Learnerships

Answer

A learnership is a learning programme registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training, which consists of a structured learning component, a practical work experience component of a specified nature and duration, and which leads to a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework that is related to an occupation. It is based on an agreement entered into between the learner, the institution and the employer. 

 

Where can I apply for a learnership?

 

Learnerships are often advertised by the different training providers that are accredited to offer registered qualifications by the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO). The accredited training providers work together with the 21 Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs).
