The purpose of discretionary grants is to encourage employers in the safety and security sector to contribute towards the objectives of the Human Resources Development Strategy and the National Skills Development Strategy.
The SASSETA Board determines the sector’s areas of strategic importance. This is done by assessing information from Mandatory Grant applications, the Sector Skills Plan (SSP) and other frequent research. In addition to this, strategic areas within SASSETA’s sector are also driven by the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS), which is coordinated by DHET.
