We have never received a stipend since the begging of the learnership which started on the 2nd of March 2018. The reason we stayed was because they promised to hire us in less than 2 months period. But now we are being presented with the papers that should we quit, we would be required to pay. Is it really possible to have a learnership with no stipend at all?Thank you

    Hi Diopelo
    Unfortunately this kind of confusion happens often. There are times when there isn’t a stipend and there are times when there must be a stipend, I’d need to see the contract before answering your question. Please email me on leonieprojectnomad (at) gmail (dot) com

My concern is the same as that of Tshepo,we are renting yes we should have got our stipends of the 24th, imagine who can stand for more than 10days without us being tenants not paying I was sent packing around July with the same they always says water and sanitation didn’t pay for our stipends to be processed to our accounts

    Please let me know if this has been resolved and which qualification you are doing.

    Kholofelo Sep 19, 2018 at 4:30 am

    Our matters are still not resolved and the officials are still mum about our situation . Our qualification is ICT INTERN TECHNICIAN . The exploitation is very because we are accused of sending sensitive information when we report to get help.

    Kholofelo Sep 19, 2018 at 9:37 am

I hace started my In Service Training in the Department of Education in EC, Butterworth in October 2019, they told me they don’t give out stipends and most of the other trainees there get stipends ftom their former schools but mine says they don’t give out stipends too, so what do.I do now?

Because I need transport to go to work, and I can’t just quit I need my Diploma.

Hi, we signed a contract with Pendula group on November 2020 stating that our learnership would be starting that same month

We didn’t receive our stipends till this date. The lady who was recruiting us, Rika. Told us in December that we will start our learnership in January and with regards to our stipend?

She wrote as follows: Good Afternoon All, your November and December stipends will be paid as back-pay at the end of January 2021. Your January stipend will be paid as normal. We hope to see you all back in January 2021 to start your journey to SUCCESS!

And then now she says this: Hi julle, ek weet nie wanneer julle betaal gaan word nie

Tell us what's up!
