What is a learnership?
A learnership is a work-based learning programme that leads to a qualification that is registered in the National Qualifications Framework. Learnerships are directly related to an occupation or field of work, for example, bookkeeping or office administration. The aims of learnerships are to address the challenges of:
Unequal access to education and training, and employment opportunities
The effects of race, gender and geographical location on educational advancement;
and over and above the skills shortages in South Africa.
Who qualifies for a learnership?
Learnerships are available for those who have completed school, college, or learning at other training institutions, or for those who are studying part-time. Unemployed South Africans can participate in a learnership programme if there is an employer who is prepared to provide the required work experience.
What does a learner receive on completion?
During the Learnership, learners will be required to complete assignments, tasks, and practical tests and projects. They will be formally assessed in the classroom and workplace.
If all the assignments are completed successfully, they will be awarded an NQF-registered qualification, which is recognized nationally. They will receive a certificate stating the qualification and the area of skill development.
What is required to enter into a Learnership?
If a learner is accepted, he/she will need to sign two legal documents:
Learnership Agreement: this is an agreement signed by the learner, the organization employing the learner, and the education provider offering the theoretical training component of the Learnership. This agreement clearly outlines the rights and responsibilities of all three parties.
Employment contract: this is a contract they will sign with the employer, which is only valid for the time period of the Learnership.
