Never had a chance to study? Learnerships are for unemployed and employed candidates.

SETAs Are Responsible for Learnerships

If you are unemployed, capable of learning and hungry for job experience, find and apply for Learnerships.

The unemployed receive free training that results in an industry recognized qualification and a stipend. While you are on the Learnership, you will be employed at a company and be required to meet on-the-job expectations.

At the end of your learnership, if you have impressed the company that offered it to you, you could become employed by them. If not,  you will be able to use your qualification to find a job at another company.

An 18.2 Learnership program is one which specifically targets the unemployed.

Research Tips for Unemployed Applicants 

  1. You must decide which industry you want to work in or which  job position you wish to have. You may have the answer to both, which is great!
  2. Look for the SETAs that represent the industries you want to work in. Different SETAs represent different qualification and job opportunities.

Matching the Job to a Qualification

  1. If you want a job that exists in all industries, then you are looking for a qualification that has transferable skills. Sometimes these skills are also referred to as generic. Many of these qualifications are managed by the Services SETA. Review their qualifications, see if anything appeals to you. Nothing? then:
  2. Visit each SETA website and go through their qualifications until you have a list of 3 – 5 that you would like to do. You must know which qualifications you are interested in if you want someone to help you.

People often contact a SETA without really knowing what to ask. Try following these tips if you are unemployed and looking for a Learnership.

Contact the relevant SETA and ask the following:

  1. Please put me through to your Learnership department. Once there, ask:
  2. Hi, who am I speaking to please? Write their name down. Then say, ‘Thank you‘ and ask:
  3. What 18.2 learnerships are available and who is the service provider? If they can’t tell you, ask:
  4. How can I register for 18.2 Learnerships in your sector? If they say they don’t know, say:
  5. Would you like my contact details in case you do come across a solution? Regardless of their response, tell them:
  6. Thank you, I will inform the DHET that you have been unable to assist and support me in a meaningful way.

    The Cross Pollinating Project Nomad Jan 26, 2013 at 9:44 am

    Hi there! Unfortunately I can’t contact you each time there’s a learnership as I don’t work for the SETA but offer advice to people just because I know some stuff and care. But I also want to say that it’s no use expecting an easy solution, you need to move and find information. Make contact with training companies, send them your CV etc. I can see that you believe in yourself and that’s important, keep at it.

Pretty Jan 23, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    The Cross Pollinating Project Nomad Jan 23, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    Hey learnership seekers! please contact the relevant SETA about who the service providers are. A service provider is the organisation responsible for recruiting learners and conducting (doing) the training. Please keep visiting this site for advice and information. Best wishes, Leonie Hall

    The Cross Pollinating Project Nomad Jan 26, 2013 at 9:38 am

    Hey Pretty!
    You sound very enthusiastic and this is going to take you far! It sounds like you know what you want and what you need to do.
    The Lehae Primary school has a soccer team that’s rocking. How about making contact, see if you can assist them in any way and get career advice from the coach.
    Learnerships get advertised publicly – in newspapers and online so keep doing research. Call the SETA and find out who the training providers are and make contact with them!
    Best wishes…Leonie Hall

    The Cross Pollinating Project Nomad Apr 1, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    Hi Themba
    You sound like you want to progress in life but have a few issues.
    If you do a learnership, you will receive valuable training for free AND be paid a small stipend – anything between R800 – R4000 (it depends on who funds the learnership). You are expected to use this money to arrive on time for training and to be able to feed yourself. If you are willing to live on the little money you get from doing the learnership – DO IT!
    If you’d prefer to pay to do a part time course somewhere – get another job so that maybe you can earn more and do a course you’re willing to pay for.
    Best wishes!

    Cross Pollinating Project Nomad Jan 21, 2015 at 12:30 pm

    Hi Thuso! Sorry to hear about that! Please contact the MQA yourself. I found these contacts on the MQA site. Ask one of them who you speak to about Learnership Certification. You need to check with this person that the training provider has had your POE externally moderated by the SETA. If your work has not been externally moderated you cannot be certified. Good luck and let us know!

