Dear loyal clients


Are you making the most of your Discretionary Grants? Are you paying SDL and not claiming it back? Can you afford to miss out on this additional Seta funding?

Speak to us about our FREE Discretionary Grant application service!

Thrive offers an SDF consulting service whereby we complete Discretionary Grant (DG) applications on your behalf, at no direct cost to you. The application is purely based on your organisational skills development requirements, your Seta and your company fit with Seta DG funding opportunities. DG applications are done on a risk-share basis and with no upfront cost to you.

Thrive will put a complete, accurate and sound application together for you, including alignment to:

  • your organisational SD and BEE requirements and budgets,
  • the National Skills Development Strategy,
  • your Seta’s Sector Skills Plan and Seta discretionary funding selection criteria, including their:
    • scarce and critical skills list,
    • OFO codes and
    • demographic requirements.

Should we find a suitable opportunity, we will explore and discuss the contents of the application with you, compile the DG application accordingly and request your final agreement and sign off. Should the application be successful we then charge a sliding scale risk-share amount.

Should you be interested, please feel free to chat to us at We look forward to chatting to you!

Services Seta Accreditation Expiring?

Does your Services Seta accreditation expire in March 2018?

If so, you will need to request a monitoring visit and show the assessment and certification learners in order to have this extended. Do not leave it too late! You may be at risk of losing your accreditation if you do not request this monitoring visit timeously. Fortunately, Thrive can assist you! Contact us at
