Learnership Motivation Letter Tip: Make Lack of Experience An Advantage

  • No work experience’ won’t stop the employer from placing you on a learnership when they believe you have the right attitude. Therefore mention your enthusiasm for learning and gaining experience.
  • Turn your lack of experience into an advantage. When is lack of experience or no experience at all an advantage? When you have no former experience, you’re more open to learning from the best! (i.e. the current employer). In addition, it means you have no bad work habits to unlearn and will be more receptive to what your first employer wants you to achieve.

Learnership Tip: Take Advantage of Business Pain Points

18.2 Learnership Job Training for ‘No Experience’ Applicants

Category 18.1 Learnerships are for the employed but learnerships for unemployed are category 18.2.

A learnership is a job training programme implemented at a workplace. Therefore learnerships result in tax benefits for employers. While candidates obtain an occupational certificate and are employed for the duration of the learnership.

Motivation to Apply for Learnerships or Jobs Even if You Lack Experience

If you spot an advert for a learnership or even a job that appeals to you but you lack the experience for it, apply anyway. Just go for it! Because even if you don’t get it, the routine of preparing an application and trying to secure an interview is very good practice. In addition. there’s no telling when your well-prepared motivational letter will break through that barrier. Eventually, the right recruiter and employer will take a chance on you. (Yes you!)

If you have no work experience, a great attitude can get you in.

Give organisations excellent reasons to take you on.

Video Learnership Cover Letter Summary

1. What are Learnership Cover Letters and Motivational Letters for?

A motivation letter and a cover letter are both types of letters that are used to apply for a job or educational opportunity. Your letter is a brief and compact document that usually accompanies your CV when you apply for a job. Therefore it is typically one page long and is used to introduce yourself to the employer and highlight your qualifications for the position.

2. Learnership Cover Letter Purpose

A cover letter must always be tailored to the specific job you are applying for and should explain why you are a good fit for the position. It should also include information about your relevant skills and experience, as well as your enthusiasm for the job. Read our post on writing learnership resignation letters to see an example of how important fitting in is.

3. The learnership cover letter is your personal advert. 

Sell your skills and enthusiasm for the position. For advice on how to structure cover letters read Write Cover Letters for Learnerships.

  • Start a CV your cover letter and CV must be customised for each position you apply for.

Two key rules for writing a learnership cover letter when you have no experience:

  1. Understand the company culture and job requirements
  2. Research the qualification, if the advert did not include a SAQA qualification ID then it is not a legitimate learnership.

These rules are important even when you do have experience!

Video Learnership Cover Letter Advice

You use a learnership motivational letter to persuasively state your reasons for applying and motivate for your selection.

It is typically longer than a cover letter and provides a more detailed explanation of your interest in the programme. A learnership motivation letter can include information about your personal goals and career aspirations. It’s important to state your relevant experiences and qualifications if you have them.

Sometimes graduates are preferred, but not always. Graduates can be selected as learnerships offer them work experience and already have a study track record. However, learnership qualifications don’t always appeal to university and college graduates.

Learnerships are a means to gain a specific job qualification. Graduates and those who have never studied beyond high school each have a fair shot at being selected.
