• to implement the objectives of the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS III); and

• to ensure that people obtain the critical or scarce skills that are needed to build the capacity of the sector to become economically sustainable and globally competitive and give financial support in the terms of bursaries study loans and study grants.

The FP&M Sector SETA consists of thirteen sub-sectors namely clothing, footwear, forestry, furniture, general goods, leather, packaging, print media, printing, publishing, pulp and paper, textiles and wood products sectors. Although classified individually, the sub-sectors are closely integrated. Together they create tremendous value in the lives of consumers by converting lumber, pulp, natural or synthetic fibres, animal skins/hides into finished products such as furniture, clothing, shoes, protective equipment, paper and paperboard, printed matter (books, magazines and newspapers), industrial fabrics and high-tech applications in many different industries (automotive, health, mining and building to name a few.
