November 2012

Pivotal Grant – Fasset Definition

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

Slide13

Fasset Strategy Implementation

November 2012

Pivotal Grant – Fasset Definition

continued

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

Slide14

Fasset Strategy Implementation

November 2012

Pivotal Grant

continued

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

Slide15

Fasset Strategy Implementation

November 2012

Draft Pivotal Grant Criteria
