      Thank you George. I really like your sentence “…the majority of students have voice as a result of which they are able to¬†articulate their challenges without the assistance of their counterparts from other racial groups or that of other stakeholders such as academics, political and civic leaders.”

      Please don’t underestimate university students. They have gotten so far for a reason and it was not because of charity or luck.

      Calculated at the end of the financial year and taken into consideration when having to pay tax to SARS (our auditors do it for us :-))

      Hi Lynn. Companies should also know that they can reduce their tax by R 40 000 per year in the year the learner starts and in the year the learner finishes (this is for learnerships). Also, if a learner is under 28 years of age, the company can reduce the PAYE with ETI on a monthly basis and if one is registered with a SETA and hands in the Workskills Plan and Report, the company can claim from the Pivotal Grants. Obviously it involves some documentation and rules, but ultimately the cost of a Stipend is not that great.

      Good question. We used to pay R 4000, but have increased it to R 5000 / month (NQF5). Most learners have transport costs, have to pay for a room, because their actual home is far away and have to pay for food.
