Beneficiaries may now include some non-employees
   
Company X could fund a careers workshop for unemployed out of school youth. This spend would assist with the Company X BBBEE Scorecard
  
  Training for Company X’s black employees (informal programme ) Soft skills training by Qhakaza e.g. life skills, goal setting, conflict management, communication skills, English language communication etc. For an example see From Trainees To Trainers through BBBEE
  
  Learnerships Company X identifies a scare skill. They then apply to their SETA to fund a Learnership. SchoolTrade is accredited as a training provider with the ETDP Seta
