B-BBEE Sector Codes of Good Practice (Sector Codes) vary from each other as they do from the General B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice (Generic Codes).

"means a measure of the Measured Entity’s ability to successfully secure formal permanent or long-term contract employment for a Learner or to assist a Learner further their education and training".
The differentiation in this case between the Generic Codes and AgriBEE is the inclusion of the words “permanent” and ”further education and training”.
