Training solutions that deliver strategic value, whilst providing impact

Why Skills Development (SD)?

A skilled workforce is a critical component of any successful economy. The challenge we face is that the South African workplace and labour market are plagued by a lack of experience and applicants without the required hard skills.

Skills Development is a priority element, in terms of national importance and the B-BBEE scorecard. This element of the B-BBEE Scorecard is designed to facilitate training, development and capacitation. Did you know that failing to achieve a sub-minimum for this important element leads to a discounting of one whole level?

Doing Skills Development right

When it comes to Skills Development, there are several elements to consider, including in-house capacitation, individual upliftment, societal upliftment, and compliance with legislation. But in practice, these can be complex to achieve.

In addition, ever-changing legislation, tax relief and product offerings from service providers increase the complexity and, between SETA submissions, learner agreements, feedback, and reporting, it can be hard for companies to maintain momentum.

Do you or your team have the knowledge and project management expertise needed to maximise SD points on your B-BBEE scorecard, maintaining compliance, while upskilling people at the same time?


Skills123: an ideal Skills solution for you

Skills123 is about bringing together strategic impact, cost-effectiveness, and implementation – to achieve full alignment with the B-BBEE scorecard, while structuring Skills programmes to optimise costs via tax incentives and rebates. It’s a seamless outsourced solution, and it can be purchased as a stand-alone offering, whether or not you’re using our core software.

Here’s why our clients have come to rely on Skills123:

  • We’re specialists in Skills Development capacitation that’s aligned to the Codes.