Apiwe Bhekiwe Feb 5, 2015 at 9:35 pm

I passed my N6 in Human Resource Management last year, i got a call on Thursday, last week from my Student Support Services from my College, request me to come at Mthatha General Hospital to do In-service Training for 18 months in order for me to get my Diploma and said i’ll get a Stipend of R3 800 per month.

Today i met Mr. S Simane from my College, who is resposibly to take of the money from SETA to provide students that are currently doing In-service Trainin, he said SETA didn’t reply to his application and said i’ll not get any cent and i must forget about the Stipend.

I talked him that i don’t have money to proceed with this In-serve becourse of Rent(1000) and Transport(R400) per month and no one is working at home i helped by child support, he said he have no other option.

Now my parents took a decision for me live the In-serve and come back home becourse they don’t have money to provide me, please help i don’t know what can i do now, i really need the In-service Training.

    Cross Pollinating Project Nomad Feb 11, 2015 at 8:10 am

    Hi Apiwe, I’m sorry to hear about your challenges which you have so clearly explained. I’ve visited the HW SETA website ( ) and I see they are telling learners to be careful when enrolling with private service providers. You need to explain your situation to them. Follow that link and make a few calls. Please write down the name of the person you speak with and what they say.

    Hi Thobeka
    I understand your frustration. Do you know which SETA is funding the program? Find out and contact them directly or go to the Department of Labour. You are considered an employee whilst on a Learnership and can use the legislation to protect yourself or settle disputes.

    Hi Sizwe. You must find your own learnership as no one else can do it for you. Read the Learnership articles on this site to understand how to do it. Do not be lazy, do not wait for god, it’s your life so success is your responsibility. Make it happen! You can do it!!!!

Babalwa Apr 29, 2015 at 10:43 am

I would like to know what provision do you have for people that have experience but do not have formal qualifications. And are out of jobs. For instance I am 38 years and have 12 years experience in retail from cashier , accounts clerk , sales person and financial services manager but I am looking for a job now I do not seem to fit in management positions. Any help or advice please

    1bigLEO Jun 3, 2015 at 7:43 am

    Hi Babalwa
    Truth is there are people looking for someone just like you. It’s a numbers game, you need to make yourself accessible to as many organisations as possible. Set up an awesome profile on Linkedin. Send connection requests to everyone you find in HR and recruitment. If you want a job within the next two months, you must apply for a job pretty much EVERYDAY. MAKE YOURSELF VISIBLE. Best wishes!

We dont get paid in kwadukuza umfolozi college chief Albert luthuli campus money that is funded by Contraction SETA the took it from February contact me on 0710308480/0734950756

    1bigLEO Jun 3, 2015 at 7:38 am

    Hi Sphesihle, learnership people are considered employed for the duration of their contract. You can therefor go to the CCMA and Department of Labour to lodge a dispute and request mediation.

itumeleng May 19, 2015 at 5:24 pm

I would like to be informed everytime there are learnerships.

    1bigLEO Jun 3, 2015 at 7:36 am

    Lots of people do.

dineo ngwetjana May 26, 2015 at 6:08 am

i just finished my level 3 of manufacturing and design in jewellery at slji.i like to know about age difference if the learnership they have to drop the over 35 years learners?

    1bigLEO Jun 3, 2015 at 7:30 am

    Noooo Dineo! I’ve actually had a lovely young man at the age of 60 on a learnership! Older learners bring dignity and perseverance to the program, they usually put the ‘lighties’ in their place! 🙂 There’s no age discrimination but the funding may not be the same as government really wants to get the youth trained and employed.

