FET College Collaboration
 SASSETA has joined hands with the rest of other SETA’s in
supporting the Minister of Higher Education and Training’s
broader vision of reviving the FET Sector
 We have set ourselves a strategic goal of ensuring that by
2015 the FET Colleges will be responsive to the needs of the
sector
 We have thus far signed Memoranda of Agreement with
the following FET Colleges:
Gert Sibande
Nkangala
Ehlanzeni

Opening of Regional Offices
The Department of Higher Education and Training has directed the
SETA’s to partner with FET Colleges in opening up Regional Offices
 SASSETA has been directed to KZN to partner with Amajuba FET
College, Elangeni FET College and Ethekwini FET College
 Progress has been achieved in this regard in that all the 3 Colleges
have been visited but it transpired that Ethekwini FET College is the
only College that has adequate facilities to accommodate SASSETA in
KZN
 Arrangements have been made such that SASSETA will be using
their office space free of charge while only paying cost for water and
electricity
 The intended date for the launch of the Office was February 2013
but has since been delayed by the approval processes of Regional
Structure

Work Integrated Learning
 The challenge of placement of FET Graduates has made us to
seek a collective solution with our employers
 DHET has requested SASSETA to place 100 FET College
graduates in our sector for 2013 academic year
The 100 have since been successfully placed at the Legal Aid
Board, POPCRU and SAPS
 Special thanks to our employers and stakeholders for this
collective effort in responding to our social ills
 Invitation is extended to other stakeholders to work
closely with us in responding to NSDS 111 imperatives
