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 trustworthy business websites. 

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.


What the Department of Labor Advises About Learnership Applications

6 Steps: How To Join a Learnership if you are Unemployed 

The following advice has been extracted from the Department of Labour website.

  Unemployed people must register as work-seekers. They must also look for employers and prepare a CV.


Many people don’t know this information!

[social_share style=”bar” align=”horizontal” heading_align=”inline” text=”” heading=”Free this information! Please share!” facebook=”1″ twitter=”1″ google_plus=”1″ linkedin=”1″ pinterest=”0″ link=”” /]


If unemployed people want to join a learnership they must take the following steps:

Step 1: Decide what skills you want

Think about the kind of training and job you are looking for. E.g. if you like the outdoors, do not apply for office jobs. 
See this list of the SETAs for learnerships.
Different SETAs represent different industries. For example, the MICT SETA funds learnerships for IT and Media. The Services SETA funds hairdressing, management, business administration and many more.

Step 2: Register as work-seeker

Unemployed people must register as work-seekers at their nearest labour centre. This will help employers to find them if they want to start a learnership.

Register As A Work-Seeker 

The following links will take you to Labor Centre contact details for each province:

Step 3: Find employers that offer learnerships

Contact SETAs to find out which employers offer learnerships. Ask friends and family to look out for openings and watch adverts in newspapers.

For a list of SETA websites go here.

Step 4: Draw up a CV

Draw up a CV that gives –
  • personal details; (name, date of birth, etc.)
  • education; (school attended and qualifications)
  • work experience; (names of earlier employers and what you did)
  • other skills; and (driver’s license, computer skills, etc.)
  • referees. (names and contact details of people who know you well)
Think of the kind of questions you may be asked. Practice with a friend.

Step 6: Keep your details updated

Keep in contact with your labor centre and update your details when they change.

    Leonie Hall Jan 9, 2018 at 2:27 pm

    Hi Lynn
    A range of opportunities are offered everywhere. It’s important you search through the networks to identify suitable opportunities. You also need to conduct a background check on the training provider to check their accreditation is in order. Corruption and exploitation is rife so you must carefully scrutinize each opportunity.
    When we find great opportunities for you we publish them here on the blog. Please follow Keep Climbing for updates and to join the family.
    All the best!
