HLP Skills Development

Skills development is:

  • The process of Identifying your skill gaps,
  • Developing these skills.

“… In goal achievement, your skills are your tools”

In today’s age of globalisation and technological volatility, skill building is an important instrument to increase the efficacy and quality of labour for improved productivity and economic growth. Skill building is a powerful tool to empower individuals and improve their social acceptance.

HLP Special Projects

Unemployed Learnerships
A Learnership is a program that allows suitable students or unemployment graduates to obtain opportunities to learn more than just classroom-based learning. In another words, preparing learners to obtain a clear understanding about the necessary business know how’s to master and widen their path for employment opportunity.

Our unemployed learnership programs are structured, short term contractual interventions which encourage job creation and promote talent development.
Learners who take part in these programs will benefit from gaining critical, functional and behavioral competencies which contribute significantly to the learner’s employment marketability. On completion of these programs and respective academic studies, many of the participating learners transition into full time employees.

We partner with various SETA’s to ensure that the Skills Development Strategy is aligned. We also recruit learners as per the client’s needs.

HLP Enterprise and Supplier Spend

Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) Explained:
In the context of South Africa, ESD refers to a set of affirmative action and local content development measures aimed at promoting economic transformation. Under the revised B-BBEE Codes, ESD refers to the combination of Preferential Procurement, Supplier Diversity, Supplier Development and Enterprise Development programs.

Preferential Procurement
(25 +2 points) is a national policy aimed at public and sector procurement to buy goods and services from previously disadvantaged individuals or businesses.

Supplier Development
(10 points) is the process of working with certain suppliers on a one-to-one basis to improve their performance for the benefit of the buying organisation, leading to improvements in the total added value from the supplier in question in terms of B-BBEE rating, product or service offering, business processes and performance, and improvements in lead times and delivery.

Enterprise Development
(5 points) is an economic development strategy that is underpinned by building SMMEs, and integrating them into competitive markets that are stronger and more inclusive.

Enterprise development is achieved by monetary and non-monetary, recoverable and non-recoverable contributions actually initiated in favour of a beneficiary entity by a measured entity with the specific objective of assisting or accelerating the development, sustainability and ultimate financial independence of the beneficiary.