    Companies can offer learnerships and internships. Internships are EXCELLENT for people who have the qualification but no experience. GOOD LUCK!!!!

yoza Jun 2, 2015 at 9:43 pm

Good evening

On 10th February 2015 I joined LGSETA programme. I was thrilled, because I’ll start working and getting experience… The HR officer Mr Koyana from Port St John’s Municipality placed me in a local school to be a teacher,nbut I have a national diploma in business management. Not EDUCATION. He told the school principal to make use of me,they will pay. We signed incomplete contracts. We were never told how much we gonna receive per month. On May they called a meeting. Told us that the money is not there yet. And Graduates will earn R3500 pm. People with certificate R1800 and people who are doing plumbing. They told us that we’ll be back payed from March,because the programme supposedto start on March. 01 June they deposited R5400. To my surprise I phoned the HR officer. He asked me in a rude manner”ain’t you an FET graduate”?. I said yes. And he said “so ke sisi the FET diploma is not the same as University Diploma. That’s why you’re getting R1800.” I want to know SETA People are you making us LESS educated? He said its Seta’s decision to discriminate agaainst us like this… and he said we are not employed. We are getting exposure… We are to work for another 3-4 months with no pay…. stressed. I spend R1000 for transport monthly. I teach Economic and management science grades 7,8 & 9. English 7 & 8 and Life orientation grade 7. It is too much.

    1bigLEO Jun 3, 2015 at 7:21 am

    Hi Yoza
    We feel your pain. This website is not written by a SETA, we are just individuals who want to help people with rock solid advice. You are not supposed to feel discriminated against – but you don’t explain exactly which qualification and which NQF Level you studied on. Remember it takes a university graduate 3 years to get a degree, if you only studied 1 year on a learnership at NQFL4 you may have earned credits towards a degree but not a full degree. We don’t want you ruining what ever opportunity you might have. We need more details from you, please send your email so that we can follow up. Leonie

    1bigLEO Jun 3, 2015 at 7:25 am

    Please remember that as you are an employee, if you are unhappy with your employment – the CCMA and Department of Labour are there to assist you by law.

Nemalinda Ipfi Jun 9, 2015 at 10:08 pm

I have applied for seta learnership and the contac i applied with is an mtn number which is currently not in use as the mtn service is not working because they are still on strike and i’d like to be notified about any relevant information on my new numbers which are 076 2289 ###.
I’ll be pleased to see the progress of this application.

    1bigLEO Jun 10, 2015 at 7:14 pm

    Hi Nemalinda, this site does not belong to a SETA. Subscribe to this blog to recieve articles. Keep looking for learnerships and keep applying. There is no easy way, you must keep working at it.

    Hey Nompumelelo, we’d like you to tell your story on the Keep Climbing blog.

Nomanene Jul 16, 2015 at 5:32 am

Am doing my in-service traing and i’ve been told by my service provider from my collage that am going to be funded by agriSeta R3750 the application has been successful i sent all the required document later on he said my boss must send Tax clearance certificate, bank details of the farm& contract between the two parties my boss did everything and he promised as on the 5 june the money will be deposited bt till to date the money is not deposited when am calling him he dont answer my calls. I started on the 2 April 2015 and he told me the good news on the 15 May. My in-serve is based on Farming Management i completed my N6. i sent him an sms asking if my boss is allowed to do followup from agriseta he said no am also not allowed. please help me because am working veryhard here for nothing but i dont complain about the work because is the carreer that i’ve choose require more work i just hate the fact that he said am going to be funded the application is successful and i had hope.

    1bigLEO Jul 16, 2015 at 8:59 am

    Dear Nomanene, if you are on a learnership you are considered an employee protected by the Department of Labour and our labour laws. Register a complaint with them. Your employer may be part of the problem or they may also be unsure about what to do. SETAS work for both of you and get into trouble when this type of confusion happens. If you and your employer work together you will get better results. The SETA often takes long to pay, your boss must find out from them if something is wrong as they often don’t communicate. What you’re doing is important. Please don’t give up.

klaas nolly Jul 18, 2015 at 10:44 pm

im doing inservice training at hospital ..i dont get any stipend i would like you to help me..when im asking at skul they said Seta
did nt pay even last yr leaners ..

letitia Jul 21, 2015 at 12:16 pm

Good day

Trust this detail finds you well.

