The year is nearly coming to an end, so are the chilly winter months. We look forward to warmer days as we enter into Spring next month.

The month of August also commemorates women; we give recognition to all the women making waves in our sector, may they continue to fly the flag high.

TVET Work based Experience (WBE) Programme

The Department of Higher Education and Training 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; and
  • Of an adequate length to allow sufficient time to gain exposure and experience in a number of generic and specific skills.
Fasset has opened a window for employers in our sector to apply to train learners from TVET Colleges.
Note that the window will close on the 31 August 2017.

4 Life Orientation Teachers Career Development Training Workshops

Fasset in partnership with the Department of Higher Education and Training will be hosting the L.O Teacher’s workshops and career roadshows. Fasset has identified gaps in the career awareness value chain, and in the way that career awareness information is disseminated. In closing these gaps, Fasset will be offering training to L.O Teachers as we believe they play a crucial role in career development. The first session will kick-off today in Cradock (EC) from the 21 – 22 August followed by a career roadshow on the 23 and 24 August.
