Power your employees development with skills that matter

We provide Category-B aligned training and BBBEE skills development courses for business. Maximising your Return on Learning Investment (ROLI), while actively contributing to a better tomorrow through education.

As our courses fall into Category B of the Skills Development Matrix, it means that the full cost of the course plus the salary of the trainee, for the duration of the course can potentially be recognised on your scorecard, thereby adding key skills to your organisation and maximising points to your scorecard

MasterStart courses are workplace-applicable: Our content is developed with industry-experts at the forefront of their sector and our programmes are designed to build the confidence and competence of our learners. With live peer-to-peer workshops, our courses enable learners to put their learnings into a real-world context.

MasterStart courses accreditation: All our courses enable successful learners to achieve a competency-based certificate issued by an accredited or registered formal institution of learning. The courses are formally assessed by industry-experts and result in a competence based certificate upon successful completion of the course.

What does recognising the cost of your employee salaries and course fee mean in rand terms?: It means that for every R100 direct cost you spend with MasterStart and MasterStart South Africa, your business could recognise up to R600 against your scorecard spend requirements.
