BBBEE Points – Skills Development Pillar

Under the DTI’s Generic Scorecard, for companies with turnover greater than R35 million, 15 BEE points are allocated to skills development with two measurements:

1. Spend on skills development
• Target 3% of payroll spent on the training of black
people with an emphasis on black women
(adjusted recognition for gender applies) 6 points
• Target 0.3% of payroll spent on black disabled people 3 points

2. Learnerships
• Target 5% of staff (headcount) should be black people
on learnerships, an emphasis on black women 6 points
Learnerships can amount to 12 BEE points. The advantage with learnerships is that the salaries (stipends) paid to the learners whilst they are engaged on the learnership are also considered skills development spend, together with the cost of the learnership. This makes a sizeable impact on the skills development spend target of 3% of payroll. Adding black disabled learners can attract a further 3 points.

Companies with turnover under R35 million can earn 25 BEE points for skills development. The target spend is 2% of payroll on training black employees.

To qualify, the spending must be done in the financial period that is being measured for BEE points. Learners are regarded as “employees” for the period of the learnership. They sign one-year fixed term contracts that place no further obligations on the funder.

Skills development is one of the key features of the B-BBEE act and therefore, Learneship is another ‘easy’ way to improve your B-BBEE Score.

By offering skills development learnership at work, you will not only develop your employees but you will also make a contribution to empowering your industry.

Skills Development contributes 20 points to the scorecard and are split between the level of investment in skills development as a percentage of payroll and people employed through both learnerships and internships.

If you plan to set up a learnership within your company, you must make sure that it complies with the following six criteria to enhance your BEE Scorecard:

Your company’s learnership program must:

      Consist of a structural learning component

 

      Include practical work experience

 

      Be Registered through a SETA

 

      Must be governed by a learnership agreement

 

      Lead to a SAQA NQF registered qualification and

 

    Relate to an occupation

If your learneship program meets the above criteria you could add 20 points to your scorecard and you will have well-trained prospective employees to choose from when you need to hire new staff.
