LEARNERSHIPS

With the introduction of the new B-BBEE Codes, businesses now have little choice but to implement learnerships. Learnership not only improve your company’s B-BBEE scorecard, but also offer your staff the essential components of theoretical knowledge and workplace experience through innovative methods of learning.

According to the new B-BBEE codes, companies must spend 6% of their payroll on accredited training for previously disadvantaged individuals and they will additionally be required to enrol 2.5% of the total number of their employees in learnership training courses.

Innovative BEE Solutions can assist you by:

  • Assessing your company’s requirements and aligning them with obtaining the most points on your B-BBEE scorecard
  • Recruiting candidates to be trained
  • Assist in choosing the correct learnerships based on your company’s needs
  • Appointing a facilitator to liaise with the appropriate SETA, manage and direct the process on your behalf
  • Ensuring post-learnership employment for candidates should your company not wish to employ an individual after their learnership is complete

The benefits of learnerships for employers are:

  • Learnerships involve a high proportion of on-the-job training, so your productivity is not impacted as much as with traditional learning methods
  • Learnership training earns high B-BBEE scorecard points, enabling your business to improve its competitiveness when tendering for business
  • Learnerships carry important tax incentives when participating
    • Tax Incentives are deductions from your taxable income that you can claim for each learnership candidate that you have employed
    • Companies can claim tax rebates of up to R40,000 annually and a further R40,000 on completion of the learnership. In the case of learnership candidates with disabilities, each deduction increases to R60,000