I am facing a bit of a challenge registering as a SDF on the SETA website.
I am particularly interested in Culture Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sports SETA.
I am not employed,and there is a section where you need to fill in your employers details. Am I able to register as a SDF when I’m unemployed. I am certified,on NQF 5 level. Institution attended: MNA

Please advise.

Letitia Martin
079 727 6677

    1bigLEO Jul 21, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    Hey Letitia! You have two options #1 Register your own business or simply drop your own details in the employer section #2 get a job and request to perform the SDF function at your new job. But you see the problem? The SETA wants active SDF operatives, not armchair ones. So that’s why they need to know who you work for.

    letitia Jul 22, 2015 at 11:22 am

    Hi Leo,thanks for the feed back.
    I will do the ‘my details’ in the employment bracket and see if it will go through. Also I sent out an email yesterday with regard to 18.2 learnerships. What is the turn around time on feed back?

    1bigLEO Jul 22, 2015 at 11:32 am

    Turnaround is relative to each SETA and if they are under administration or not. What ever you want – give chase but do it with a smile, they are used to fobbing off upset people so it’s no good to be aggrieved. If you really need to push for something urgently, set up a meeting, take CUPCAKES and ooze charm and determination.

Lebogang Jul 24, 2015 at 4:31 pm

I would like to inquire about the learnership of hair dressing course here in Potchefstroom Academy Tina Scholz North West, it falls under which department?

I was studing for security at lemoshanang in attridgeville but they didnt gv me my certificate at sasseta nd my follower students got them except me

    1bigLEO Aug 4, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    Hi Constance, sorry to hear that! You don’t say if your POE was assessed and if you knew your results. If you submitted your POE, ask the learnership manager where your certificate is. If you believe you are being unfairly discriminated against (treated badly) – take it straight to the CCMA and the Department of labour. If you have earned your certificate then do whatever you need to do to get it. If you have completed the learnership and do not have a job – complain to the SETA and contact the Councillor in your area.

zikhona Aug 6, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    Leonie Hall Sep 1, 2015 at 9:55 am

    Dear Lebogang, I’m so sorry to hear about your experience. Since you have signed the contracts you are considered an employee and are required to be paid weekly or monthly as per legislation requirements. Please go straight to the CCMA and / or the Department of Labour and report your complaint. You can also call the Services SETA whistle blower number (means you’re exposing a problem they MUST know about) to explain your problem: 0861101148
    Best wishes, Leo

    You have three choices
    1. Rob the people who have stipends and then get expelled and lose out on a qualification
    2. Complain to the people who pay the stipends
    3. Lodge a complaint with the SETA and the Department of Labour.
    Your choice – let me know! (I would choose 2 first)

If I were you, I’d look for other opportunities. You must never sit around and wait for one thing to fall into your lap. You should have at least 5 opportunities lined up – why are you sitting around waiting for this one when clearly it may not happen? Haaibo!!! Get up and start climbing young man!!!

How would propose this or what contact would you suggest- we are a training academy in Hairdressing- wanting to get funding to train people from NQF 2-4. Where would you suggest we start. SSETA only gives Internship in KZN and there was no Hairdressing taught for the past 2 years. Which other funding grant would be available for economic development. I have over 50 students who cannot afford the finance to learn- please provide me with some guidance.

    Leonie Hall Feb 28, 2016 at 6:34 am

    Thank you for your comment Sharlene, contact the Department of Labour as they support initiatives that promote employment opportunities. Consider framing your work in the space of entrepreneurship and research own business development opportunities for hairdressing. Look at ways to expand your business focus. Leo

Good morning I have a qualification in Human resource but my passion is IT how can I get a leanership opportunity?

    Hi Fana! please read our posts about finding a learnership. There are many links to training providers on this site and advice on how to register with the Department of Labour. ultimately, noone has one straight aswer for you – you need to do the work – research, write countless letters and promote yourself. No opportunity will find you – you must find the opportunity. Start with this blog and read read read.

