Want a career in the fascinating and complex world of banking? BANKSETA issues funding based on scarce skills. Scarce skills are linked to qualifications. Study for a qualification that allows you to fill positions that are scarce.

BANKSETA Funding in 2017

In 2016 BANKSETA only funded 1740 interventions. In 2017 they will fund 3759 interventions. Included are bursaries for 7 people requiring funding for Industrial and Organisational Psychology

If you’re a potential learner you should know the following:

  1. Training providers will compete for funding to deliver these programmes.
  2. Programmes may or may not be available in your province. If they are not, ask about relocation stipends for learners who need to move.
  3. Ask about being placed on an official database so that your name can be made available to the service providers who are awarded the contracts.

Table below indicates the BANKSETA Learning Programme opportunities for 2017
