Bang for Your B-BBEE Buck: The Benefits of LLCA Programmes

The LLC Academy, is a 73.57% Black Owned Level 2 Designated Group Supplier that is Services SETA, QCTO and COMENSA accredited, and is focused on the upliftment and skills development of South Africans. We are committed to educating, nurturing and inspiring our candidates to believe in themselves and become suitable for employment opportunities that were previously out of their reach. This is done through our vast array of programmes – programmes that have the added benefit of giving you bang for your B-BBEE buck. 

“Simply put, The LLC Academy’s programmes cover the skills development, socio-economic development, enterprise and supplier development, and procurement aspects of the B-BBEE scorecard,” says Eileen Thornhill, Director of The LLC Academy. “For example, all of the programmes offered by The LLC Academy cater for many of the sub-objectives of the skills development element of the B-BBEE scorecard. Our programmes are classified as category B, C and D on the B-BBEE Skills Matrix – not to mention the ongoing impact they have on our students in the workforce and in their communities.” 

“In terms of the socio-economic development aspect of the B-BBEE scorecard, almost all of our client contributions are used to broaden the reach of both our Teach-a-Teacher and Support-a-School Programmes,” says Thornhill. “Client contributions can be used to run any learning programme for a black South African individual, and our clients get to choose how their SED funds are put to use. The LLC Academy provides all of the necessary vetting of candidates, as well as the required documentation for verification.” 

“The same applies to our rating for enterprise and supplier development,” says Thornhill. “Client contributions can be used to broaden our programme offering, and The LLC Academy provides all necessary documentation for verification and a valid B-BBEE Certificate.” 

“Finally, The LLC Academy especially shines when it comes to the procurement aspect of the B-BBEE scorecard,” says Thornhill. “The selection and appointment of your supply base is critical when managing this particular element, and you need to be assured that every R100 spent by your business earns maximum benefit. At The LLC Academy, every R100 a customer spends with us counts four times as R125. It is counted in the Amended Codes of Good Practice under the categories of BEE Procurement Spend from all empowering suppliers, from QSE, from a 73.57% Black Owned entity, as well as the bonus points that are given for procurement from a 51% black designated group. This amounts to every R100 spent with us counting as R500 on your procurement scorecard.” 

“The LLC Academy is dedicated to the upliftment of all South Africans,” says Thornhill. “This is why we are committed to B-BBEE benefitting everyone involved, from both the corporate side as well as from those that programmes such as ours are created to develop and assist. We are always delighted when we can help!”
