List Of All Available Learnerships In South Africa 2020 – 2021

What is Learnerships?

A learnership is a work-based learning programme that leads to an NQF registered qualification. Learnerships are directly related to an occupation or field of work, for example, electrical engineering, hairdressing or project management.

Learnerships are managed by the Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs). They were introduced by the government to help skill learners and to prepare them for the workplace.

Learnership programmes can help you to gain the necessary skills and workplace experience that will open up better employment or self-employment opportunities.

Learnerships are based on a legally binding agreement between an employer, a learner and a Training Provider. This agreement is intended to spell out the tasks and duties of the employer, the learner and the Training Provider. It is designed to ensure the quality of the training and to protect the interests of each party.

Who qualifies for learnerships?

Learnerships are available for young people between the ages of 16-35, who have completed school, college or learning at other training institutions. Unemployed South Africans can only participate in a Learnership if there is an employer prepared to provide the required work experience.

How Do Learnerships Work?

In the past, the education given in schools and other education facilities did not really have much in common with the working world. This meant that people entered the workplace with all of the knowledge but none of the practical experience on how to do the job.

In-house training given at companies did exactly the opposite; it taught the “how-to” do certain tasks without the “why” they needed to be done. To do any job effectively, one needs to know both.

Learnerships teach both the “why” and the “how-to” by creating a contract between the learner, the learning provider, and the organisation or business. All learnership contracts must be registered with the Sector Education Training Authority (SETA) for that specific industry, which guarantees that the learnership is of a high standard.

If accepted into a learnership you will have to sign two legal contracts; a Learnership Agreement and an Employment Contract. The Learnership Agreement tells you exactly what responsibilities you, the training provider and the employer have. The Employment Contract is only for the period of the learnership. Learnerships last between 12 -24 months.

If you are unemployed, you will receive an allowance while you are on a learnership which is meant to cover costs like travel and food. If you are already employed you will only receive your normal salary.

During the learnership, you will spend a certain period in a classroom, either at the company or organization or at other premises, and the rest of the time working and learning on the job at the company. It is important that you take advantage of the opportunity offered you to develop your skills, gain experience and grow your potential. A learnership is the perfect way to show the trainers and the organization what you know, as it could lead to a permanent job with that company or organisation, so take your learnership seriously.

You will be expected to do certain written and practical tasks while on the learnership as part of your studies. Learnerships are outcomes-based, which means that you will be assessed (tested) on what you have learned through the various stages of the learnership, not only at the end of it.
You will get an official certificate that will state the qualification, and indicate the area in which you have developed skills during the learnership if you are considered to be competent at the end of it. This qualification is nationally recognized.

Completing a learnership is not a guarantee of employment, but many learners do get employed by companies or organisations where they did their learnerships. Even if that company does not employ you, you stand a much better chance of getting employed with a learnership qualification than without one.

How much do learnerships pay?

During the learnership, a monthly stipend is given. Funding for a learnership is around R45 500, and R2000 is given to learner as a stipend during the program.

How long is a Learnership?

Learnerships will last as long as it takes to complete the qualification. This means that if the duration of the qualification is two years, then the learnership will last for that period.
