Apart from assisting companies with their BBBEE scoring VITAL SKILLS also structures BBBEE programmes for Supplier, Enterprise and Socio Economic Development ( ESD and SED)

Companies are required to spend a fraction of their nett profit on qualifying projects in order to secure up to 20 B-BBEE points.

SED- Socio Economic Development  Projects     

The key principle of Socio-economic development is for your company to carry out initiatives that result in the beneficiaries having sustainable access to the economy and hence reduce the poverty barrier.

Your company needs to spend 1% of your Net Profit After Tax to earn all the points available. Costs can be direct or indirect. Costs are tax deductable as well. BINDING CLASS RULING: BCR 002  - See  the SARS note here.

We use your funding to implement ABET ,and other vocational projects  :

1. to support  the proclaimed national critical skills priority area of ABET and adult education for the job seeker
2. for the upliftment of unemployed and educationally disadvantaged Black learners 
Your contribution thus directly services to a sector of the community hardest hit by poverty and the HIV AIDS pandemic by  funding two critical ABET areas:


  • Training and deploying  of home based care givers and child carers in the community,
  • Empowering  individuals to market themselves as employable care givers/child minders  in the community,
  • Allowing  individuals to progress  to higher ancillary and primary health care qualifications and thus better job prospects.


  These structured programmes are intended for unemployed Black persons who as a result of his unemployment cannot access job opportunities or Learnerships currently  offered within industry to its employees.


  These structured VOCATIONAL programmes such as plumbing, hos[itality, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and welding are also intended for unemployed Black persons who as a result of his unemployment cannot access job opportunities or Learnerships currently  offered within industry to its employees.

                                        Supplier and Enterprise Development

To claim the full 15 points allocated to enterprise development contributions, contributions must:
1. amount to 3% of your Net Profit After Tax ('NPAT'),
2. be aimed at creating and sustaining small Black owned businesses that are or will become suppliers to you.

We manage your grant to ensure that it maximises your points by:

  • locating black owned sole proprietors and start ups  and/or
  • developing  new ones, and then
  • assisting the benficiaries by training and mentoring to become self-sufficient and profitable enterprises capable  of offering employment opportunities to others.

Our ACCREDITED TRAINING PROGRAMMES  allow us the ideal opportunity to use our programmes to transfer skills in the fields of new venture creation, entrepreneurship, ancillary health care, home based care giving,  HIV work and training to new ventures that we support.

This we achieve by transferring and mentoring:

  • of technical skills and knowledge of the core business of the new venture  and 
  • of fundamental operational and  business skills,  which is then followed by
  • an incubation period of  knowledge investment, mentorship and technical and financial support to the new enterprise.
