30. Study Grant Scheme



Employees wishing to study towards education higher than ABET level 4 (Grade 8/Std 6) will be eligible for the study grant scheme. On approval of an application for such a grant the employer concerned will pay up to 50% of the cost of the education fees for that particular year to the educational service provider. The amount paid to the service provider will however be repayable to the respective employer by the employee if the employee is unsuccessful with the requirements for passing that year. The same scheme will also be applicable for employees wishing to study towards a transport qualification through a Technikon or University or to a person with less than ABET 4 where that person wishes to study towards a relevant qualification such as a trade test as a diesel mechanic or trade school.
