maximising your bbbee score card
Our clients require a growth strategy that also fits in with their Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) statutory requirements and training young, unemployed and/or disabled adults will achieve both of these objectives. In the process, our clients also assist with the socio-economic development of their local communities.
Formal training leads to the growth/improvement prospects of a person’s intellectual, social and moral actions. It formulates attitudes and builds skills needed to empower individuals to face the challenging situations of everyday life. This means that the training of unemployed and/or disabled individuals as part of our clients BBBEE statutory requirements uplifts the greater society as well as assisting the sponsoring organisations in growing their talent pool and improving company productivity.
why train unemployed and/or disable individuals as part of your bbbee requirements?
It is to meet this shortcoming that CPT has developed the LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME (LDP). The programme has been established at the NQF 5 level. It consists of 5 modules:
Unemployed individuals are more flexible in adjusting to training schedules – they are available for full-time programmes therefore enabling programmes to be completed sooner
HOW DOES CPT ASSIST OUR CLIENTS IN TRAINING UNEMPLOYED AND/OR DISABLED INDIVIDUALS
CPT will recruit, pre-assess and place individuals according to a company’s demographic requirements.
By collaborating with local communities and organisations, CPT is able to recruit individuals from all the major areas in South Africa. These individuals are pre-assessed to ensure that they are able to cope and complete the required learning programmes, both mentally and physically. CPT will mentor and assist them throughout their studies, and provide additional services such as transport and lunches if/when needed. These learners may be trained on CPT’s premises or at the client’s, depending on the need.
CPT will assist with the completion and submission of learner agreements to the relevant SETA, provide all learning material and stationery, the Portfolio of Evidence, complete with all assessment tools and guidelines, continual assessment throughout the learning programme, internal moderation of Portfolios and submit to SETA for quality assurance purposes, and finally apply for certification. CPT will deliver the certificates upon receipt from the SETA.
Skills development is a priority element which amounts to 20 points (and 5 bonus points) of the total BBBEE 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 people 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 previously disadvantaged as per the BEE Codes of Good Practise regardless of employment status.
WHAT ARE THE LIMITS?
Only 15% of the value of informal, uncertified training will count towards total training expenditure. Accommodation, catering and travel costs will also be limited to 15% of the total value.
