I have been asked by a number of people what the difference is between SASSETA training mandatory grants and discretionary grants.
A mandatory grant is payable to skills levy paying companies on submission by 30 June of each year of a Workplace Skills Plan and Annual Training Report.
The relevant Seta will pay 50% of the total levies back to the employer. Payments are made quarterly. The relevant Seta for the security industry being SASSETA.
The purpose of the discretionary grants are to encourage employers to contribute towards the objectives of the Human Resources Development Strategy and the National Skills Development Strategy. These grants are funded by the relevant Seta and are allocated to compliant employers. One of the criteria to qualify for a Discretionary Grant is to have submitted a Workplace Skills Plan and an Annual Training Report.
A Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) is a plan that outlines envisaged training for the year and is submitted to the relevant Seta on 30 June of each year. An Annual Training Report (ATR) is a report of the actual training completed and also submitted on 30 June of each year.
