What is a learnership?
A learnership is a work-based learning program 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 Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs). They were introduced by government to help skill learners and to prepare them for the workplace.
Learnership programs 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.
A learnership requires that a learner enter into a fixed-term employment contract with the company whilst studying towards a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), which is in line with the learnership (the cost of the qualification falls to the Company). Once the qualification is completed, the learnership will also end.
Why are learnerships important?
Learnerships promote access to education and training, as they allow you to work and get started on your career while also studying for educational qualification.
