This has enabled Fasset to partner with public providers from Universities and Universities of Technology registered with DHET to ensure that learners are fully bursared in order to obtain formal qualifications that will ultimately enhance their chances of securing learnerships, internships or full time employment in the broader economy including in the Fasset sector.
