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
slide13

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
slide14

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
