MANDATORY GRANT APPLICATIONS DUE ON 30 APRIL 2014 -

                REMEMBER TO PRESS THE BUTTON!

                Firms in the FP&M sector eligible to pay skills development levies are reminded that their mandatory grant applications (WSP/ATR/PIVOTAL plan and report) for the period 2014/15 are due for submission on 30 April 2014.

                Skills Development Facilitators (SDFs) must register to gain access to the Skills Planning module via the MIS. Please note that SDFs will not be able to access the MIS system until their registration has been accepted by the FP&M SETA so please allow for enough time for this process to take place. Once your registration has been completed, you can proceed to capture your mandatory grant application - Workplace Skills Plan, Annual Training Report and PIVOTAL reports (where applicable).

                SDFs are also reminded that mandatory grant applications are only completed once the  button has been pressed. An e-mail will be send to SDFs to confirm that the application has been submitted.
