How Many Illegal SETA Learnerships Are There?

Illegal SETA Learnerships. Complaints and copies of unlawful or fake Learnership contracts are often sent to Keep Climbing. All submissions are dealt with in the strictest of confidence.

Learnership Contract Basics

Learnership contracts must be signed by three parties:

  1.  Learner
  2. SETA-accredited training  provider
  3. Employer

If there is no SETA-accredited provider you are not on a legal learnership, complete our complaints form immediately.

Learners don’t pay employers ANY money at ANY time.

If employers or providers make financial claims against you saying that if you leave you must pay back the money – stop being made fools of.

It is illegal to place an unemployed individual into a system that could make them poorer than they were before they signed up. Learners who were recruited as unemployed candidates are protected and cannot be forced to pay a cent.

These companies are operating illegally and use youth for tax cuts and BEE points. Even if learners leave – these corrupt employers still get benefits from the learners.

Compulsory Real Work Experience Must Be Logged

If you are not working for the employer and attending classes then your learnership is illegal.

Learnerships are designed to take place in a work environment and are not class-based or part-time programmes. Learnerships are FULL-TIME programmes.

Learner log books must be signed off by their supervisors and managers. Learners are being tricked into committing fraud for companies and training providers. They must NOT sign each other’s log books and misrepresent the employer and their practical work experience requirement.

Unfair Dismissals

Employers often treat learners with disrespect and scorn. The Constitution says our dignity is protected.

If you believe you were unfairly dismissed then complete the complaints form TODAY! NOW! Keep Climbing is committed to supporting learners and bringing the magic back into learnerships.

Learnerships are brilliant but the Department of Higher Education and Training, The Department of Labour and the SETAs cannot be trusted to act in the interests of the youth all the time.

Complaints received

In some cases, employers force learners to falsify documents and commit fraud. In others, employers illegally claim money from learners and unfairly dismiss them for minor offenses.

Even if you have no complaint about your learnership provider, send a copy of your contract so we can check it’s legal.

    Hi i done my learnership 2018 i didn’t get my certificate until now i don’t know what must i go to, i need help please.

  5. Hi Leonie

    Hope you’re well.

    I’m going to send you an email if thats ok – it’s in connection with Agriseta fraud & a bogus training facility where 10 students have been exploited since last year & once they started demanding answers they were all soon dismissed for bogus “charges”.

    They haven’t been paid out correctly but say that’s not their biggest issue. They’ve lost 1.5 years of their lives by completing bogus training & are now back to square one. All they want to do is qualify & start working.

    I have copies of all their documents &
    voice recordings, witness accounts etc as evidence. CCMA have ignored them for over 1 month already.

    I’ll send you the info now. Many thanks
    Kind regards
    Lynda Tilley

    Dear consultant

    We have been unfairly​ dismissed in our learnership last year in April 30 by our employer and we’re still in unresolved matter with ccma since much 2020 &we are going to the next hearing in 21june2021

    Our concern is that we signed 12months in the learnershp agreement from Foodbev SETA in September 2019 but we only served 8months becouse our employer fooled us

    As Learners of meat training center we’ll appreciate your department to help us by inviting anyone who will be able to say in behalf of Foodbev SETA as much as they always keeps their records

    He called Learners in August 2020 to complete all work that left behind in order to be rewarded a certificate, knowing that he used us to complete his duties to SETA to be seen as we are completing the learnership that he terminated in April without SETA’s decision nd parties in the agreement​

    This is how he makes money from SETA he use the Poor’s to be rich from the government money, this matter is not for the first time with the same employer to show that he used to,mybe he is above the law or he has a strong connection inside Foodbev SETA
