WELCOME TO THE FP&M SETA

The Fibre Processing and Manufacturing (FP&M) SETA was established by the Honourable Minister of Higher Education and Training on 1 April 2011 after government took a decision to cluster sectors in order to strengthen value-chain linkages between related industries.

The FP&M SETA consist of 13 sub-sectors namely the clothing, footwear, forestry, furniture, general goods, leather, packaging, printing, print media, 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 paper board, printing (books, magazines, etc), industrial fabrics and extending into high-tech applications in many different industries (automotive, health and building construction to name a few). If you think about it, you can't go through a day without using one or more of the products manufactured in the fibre processing and manufacturing sector.

Skills & Career Summit 2018 postponement

The FP&M SETA Skills Career & Development Summit Expo 2018 has been moved from 28 & 29 August to 29 & 30 October 2018 at Gallagher Convention Centre in order to align it more with the learners academic schedules. The postponement could also facilitate greater government involvement, which we feel will be to the benefit of everyone in attendance at the Summit.

The summit will be providing different funding opportunities and learnerships, as funding is one of the obstacles that many young people face when it comes to higher learning, education and training. A series of Focus sessions in partnership with government and the private sector will be hosted; giving these young people a platform to interact with established individuals. This is the perfect opportunity for colleges, companies and business schools to, not only market their brands but, also to showcase what they offer in terms of learnerships, internships and bursary funding to an audience of 800 school learners.

Date: 29 & 30 October 2018
Venue: Gallagher Convention Centre


For more information about marketing opportunities or attending the event, please contact Beverley Stone on 021 681 7000 or beverley@capemedia.co.za
