codeX & Your BEE ScoreCard

Socio-Economic Development

codeX’s Agile Web Developer programme directly supports Socio-Economic Development in the ICT Sector.

What is BEE Socio-Economic Development?

In terms of the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice, the objective of Socio-Economic Development (SED) contributions is the promotion of sustainable access for beneficiaries to the economy.

SED contributions count are any monetary or non-monetary contribution implemented for individuals or communities, where at least 75% of the full value benefits black people.

In most sectors SED contributions qualify for up to 5 points of the BEE Scorecard, and significantly higher at 12 points in the ICT Sector, with the specific aim to address the digital divide.

Through our ground-breaking approach to training, we ensure that candidates who are under-represented in tech acquire the solid technical and practical skills required for a career in web development. 87% of codeX candidates meet the BEE criteria.
