Learner Employment Grant (LEG)

The Learner Employment Grant (LEG) Requirements (Updated: 22 June 2017) had the requirement that for small employers, the learners for which they were applying, needed to have attended three (3) Learner Professional Development (LPD) events. This requirement has been removed for the 2017/18 financial year. The grant requirements will shortly be updated, reflecting the removal of the LPD requirement. The online grant system will be available towards the end of October 2017

Ceasing Accreditation- REMINDER

As of 30 June 2018, all SETA quality assured qualifications that have not been replaced by Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) qualifications, will reach their expiry date.

As of 15 December 2017, Fasset will no longer be accepting accreditation requests for any of these qualifications. As it takes providers an average of 6 months to achieve accreditation, any accreditation process commenced after 15 December 2017 would likely leave the provider with insufficient time to effectively run a qualification, before the last date of registration has been reached.
