Q | ABC Traders meets its Skills Development target of 5% Learnerships. At the time of its B-BBEE Verification, must 2.5% of the Learners be employed people and 2.5% unemployed, or can the target be split over both?
A | ABC Traders can split the 5% target over employed and unemployed people in whichever way they see fit as per 184.108.40.206 of series 300 of the Codes of Good Practice. ABC Traders can achieve six points if:
“220.127.116.11 Number of black people participating in Learnerships, Apprenticeships and internships as a percentage of total employees.”
However, to claim Absorption, the Learners must not have had a long-term contract of employment.
Skills Development Services are available for Members to understand the requirements for claiming Learnerships.