Hi Leonie
I am wanting to start a programme to train domestic workers. I have found over the years that these poor domestics are not trained properly so end up loosing there jobs in a couple of months. I would like to start a school were I will teach them all about housework, chemical uses, first aid and your basic cooking skills. How do I go about applying through Seta to be signed up and is there a person or office in the Durban area I could visit to have a chat to a Seta representative. Kind regards Vanessa

Given the free time i get, i took a precaution to start working at Dr Js Moroka local municipality, but i am volunteering. from what i heard, LGSETA remunerate students for apprenticeship so i’m eager to learn on the job training and seeking advise of the remuneration procedure. Your detailed respond will be highly appreciated.

bonakele Sep 18, 2016 at 6:37 am

hello can you please help me out, how do I know that I still belong to a relevant seta, I was on a learnership but it ended so badly that I end getting a new learnership ahead of the old one … I heard that the seta won’t approve my new learnership under ewseta since the contract with merseta on previous learnership is still not terminated. so how do I cancel my previous agreement with seta.

    Leonie Hall Sep 20, 2016 at 1:54 pm

    Hi Bonakele! As a result of your great question and a similar one from a company, I’m going to write a post about this. Once done, I’ll send you the link. Leonie

    bonakele Sep 21, 2016 at 3:46 am

    Leonie Hall Oct 17, 2016 at 4:36 pm

    Hi Russell! I share info on this blog, and on Facebook and Twitter. Please make sure you follow me there so you can be updated. Don’t give up and don’t waste your time waiting for people to get back to you. Most companies are very bad at letting you know what’s happened with your application. Keep looking for opportunities and make sure you read our posts about writing cover letters and preparing for interviews. Best wishes Leo

Sanelisiwe Makhathini Mar 17, 2017 at 2:30 pm

Im 20 years old ,im doing inservice without any stipend if you can,please help me

    Leonie Hall Apr 13, 2017 at 7:52 am

    You need to negotiate with the people you are working for – if you offered to work for free so that you could qualify then you must prioritise and make sacrifices in order to achieve your goal. If you were a strong student with great results then you should be able to negotiate, in-service doesn’t mean you are entitled to a stipend.

Pierre Eksteen Jul 24, 2017 at 2:39 pm

Good day Leonie,

Thank you very much for all your hard and devoted work, to better the lives of the masses. I authored a life skills book for youth and want to educate our young people on sound morals and good business practices. I am a part-time Educator and recently employed by a innovative College to head 2 of their branches. We offer free scholarships to unemployed under-28 year old individuals. I want to train recruiters to recruit students and study for free at the same time. Where can I require financial assistance from SETA’s to pay the incumbents a salary whilst marketing/recruiting, much like an internship for a year? Your guidance will be truly appreciated.

    Leonie Hall Jul 27, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Hi Pierre
    Thank you so much for the support!
    Difficult to provide a direct answer to you as I don’t know who you’re accredited by and I’m a little confused about the organisational structure. I’m not sure if you’re asking about salaries for professional recruiters, or ‘stipends’ for students, or if you’re saying that the campuses are run by learners in exchange for a free education? I’d also need to know the type of programme they are on. Is this a learnership?
    I’m asking because SETAs don’t fund salaries – they fund industry based development interventions and stipends where applicable, but there are certain criteria.
    Post your feedback here and I’ll see if I can help you further.
    Warmest regards

Katlego Aug 3, 2017 at 6:00 pm

Hello ma’am.I’ve just received an sms informing me about film & TV learnership but other students who went for the interview said there’s no stipend end offered. It’s that possible, I mean it’s a learnership not a skill development programme.

    Leonie Hall Aug 9, 2017 at 1:21 pm

    Hi Katlego
    If you have a copy of the contract please send it to me so I can advise you correctly. Sounds very dodge.

nagenb Sep 26, 2017 at 4:31 am
