Apply Online for SETA Learnerships via the Department of Labour and Employment

If you are an unemployed youth under the age of 35 then apply for SETA learnerships.

Learnerships for the unemployed are funded via SETAs.

As a result, employers can obtain grants to host SETA learnerships at their businesses.

They also receive generous tax rebates and BEE points.

You can find learnerships in any industry.

Click here to understand how learnerships prepare you for industry.

How do SETA Learnerships get Funding?

So each Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) has a skills development budget to develop skills in industries.

The SETAs obtain their funding from the Skills Development Levy (SDL).

Employers contribute to the levy and as a result, they can claim Tax rebates.

This means employers get benefits when training the unemployed on SETA Learnerships.

Applications for SETA Learnerships 2024 with Stipend

Learners receive a stipend for the duration of the learnership and also obtain a qualification for free.

Although a stipend is lower than a normal wage for a similar job, it is not below the minimum wage rate.

Never Pay SETA Learnership Registration Fees Anywhere!

Note that learnership applicants never pay application fees at real learnership providers.

When a training provider or recruiter requests a fee, they are bogus.

Therefore, please don’t pay administration fees, registration fees, or recruiters. Read: No Learnership Fees For Unemployed Learners Allowed

6 Steps: SETA Learnerships 2024 Online Application

Side note: If you are already registered on a learnership, never just drop out to register for another.

Rather resign correctly.

Then you can obtain your statement of results and employment certificate.

Afterward, you can transfer the credits you earned to another learnership.

How to Apply for SETA Learnerships or Apprenticeships

The Department of Labour requires unemployed people to register as work-seekers.

You must look for employers offering learnerships and then prepare a CV and gather relevant application documents.

Steps for Unemployed Job Seekers: How to Join a SETA Learnership

Step 1: Decide what job skills you want to learn Then Look for Matching SETA Learnerships

Firstly, think about the kind of training and job you want.

For example, if you like the outdoors, do not apply for office jobs

Note that different SETAs represent different industries.

For example, the MICT SETA funds learnerships for IT and Media.

But the Services SETA funds hairdressing, management, business administration and many more.

You can apply for learnerships funded by any SETA so explore them all!

Step 2: Register as work-seeker

Unemployed job seekers must register as work-seekers at their nearest labour centre or online.

This helps employers to find them when they want to offer a learnership.

Step 4: Draw up a Learnership CV

Draw up a learnership CV that gives:

  • Personal details: name, date of birth, etc.
  • Education: school attended and qualifications.
  • Work experience: names of employers and what you did.
  • Other skills: driver’s license, computer skills, etc.
  • Referees: state you can provide names and contact details.

Organizations use CV screening software to read your digital application documents before humans do.

Avoid wasting time on an application that won’t be read

Step 6: Keep your details updated

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

Applying for SETA Learnerships and Apprenticeships

Learnerships and apprenticeships are specifically government-endorsed training programs. They therefore connect a Training provider, an Employer and a Learner in a contractual relationship.

Sometimes the Training Provider and Employer are the same organization. Check out the latest list of registered Learnership Qualifications at this link. Then you can research the qualifications you’re interested in and find training providers.

A learnership or apprenticeship qualification is an opportunity to learn and earn. Good luck and always be careful!

What are the advantages of SETA Learnerships?

1. You Obtain a Recognised Qualification for Free on a Learnership

How much value do you place on free education and practical workplace experience?! I’m sure we agree that it’s priceless! :) Learnerships are recognized because they are structured, SAQA-registered learning programs.

So just like a degree completed at a university or college, the qualification you receive on a learnership is recognized nationally. The key difference is that learnerships create a process for gaining theoretical knowledge and practical skills while at a workplace.

This means learners don’t attend lectures and theoretical assignments that take up most of their time but learn by practising workplace tasks.

2. Learnerships Provide Formal Employment Experience

Participating in a learnership means you may attend classes off-site (at a college or training centre) or onsite (when trainers come to the company).

But this is usually only for a few days each month.

Learners’ on-the-job training (practical workplace experience) is also relevant to the qualification

Note that learners have the same rights as permanent employees but without long-term employment benefits.

3. Experience Employer and Job Culture Reality on a Learnership

But be warned, experiencing jobs, employers and organizational culture may be enough to put you off employment forever! When joining a learnership, you experience what having a real job is like.

Don’t be surprised if you’re inspired to be an entrepreneur instead of a worker slave.

As a result, a learnership is a great opportunity if you are placed with a great employer.

Unfortunately, most often a company offers a learnership just so that they can earn BEE points and tax rebates. They don’t really care about you, but we do! :)

4. Learnerships Offer Employers Benefits Too

Employers can obtain funding to host learnerships at their businesses as a result of the Skills Development Levy (SDL).

Furthermore, they also obtain BEE points and can claim back the money they paid to learners.

Good luck in your pursuit of a learnership and a fulfilling career!

    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!
