The Benefit of Writing a Learnership Thank You Letter

According to Forbes,

“When you express gratitude or offer recognition you should never expect something in return,” says Cataldo. “Otherwise, the gratitude or recognition can come off as forced and inauthentic…If this is ever a concern, always establish your intention, and make sure it’s a genuine one, before giving recognition or expressing gratitude.”

Tips to add your Thanks: Learnership Thank You Letter

Template 2 Thank the Training Provider

The training provider is the organisation that issues your certificates and makes more learnership options available in the market. It’s often difficult for learnership providers to find the correct unemployed candidates for organisations. If you are about to end a learnership, it’s useful to tell your training provider that you enjoyed the training. You can use the thank you letter to let them know you’re available for other learnerships.
