  • This combination needs to be supported by improved:
    • access to post-school learning institutions
    • quality of learning programmes
    • partnerships between employers, post school learning institutions and SETAs.

The Pivotal Grant
  • It is proposed :
    • That employers who provide placements for workplace learning for a college learner/graduate will be given a grant per learner for the duration of the placement.

COSE(Collaboration for Occupational Skills Excellence)
  • The project’s aims are to achieve the alignment of the curricula of programmes at college with the work place learning required to enable learners to qualify for occupational assessments and to improve the quality of college programmes including NVC programmes
