of 1998), the Skills Development Levies Act, 1999, (Act No. 9 of 1999), Employment Equity Act, 1998 (Act No. 55 of t998), the Labour Relations Act, 1995 (Act No. 66 of 19951, the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, 1997 (Act No. 75 of 1997) and any other relevant legislation having an impact on people at work.
