In collaboration with AAT (SA), a partnership between the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) and the Association of Accounting Technicians, BANKSETA has launched a pilot project to capacity build seven FET institutions in the level three Accounting Technicians qualification and take nominated lecturers through the qualification, but at level four. The initial intake is 300 learners and 35 lecturers in seven provinces, and the project provides additional support to enhance the learners’ employability and facilitate their placement with host employers for practical experience. In Phase 2, the accredited TVET colleges will be responsible for the training of approximately 500 learners.


The participating 8 colleges are listed below and employers are encouraged to set-up an appointment to meet the learners at these centres, as they will be available for permanent placement:

  • Letaba FET College (Tzaneen , Limpopo)
  • Umfolozi FET College (Richardsbay, Kwazulu Natal)
  • Flavius Mareke FET College (Sasolburg, Free State)
  • Motheo FET College (Bloemfontein, Free State)
  • Gert Sibanda FET College (Standerton/Ermelo, Mpumalanga)
  • Orbit FET College (Rustenberg, North West)
  • Lovedale (Eastern Cape)
  • Northern Cape Urban College (Northern Cape)
