As per Paragraph 3.1 statement 300, the Generic Codes of Good Practice, Skills Development only award points if an organisation directly implements Priority Skills for 'Black' People.
Although it does not require that all training aligns with Priority Skills, they must form part of a Skills Development intervention. Therefore, Bursaries within a Measurement Period must align with the needs of an organisation's core services and Priority Skills identified by the sector in which they operate.
Consequently, during a B-BBEE Verification, when measuring Bursaries, indicators are assessed per line on the scorecard to ascertain whether Priority Skills form part of the criteria. Therefore, category B, C and D Skills programmes and Bursaries must align with sector-specific Priority Skills requirements.
Skills Development Services is available to guide organisations in identifying Priority Skills relevant to the sector in which they operate.
