TVET Work Based Experience Project

The Department of Higher Education and Training has identified the need to capacitate public TVET Colleges, to become the preferred providers of occupational skills, as relevant, in South Africa. This need was identified to, amongst others, address the high unemployment rate amongst the age group 16 – 34.

It is assumed that work experience will enhance the employability of unemployed persons, in particular if such work experience is:

  • Related to and supports their field of study;
  • Obtained in an environment with processes and structures in place to coach and mentor such persons;
  • Obtained in the environment of a reputable employer;
  • Of an adequate length to allow sufficient time to gain exposure and experience in a number of generic and specific skills.
In this context, Fasset is implementing a project aimed at facilitating and funding workplace-based experience for graduates from public TVET Colleges in the 2016/17 financial year. This project is aimed at learners who have successfully completed the N6 certificate in business studies and who are eligible to achieve the National N Diploma at NQF level 6, upon completion of 18 months’ relevant work experience.
Fasset will be recruiting learners who have specialised in one of the following areas:
  • Financial Management,
  • Business Management,
  • Marketing Management,
  • HR Management, and
  • Management Assistant.
