FASA TO REGISTER WITH THE SERVICES SETA AS A PROFESSIONAL BODY

Since the overhaul of the various SETA’s, the Minister of Higher Education has given the SETAs a mandate to establish revised constitutions, establish accounting authorities, have representation for their six different chambers – one being for Associations who are now invited to register as professional bodies. Presenting at FASA’s AGM, Chairman Jan Davel expanded on the benefits that this new development will have for franchisors.  These include:

  • Accreditation for qualifying franchisors
  • Access to grant funding with a view to further both skills development and job creation.
  • Formalizing training standards.
  • Setting higher barriers to entry.
  • Refunds on Skills Development Levies.

The National Skills Accord has identified 8 key areas with a commitment to:

    • Expand the level of training using existing facilities more fully.
    • Make internship and placement opportunities available within the workplace.
    • Set guidelines of ratios of trainees in order to improve level of training.
    • Increase the funding of training – incentivise companies to train.
    • Set annual targets for training in state-owned enterprises.
    • Improve SETA governance and financial management, as well as stakeholder involvement;
    • Align training to Growth Plan and improve Sector Skills Plans;
    • Improve the role and performance of FET colleges.

This new directive by government bodes well for franchising and for FASA who can play a greater role in assisting in training with a view to increasing the skills-base for the SA economy.  Whilst FASA intends registering as a professional body, franchisor members should serve on the accounting authorities or chambers.
