·           Skills Development provide a platform for employees to gain new skills, or, enhance existing skills. Learnerships, in particular, are designed to provide learners with not only the theoretical knowledge and skills required to perform within a certain occupation, the workplace component of a learnership provide a learner with the opportunity to also put knowledge and skills learnt into practice in the practical workplace environment. The learnership model ensure that learners are successful in both assimilating core knowledge of a particular occupation as well as the practical application thereof.

·           Skills Development form a key part of the B-BBEE scorecard and lack of compliance with Skills Development (being a priority element on the B-BBEE scorecard) can lead to dropping full B-BBEE level.

·           PAY LESS TAX!  Participation in learnerships allows your organisation to gain access to the 12(H) tax incentive as outlined in the Income Tax Act. An employer may deduct R 80 000 (for an able-bodied employee) and R 120 000 (for a disabled employee) on learnerships from their Profit Before Tax, thereby significantly reducing tax payments to SARS.
