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.
