Workplace Skills Plan
Workplace Skills Plan
DO YOU PAY SKILLS DEVELOPMENT LEVIES? DO YOU APPLY FOR GRANTS TO GET THE MONEY BACK AND TRAIN YOUR EMPLOYEES? HOW CAN YOUR COMPANY BENEFIT FROM THIS?
The Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) and the Annual Training Report (ATR) are two of the fundamental parts to obtaining grants from your SETA to use for training employees.
The WSP is a plan that documents the skills needs in your business and this plan will describe all the initiatives you are planning to undertake to fulfill those skills needs.
It is submitted annually in the first quarter by the 30th of April.
Why is it important to have a Workplace Skills Plan in place?
- It will highlight the skills gaps in your company
- It will highlight the employer’s intention to address these gaps and the initiatives taken
- The SETA’s are able to compile their Sector Skills Plans and allow companies access to the various SETA grants
- It encourages companies to have a well-rounded approach to skills development and training
How do we determine our skills?
At LEARNME we will conduct a skills audit before compiling your Workplace Skills Plan, as this is vital and has several benefits. After the skills audit, we will be able to:
- Provide you with a good snapshot of actual skills and knowledge within your current workforce
- Provide you with the specific developmental areas and where focus is required
- Assist with placement of staff into correct positions, where they are able to use their skills and increase your productivity
- Assist with aligning the Workplace Skills Plan with your company strategy.
- Assist with undertaking succession planning
Annual Training Report
You can qualify for up to 50% of levies paid in training grants BUT you need to submit an Annual Training Report at the end of each financial year, with your Workplace Skills Plan.
The Annual Training Report (ATR) will show the progress of your training in line with your submitted Workplace Skills Plan.
We can assist with completing the report as this will assist in identifying your training success points, and it will also highlight all the deviations to achieve your training objectives.
Not submitting your ATR = Forfeiting the levy portion allocated when submitting your WSP
