INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

  • Access to a quality education remains a key factor inhibiting transformation of the Fasset sector. Education represents a way out of deprivation and poverty in South Africa. 
  • The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides financial aid study loans and bursaries for academically deserving and financially needy students. A NSFAS study loan or bursary is for those who do not have the financial means to fund their studies and / or cannot access commercial bank loans or bursaries.
  • The Fasset grant is predominantly geared towards assisting learners in becoming financially independent of their NSFAS debt through the Seta repayment towards the learner’s debt.
  • The secondary goal is to assist transformation in the sector, in supporting African Black learners and people with disabilities (of any population group) who are South Africans, to settle their NSFAS debt.
  • Learners will be relieved of the financial burden of the NSFAS loan and will be more likely to complete their learnerships without having to change jobs or learnerships for higher salaries to pay off their loans.
  • Learners who have already completed a qualification within the Fasset sector, and are being hampered in achieving their potential, due to the financial burden that they are carrying in repaying the loan, will be assisted.
  • Only African Black South Africans and people with disabilities with a valid South African identity document may apply for the grant. This means African black people who are South African citizens by birth or became a South African citizen before 27 April 1994. This is due to the over-representation of White and Indian learners, and the appropriate representation of Coloured learners in employment in the Fasset sector, as compared with the national population statistics. For this reason most discretionary funding (with the exception of Lifelong Learning) is to be directed at Black African individuals. 
 

CHANGES FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR’S GRANT

  • The due date for all discretionary grants is Monday, 15 February 2016. 
  • Hard copies of grant applications must be delivered to Fasset by close of business (16h30) on Monday, 15 February 2016. Grant applications may be faxed or emailed to Fasset to reach the office by 15 February 2016.

DEFINITION OF A PERSON WITH A DISABILITY

  • Employers may apply for this grant on learners with disabilities.  
  • Specific reference to the Guide on the Determination of Medical Tax Credits and Allowances (Issue 4) in terms of the Income Tax Act 58 of 1962 is used to guide the specific definition of disability, in terms of this grant application.
  • When applying for this grant for a person with a disability, the latest Section C of form ITR-DD i.e. Confirmation of Diagnosis of Disability (to determine eligibility under section 18(2) (b) of the Income Tax Act, 1962 (as amended)) must be included.
  • Fasset reserves the right to query disability status and request additional information. BEE verification agencies may be consulted in this regard.
 

Extract from the Guide on the Determination of Medical Tax Credits and Allowances (Issue 4) in terms of the Income Tax Act 58 of 1962:

 

9.3 Prescribed diagnostic criteria for a disability

 

For each of the impairments in the definition of a “disability” in section 18, the Commissioner has prescribed diagnostic criteria. These criteria seek to assess the functional impact of the impairment on a person’s ability to perform daily activities and not the diagnosis of a medical condition. These criteria are discussed below:

 

9.3.1 Vision

 

The minimum requirement for a person to be classified as a blind person is –

  • visual acuity in the better eye with best possible correction, less than 6/18 (0.3); and
  • visual field 10 degrees or less around central fixation.

“6/18” means that what a person with normal vision can read at 18 metres, the person being tested can only read at 6 metres.

“Best possible correction” refers to the position after a person’s vision has been corrected by means of spectacles, contact lenses or intraocular (implanted) lenses.

 

9.3.2 Communication

 

A person is regarded as having a moderate to severe communication disability if, despite appropriate therapy, medication and/or suitable devices, one or more life activities (as listed below, pending age appropriateness), is substantially limited, that is, more than merely inconvenient or bothersome. In other words, if one or more of the following apply, the individual will be regarded as suffering from a moderate to severe communication disability:

  • Inability to make self-understood to familiar communication partners using speech in a quiet setting.
  • Inability to make self-understood to both familiar or non-familiar communication partners and incapability of meeting appropriate communication needs for his or her age by using speech, in less than 30 intelligible words.
  • Problems in understanding meaningful language by familiar communication partners that lead to substantial difficulty in communicating.
  • The need to rely on augmentative or alternative communication (AAC), including unaided (for example, sign language or other manual signs) or aided means of communication (ranging from communication boards to speech generating devices).
 

9.3.3 Physical

 

A person is regarded as a person with a disability if the impairment is such that the person is –

  • unable to walk, for example, a wheelchair user;
  • only able to walk with the use of assistive devices, for example, calipers, crutches, walking frames and other similar devices;
  • able to walk without the use of assistive devices, but with a degree of difficulty, for example, persons with Cerebral Palsy, Polio (that is, persons who require an inordinate amount of time to walk); and
  • functionally limited in the use of the upper limbs.
 

