How the CBM RPL Learnership Works

To qualify for significant tax and other grants, your company needs to nominate a relevant candidate/s. All delegates whom register for the CBM Training's RPL Learnership will need to obtain a Learnership Agreement from their Company's Seta, this agreement needs to be signed by three parties namely the employer, training provider (CBM Training) and the delegate attending. When applying to claim for the tax rebate, the company's account department will need to submit the SARS IT180 form as well as the signed Learnership Agreement.

Please note that there is a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in place between all the Setas.

The Learner will need to sign the Learnership Agreement and attend 7 sessions where they discuss issues relating to the module, and fill in the RPL Assessment tool. They also need to do a small work project and read a provided resource pack prior to the next session. The whole Learnership will be completed over a 12 month period with only 6 full days and 1 half day out of the office for each Learner.


The Learning Benefits of the RPL Process

Doing an RPL qualification often reminds a learner what they already know, as well as stretches them while they perform their small workplace projects. They do also learn new things while reading the resource packs, and participating in the group discussions. Learners will definitely finish the Qualification with more knowledge than they started with.


The CBM RPL Learnership has the following key advantages:

  • It is easy and painless to implement. You nominate the employees, we arrange the Learnership and provide you with all the necessary documentation
  • You can use current employees, you don't have to find an unemployed person and have the management strife of having to look after this person
  • The program only takes staff out of the office for 6 and a half days (1 day every 6 weeks plus a "wrap up" half day), and delivers a full SAQA qualification
  • There are Learnership programs starting in different months, so you can book multiple Learners without them being out of the office at the same time
  • Staff develop and grow significantly through facilitated discussion and the 6 workplace projects they need to complete
  • Staff sent on the Learnership gain in motivation and company loyalty from being sent on a qualification-bearing program
  • You access a tax rebate per learner for your company by completing a two page IT 180 SARS form
  • The training fees are tax deductible as training, plus you can claim them back from your SDL Levies
  • You can use the fees paid when completing your annual BBBEE scorecard, even if you have claimed them back from your SDL Levies


What it Costs

The RPL Learnership in Business Administration Services NQF 3 costs R15, 750 (excl vat) per learner, or R14, 175 (excl vat) for 3 or more learners. These rates are fully tax deductible as a training expense, and can be utilised in the BEE Scorecard Audit. The majority of this can also be claimed back from your Skills Development Levy.


What you can Claim

You can deduct from your company's taxable income in the tax year end following the signing of the Learnership agreement as well as a further amount following the successful completion of the Learnership by your candidates.

You can additionally claim the R15, 750 paid per Learner back as a "Mandatory Grant" from your Skills Development Levy, as CBM Training is a registered FET college, and this process leads to a qualification, this can form part of your PIVOTAL training.

In addition, you can submit a claim to your SETA for a Discretionary Grant per Learner, which will be paid directly to you if successful. However, these Grants are not always awarded, so they should be treated as an "Extra" when considering the business case for a Learnership.
