Learnership applicants do not pay for anything. There is no administration or registration fee and no payment must be made to recruiters.
Only complete forms on SETA, Government Department and reliable business websites.
Do not trust a link to an application form that is not from an official site. There are people who set up fake learnership links just to be able to get information from you.
Learnerships are government endorsed training programs that link the SETA, Training provider, Employer and Learner in a contractual relationship. Sometimes the Training Provider and Employer are the same organisation.
Either way, a learnership and apprenticeship is an opportunity to learn and earn.
What is a Learnership?
A learnership is a structured learning program, just like a qualification you could do at a university or college. It includes a process for gaining theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a workplace. The qualification you receive is registered on the NQF and recognised nationally.
Learners participating in a learnership have to attend classes at a college or training centre to complete classroom-based learning. They also have to complete on-the-job training in a workplace. The workplace experience must be relevant to the qualification. These learners have the same rights as a permanent or full-time employees but without the benefits.