9.3.4 Mental

 

With the exclusion of intellectual disability, a person is regarded as having a mental disability if that person has been diagnosed (in accordance with accepted diagnostic criteria as prescribed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual IV-TR (DSM-IV-TR)) by a mental health care practitioner who is authorised to make such diagnosis, and such diagnosis indicates a mental impairment that disrupts daily functioning and which moderately or severely interferes or limits the performance of major life activities, such as learning, thinking, communicating and sleeping, amongst others.

 

A moderate impairment means a Global Assessment Functioning Score (GAF-Score) of 31 to 60. A severe impairment means a GAF-Score of 30 and below.

 

9.3.5 Hearing

 

The term “hearing disability” refers to the functional limitations resulting from a hearing impairment. Hearing impairment is a sensory impairment that will influence verbal communication between speaker and listener.

 

An adult is considered moderately to severely hearing impaired when the hearing loss, without the use of an amplification device, is described as follows:

  • Bilateral hearing loss with a pure tone average equal to or greater than 25 dBHL in each ear.
  • Unilateral hearing loss with pure tone average equal to or greater than 40 dBHL in the affected ear.
 

A child is considered moderately to severely hearing impaired when the hearing loss, without the use of an amplification device, is as follows:

  • Bilateral hearing loss with a pure tone average greater than 15 dBHL in each ear.
  • Unilateral hearing loss with a pure tone average equal to or greater than 20 dBHL in the affected ear.
 

Notes:

  • Hearing impairment is an abnormal or reduced function in hearing resulting from an auditory disorder.
  • A child is a person who is not over the age of 18 years.
  • Amplification devices include hearing aids, implantable devices and assistive listening devices.
  • Pure Tone Average (PTA): average of hearing sensitivity thresholds (in decibel hearing level) to pure tone signals at 500Hz and 1000Hz, 2000Hz and 4000Hz of each ear.
  • Bilateral hearing loss is a hearing sensitivity loss in both ears.
  • Unilateral hearing loss is a hearing sensitivity loss in one ear only.
 

9.3.6 Intellectual

 

A person is regarded as having an intellectual disability if he or she has a moderate to severe impairment in intellectual functioning that is accompanied by a significant limitation in adaptive functioning in at least two of the following skill areas:

  • Communication
  • Self-care
  • Home living
  • Social or interpersonal skills
  • Use of community resources
  • Self-direction
  • Functional academic skills, work, leisure, health and safety
 

A moderate impairment means an intelligence quotient (IQ) of 35 to 49. A severe impairment means an IQ of 34 and below.

 

9.4 Confirmation of disability (ITR-DD form)

 

A person who wishes to claim a medical deduction for disability expenses must complete a Confirmation of Diagnosis of Disability form (ITR-DD), which is available on the SARS website (www.sars.gov.za).The ITR-DD must not be submitted with the annual income tax return, but must be retained for compliance purposes in the event of a SARS audit. The ITR-DD needs to be completed and endorsed by a registered medical practitioner every five years, if the disability is of a more permanent nature. However, if the disability is temporary, the ITR-DD will only be valid for one year, which effectively means that a new ITR-DD must be completed for each year of assessment during which a disability claim is made.

 

A disability will be regarded as being temporary in nature if that disability is expected to last for less than five years.

 

In Part C of the ITR-DD the registered medical practitioner must –

  • indicate and describe if the functional limitations with respect to performing activities of daily living are regarded as either “mild” or “moderate to severe”;
  • indicate if the disability has lasted, or is expected to last for a continuous period of more than 12 months; and
  • sign the declaration.
 

Duly registered medical practitioners specifically trained to deal with the particular disability include the following:

  • Vision: Practitioner trained to use the Snellen chart (for example, an optometrist or ophthalmologist).
  • Hearing: Practitioner trained to perform or conduct a battery of the diagnostic audiometry tests (for example, an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist or Audiologist).
  • Speech: Speech-Language Pathologist.
  • Physical: Orthopaedic Surgeon, Neuro Surgeon, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist.
  • Intellectual: Psychiatrist or Clinical Psychologist.
  • Mental: Psychiatrist or Clinical Psychologist.

CONSENT AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS IN TERMS OF THE PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION ACT 2013 (POPI)

1. Introduction

The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) aims to give effect to the constitutional right to privacy by balancing the right to privacy against that of access to information. POPI requires that personal information pertaining to individuals be processed lawfully and in a reasonable manner that does not infringe on the right to privacy.

This consent form sets out how personal information will be collected, used and protected by Fasset, as required by POPI. The use of the words “the individual” for the purposes of this document shall be a reference to any individual communicating with Fasset and/or concluding any agreement, registration or application, with the inclusion of each individual referred to or included in terms of such agreement, registration or application.

