M4S Integr8ed B-BBEE Socio-Skills Optimisation and Mentoring Model
The M4S Integr8ed B-BBEE Socio-Skills Optimisation and Mentoring Model is an innovative solution for organisations needing to improve on their B-BBEE Rating in terms of the Amended B-BBEE Codes and the various Sector Scorecards – through integrating internal skills development solutions with external nation building initiatives.
Mentoring 4 Success is a Level 2 B-BBEE Contributor for Procurement purposes.
This Nation Building through Knowledge Mentoring™ approach offers organisations an ability to optimise Skills Development spend (Code 300) with mandatory Enterprise and Supplier Development donations (Code 400) as well as Socio-Economic donations (Code 500) though the Inkaba Knowledge Mentoring Academy and the Inkaba Education and Development Trust.
In November of 2018, Dr. Hofmeyr, National Director of StudyTrust approached Phillip Marsh and Mentoring 4 Success for the purpose of exploring a potential relationship that could give affordable and sponsored access to a pilot group of over 1000 students across 17 learning institutions in South Africa. This initiative has unlocked the life-transforming benefits of collaborative student mentoring and support provided in widely dispersed, peer-to-peer and peer-to-professional relationships of trust, as well as the StudyTrust head office team. Common values and a shared passion to make a meaningful difference at scale ensured that the KnowledgeMentor™ App roll out became a reality in just a few weeks.

The multi-sectoral model for these Enterprise and Supplier Development mentoring initiatives are focused on the large-scale Mobile Knowledge Mentoring of dispersed groups of unemployed black female graduates, unemployed black graduates and young professionals, sole proprietor and self-employed young black professionals and black SMME’s, who wish to participate more effectively in mainstream business opportunities through pervasive Mobile Knowledge Mentoring and collaborative relationships with mentors and subject matter experts and thereby create more jobs and effective national growth and opportunity for all.
In accordance with the Academy Vision and Purpose Statement and the requirements for NPC’s / PBO’s, the Academy relies solely on donations and grants and has no operational trading capability and is thus able to offer donors exciting nation building opportunities for their mandatory Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) donations in terms of Code 400 of the Amended B-BBEE Codes. All donations and grants will therefore receive a Section 18(a) tax certificate. Furthermore, the initiative is recognised by two leading B-BBEE Verification Agencies as well as SARS as being fully compliant with Code 400 of the Amended B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice.
