Incentive to host Saasveld students for their experimental (practial) training
Incentive now offered to assist members in hosting Saasveld students for their experimental (practical) training & request to volunteer to do so.
members are aware, Saasveld students are placed with employers within
the Industry for the period April to December during their second year
of studies. During the current economic downturn, Saasveld has found it
increasingly difficult to place these students with employers as fewer
employers have been willing (or able) to do so for cost reasons. There
is now some good news.
(A): INCENTIVE OFFERED
am extremely pleased to be able to report that Saasveld has secured
funding from the FP&M SETA which will act as a great incentive for
prospective employers to host students. The basic details of this
incentive are as follows:
- The SETA will provide R3 000 per month per student for each of the 9 months of the practical training period to Saasveld.
- This funding will be administered by Saasveld.
- On receipt of a monthly logbook signed by the host employer, Saasveld will pay over to the student a monthly stipend of R3 000.
provision of the stipend will obviate the need for the host employer to
pay a monthly stipend, thus reducing the cost to the employer of
hosting a student.
(B): REQUEST TO HOST STUDENTS
At the time of writing, Saasveld still needs to place a limited number of students (please see attached). Should you be in a position to assist with the hosting of these students, please make contact with Tiaan Pool at Saasveld ASAP.