 

2. What is personal information?

The personal information that Fasset requires relates to names and surnames, birth dates, identity numbers, passport numbers, demographic information, education information, occupation information, health information, addresses, memberships, and personal and work email and contact details.  

 

3. What is the purpose of the collection, use and disclosure (the processing) of personal information?

Fasset is legally obligated to collect, use and disclose personal information for the purposes of:

  • reporting skills development initiatives to the Department of Higher Education and Training;
  • reporting enrolments and achievements of programmes to the South African Qualifications Authority;
  • reporting on quality assurance functions to the Quality Council of Trades and Occupations;
  • evaluating and processing applications for access to financial and other benefits;
  • compiling statistics and other research reports;
  • providing personalised communications; complying with the law;
  • and/or for a purpose that is ancillary to the above.

Fasset may also use and disclose personal information for the purposes of:

  • providing personal information to third parties who demonstrate an interest in either employing or making use of the services provided by an individual, in circumstances where the individual has indicated in clause 7(b), below, that he/she would like his/her details made available to potential employers or clients.
 

Fasset will not process personal information for a purpose other than those which are identified above without obtaining consent to further processing beforehand.

 

4. What is ‘processing’?

POPI provides that the term “processing’’ covers any operation or activity, whether or not by automatic means, concerning personal information, including collection, receipt, recording, organisation, collation, storage, retrieval, alteration, consultation or use; dissemination by means of transmission, distribution or making available in any other form; or merging, linking, as well as restriction, erasure or destruction of information.

 

5. How will Fasset process personal information?

Fasset will only collect personal information for the purpose as stated above. Information will be collected in the following manner:

  • directly from the individual;
  • from an agent, relative, employer, work colleague or other duly authorised representative who may seek or request our services;
  • from education institutions, training providers, or other service providers that are providing or provided the individual with services;
  • from our own records relating to our previous supply of services or responses to the individual’s request for services; and/or
  • from a relevant public or equivalent entity.
 

6. To whom will personal information be disclosed?

The personal information may be disclosed to other relevant public or other entities on whose behalf we act as intermediaries, other third parties referred to above in relation to the purpose or who are sources of personal information, service providers such as professional bodies who operate across the borders of this country (trans-border flow of information) where personal information must be sent in order to provide the information and/or services and/or benefits requested or applied for. In the event of another party/ies acquiring all of or a portion of Fasset’s mandate or functions, personal information will be disclosed to that party but they will equally be obliged as we are, to protect personal information in terms of POPI.

 

7. Consent and Permission to process personal information (authorised signatory):

  • I hereby provide authorisation to Fasset to process the personal information provided for the purpose stated.
  • I understand that withholding of or failure to disclose personal information will result in Fasset being unable to perform its functions and/or any services or benefits I may require from Fasset.
  • Where I shared personal information of individuals other than myself with Fasset I hereby provide consent on their behalf to the collection, use and disclosure of their personal information in accordance with this consent provided and I warrant that I am authorised to give this consent on their behalf.
  • To this end, I indemnify and hold Fasset harmless in respect of any claims by any other person on whose behalf I have consented, against Fasset should they claim that I was not so authorised.
  • I understand that in terms of POPI and other laws of the country, there are instances where my express consent is not necessary in order to permit the processing of personal information, which may be related to police investigations, litigation or when personal information is publicly available.
  • I will not hold Fasset responsible for any improper or unauthorised use of personal information that is beyond its reasonable control.
 

8. Rights regarding the processing of personal information:

  • The individual may withdraw consent to the processing of personal information at any time, and should they wish to do so, must provide Fasset with reasonable notice to this effect. Please note that withdrawal of consent is still subject to the terms and conditions of any contract that is in place. Should the withdrawal of consent result in the interference of legal obligations, then such withdrawal will only be effective if Fasset agrees to same in writing. Fasset specifically draws to the attention that the withdrawal of consent may result in it being unable to provide the requested information and/or services and/or financial or other benefits. Further, please note that the revocation of consent is not retroactive and will not affect disclosures of personal information that have already been made.
  • In order to withdraw consent, please contact the Information Officer at popi@fasset.org.za.
  • Where personal information has changed in any respect, the individual is encouraged to notify Fasset so that our records may be updated. Fasset will largely rely on the individual to ensure that personal information is correct and accurate.
  • The individual has the right to access their personal information that Fasset may have in its possession and is entitled to request the identity of which third parties have received and/or processed personal information for the purpose. Please note however, that any request in this regard may be declined if:
  • the information comes under legal privilege in the course of litigation,
  • the disclosure of personal information in the form that it is processed may result in the disclosure of confidential or proprietary information,
