CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE SKILLS DEVELOPMENT SCORECARD


There are two facets to take into account on the Skills Development Scorecard, namely:

 

1.     Skills Development Expenditure; and

2.     Headcount.

 

The total points for Skills Development expenditure on Black People are ten against a total target of 6% of the Leviable Amount. The 2019 changes to the Amended General B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice for Large Enterprises further splits the target as follows:

 

  • 2.5% of the Leviable Amount, specifically for Category A Bursaries for courses registered with the Department for Higher Education and Training (DHET) (4 Points).

  • 3.5% of the Leviable Amount available from all categories, namely A to G, applicable to Bursaries not claimed above, Learnerships, Internships, Apprenticeships, skills programmes, short courses and in-house training (6 Points).

  • An additional target of 0.3% of the Leviable Amount is available to organisations that provide training to Black Employed persons with disabilities. This expenditure for training such employees counts towards achieving an overall 6% expenditure target. Put another way; the expenditure could reflect in two ways, either under general expenditure or bursary expenditure (4 Points).

 

Skills Development Services are available to assist Members with understanding the above.
