Fasset Strategy Implementation
November 2012
This application includes a plan of training for the upcoming year and a
report of training for the previous year.
• Either 40% or 50% of the SDL, paid quarterly
• Two formats: <50 and >50
• MS Excel for employers >50
• May include all training, including short courses
• No discretionary criteria
• All population groups, genders etc... may be included in the application
• Cost of training not linked to payout amount

Pivotal Grant – Fasset Definition
Fasset Strategy Implementation
November 2012
Fasset defines the Pivotal Grant as follows:
• MG dropped to 40% with 10% of the SDL designated as a PG, as per NSDS III
• Still being debated
• Not linked to Mandatory Grant, separate grant
• Release date of regulations? Due date?
• Professional, vocational, technical and academic (PIVOTAL)
• Programmes which provide a full occupationally‐directed qualification
• Education and Training applied for must be formal (Fasset definition):
− Qualifications
− Learnerships
− Internships
Pivotal Grant – Fasset Definition continued
Fasset Strategy Implementation
November 2012
• Others: professional placements, work‐integrated learning, apprenticeships, skills
programmes, and work experience placements
• Grant is conceptually similar to the MG, which does not allow for the application
of discretion
• PG is strategic in that it allows for Pivotal Programmes only, whereas Mandatory
Grant may include any training e.g. short courses
Pivotal Grant continued
Fasset Strategy Implementation
November 2012
• Such courses will normally begin in a college or university and would include
supervised practical learning in a workplace as part of their requirement
• In some cases start in the workplace and then move to college or university
• Some PIVOTAL courses can be offered by arrangement between a SETA, an
educational institution, an employer and a learner
• Fundamental to the successful implementation of PIVOTAL programmes will be a
model of cooperation between a SETA, a higher or further education and training
institution and an employer
• This will help ensure responsive curricula and courses
Draft Pivotal Grant Criteria
Fasset Strategy Implementation
• Both registered and completed learnerships and internships
• Completed qualifications only
• Accredited and quality-assured training providers, not short courses
• All skills, not only scarce skills
• Not gender or population group-specific
• For employed or unemployed people?
• 120 credits or 1-year course (no official definition available)
• Not linked to spend, maximum payment according to calculation of tariffs
• Standard costs (Fasset tariff) as informed by regular research
• Absence of funding regulations or guidelines from DHET
• Linked to Learning Programmes Matrix (which is still used in B-BBEE)
