Learnerships

WHAT IS A LEARNERSHIP?

“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.

Learnerships promote access to education and training as they
allow you to work and start your career while also studying for an
accredited qualification.

A Learnership programme means that a learner studies theory while simultaneously completing practical assignments in the workplace, this enhances learning and exposure to a work environment.

BENEFITS OF A LEARNERSHIP TO AN EMPLOYER

  • Learnerships are developed by the industry for the industry,
    in consultation with all relevant stakeholders, so the learning
    programme and qualification of the Learner is relevant to the
    specific occupation.
  • Learnerships create an opportunity for companies to collaborate with training providers, allowing customisation of learning programmes which meet specific workplace needs.

WHAT IS A LEARNERSHIP?

  • Learnerships improved skills and work performance. As employees will be acquiring new knowledge and skills and applying these in the workplace, companies will be raising the skills levels of employees while improving work performance.
  • Productivity improvement as employees will have the skills and knowledge required.
  • Less supervision time because employees have been exposed to the work environment and already understand the processes.
  • Employees will see the Learnership as an investment in their future, and they will be more likely to give back to the organisation by being loyal.
  • As training programmes that combine theory and relevant practical elements, Learnerships create skilled people.
  • By entering into Learnerships with unemployed people, companies contribute to South Africa’s global economic competitiveness.
  • Employers will be able to select employees from a wider pool of appropriately qualified workers who have developed skills that are relevant to the company’s specific work context.
