BEE Benefits:

Skills development is a priority element which amounts to 20 points (and 5 bonus points) of the total scorecard points. The minimum of 40% of the points within this element must be scored to avoid dropping a level.

Companies can only score points on skills development if there is sufficient evidence indicating that previously disadvantaged are being trained in scarce and critical skills. This means that a company can include training conducted on any person that satisfies the definition of black as per the BEE Codes of Good Practice regardless of employment status.

What can you Claim?

You can claim the R 21, 500 paid per learner back as a “Mandatory Grant” from your Skills Development Levy.

In addition, you can submit a claim to your SETA for a Discretionary Grant per learner, which will be paid directly to you if successful. However, these Grants are not always awarded, so they should be treated as an “Extra” when considering the business case for a Learnership.
