July 2020


As we've just commemorated and wrapped up Youth month, we wish to send our best wishes to all the youth in our country that is soldiering on and writing exams under such difficult circumstances. We know that this is not how you have imagined and envisaged learning would operate this academic year; the past three months have presented us with unprecedented challenges as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic; let us all remain focused and support each other.

We would like to see the Financial and Accounting Services sector transforming through an increase of qualified and trained young individuals; and we endeavour to keep finding more ways to make this happen. The Black Business Quarterly publication features an article on how Fasset is supporting South Africa's youth for an employable future, please click on this link to read further.

Let's stay alert, control the virus and save lives.

Kind Regards

Ayanda Mafuleka - CEO of Fasset


Like most of our stakeholders in the sector, the Fasset team became homeworkers since the month of March 2020 as the SA Government made its plans to gradually unlock the nation. We have developed our "Return to Work" plan, which outlines how and when Fasset will return to the workplace to able to effectively service stakeholders, whilst ensuring the health and safety of our staff.

With all hands on deck, we want to make sure that the health, wellbeing and safety of our staff, is at the core of our decision making. As the CEO of Fasset, I appointed a Fasset Covid 19 Task Team, led by Advocate Dhlamini that intensely worked on the development of our comprehensive return- to-work plan, in consultation with our labour partner. I have also been engaging with other fellow Seta CEOs and the Department of Higher Education Science and Technology through weekly meetings on Covid-19 matters. Looking back on these past months, what has come across as critical is the need to communicate with your staff and valuable stakeholders at all stages of the process. We went through a rigorous process of developing a detailed return-to-work plan taking into account all the applicable health and safety regulations; as well as evaluating the impact of this pandemic to the delivery of our skills development programmes.

I'm pleased to announce that Fasset is now ready to re-open its doors to the public on the 01 July 2020 and our environment has been vetted as safe by an independent occupational, health and safety service provider. However, please note that for the Lockdown Advanced Level 3 Alert, only 33% of our staff will be working in the office to allow for adequate social distancing; while the rest of the staff continues to work remotely. We have put in place a very strict return to office protocol for all staff and our visitors
