Financial and Accounting training to improve skills levels

Due to the nature of the financial and accounting sector, less than 3% of the workforce does not have basic education. It is however important to improve this figure and provide basic education and training to these employees. FASSET, the Sector Education and Training Authority for the financial and accounting sector, encourages employers to implement the Adult Basic Education and Training programme to facilitate this learning process. They provide funding as well as accredited preferred ABET facilitators that are trained to take into account the unique factors within this industry. The project has been rolled out around the country and offers this incentive to employees and employers who have registered with FASSET.
