What is a Learnership?

A learnership is a training programme that includes both theoretical and practical components. Training is conducted over a 12 to18 month period with the goal of developing specific skills or competencies leading to a National Qualifications Framework (NQF) registered full qualification, directly relating to an occupation, managed by Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETA’s) A learnership involves three major players:

  • The Learner

Every learnership will have prerequisites that the learner must meet to be considered for the opportunity.

  • The Employer

The employer is responsible for sponsoring and providing the work experience component of the learnership. Learners will receive workplace training, guidance, and mentoring to help them understand and carry out their roles in the organization for the duration of their learnership.

  • The Training Provider

The training provider "provides the learner with theoretical or institutional training in accordance with the qualification." This is done in a classroom or online setting, similar to traditional learning institutions.
