8 – To claim contributions towards skills development a company must;. comply with the Skills Development Act. be registered with MICT SETA as an employer. have developed a Workplace Skills Plan and implemented programmes targeted at Priority Skills in the Sector. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

9 – The purpose of this Gazette is to quantify the Rand value committed by the ICT Sector on the training of black employees. – In 2012, Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr. Rob Davis Gazetted the ICT Sector Codes of Good Practice (ICT Sector Codes) in terms of section 9(1) of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act (B-BBEE Act, Act no. 53 of 2003). – This Gazette comes after a period of nine years (9) since the First Draft ICT Charter was released for public comment as part of the Sector’s commitments to B-BBEE. – The ICT Sector Code is binding to all stakeholders operating in the Sector. – Skills Development is one of the seven (7) elements of B-BBEE to promote skills development in the Sector. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

10 Oupa Mopaki Chief Executive Officer OVERVIEW x 5% = Black Employees x R 35k = R 284m (284m/540m) x 1% = 0,53% of Leviable Amount

11 SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PRINCIPLE – The Skills Development Code defines the Sector’s financial commitment towards skills development spend on black employees, agreed targets and how skills development is calculated and measured. TRAINING OF BLACK EMPLOYEES – Black employees are defined as Africans, Indians and Coloureds who are South African by birth or naturalised before SECTOR SKILLS DEVELOPMENT COMMITMENTS

12 – The Sector committed to spending at least 3% of the total leviable amount on training black employees every year. This translates to R1.6b. – The Sector also committed to spending another 0.3% on disabled black employees. This translates to R162m. – The R1.6b and the R162m, between April 2014-March 2015, are based on the MICT SETA’s total 1% Skills Development Levy income for period 2012/13 which amounts to R540m. SECTOR SKILLS DEVELOPMENT COMMITMENTS

13 – The Sector committed to have the number black employees participating in Learnerships or Category B, C and D Programmes as 5% of total employees. This translates to black employees based on the total of employees in the MICT sector. – In order to determine the percentage of Leviable Amount relating to the training of black employees, an average training cost of R 35k per employee per year is envisaged. The total training cost of R 284m is assumed to include the employees’ salaries and training providers’ fees whilst they are undergoing training. The percentage of Leviable Amount then translates to 0.53% of the 1% of payroll. – The total ring-fence should then be R 1.6b + R 160m + R 284m = R 2b – SECTOR SKILLS DEVELOPMENT COMMITMENTS

14 – In terms of the BEE BILL, state owned entities must take into account and apply any relevant code of good practice in terms of the Amended Act in – determining criteria for awarding of incentives, grants and investments schemes in support of broad-based black economic empowerment. – The BEE BILL was submitted to the President in November 2013 to sign into law.
