B-BBEE SKILLS SPEND

MAXIMISING YOUR SKILLS SPEND

KYA is well positioned to assist clients in maximising their B-BBEE level, predominantly through optimising spend (points) under their Skills Development Scorecard.

Skills Development is one of the three priority elements under Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) and is arguably the easiest area to achieve maximum points. The skills scorecard measures how far an organisation has gone to develop the competencies of black people both internally and externally.

To meet the sub-minimum requirements for Skills Development, a company must achieve 40% of the total weighting points available under this element: this equates to at least 8 out of a possible 20 points on the Generic scorecard.

Furthermore, the Code requires that Black Women should form between 40% and 50% of the beneficiaries of the relevant elements on the B-BBEE scorecard. The focus is also on Black youth, people living with disabilities, the unemployed and those living in rural areas.

KYA principally targets unemployed Black women and disabled youth and can assist in expertly facilitating the skills development process to ensure, not only achievement of your skills spend, but a greater likelihood of throughput and absorption as these individuals exit with in-demand skills. And with the B-BBEE amendments, scheduled to come into effect 30 November 2019, additional opportunities will be created for organisations wishing to spend the 2.5% of leviable amount on Bursaries for Black Students.
