What Are SETA Learnerships and Apprenticeships?
Example of a Learnership:
An example of a program is an HWSETA nursing learnership. During this program, participants receive both theoretical and practical training in nursing, such as patient care, medication management, and infection control. The program usually lasts for 24 months, and participants must complete a set number of hours of practical work experience to qualify for certification. At the end of the program, participants receive a recognized nursing qualification and may have increased employability in the healthcare industry.
Example of an Apprenticeship:
An example of an apprenticeship program is an electrical apprenticeship. During this program, participants receive both theoretical and practical training in electrical installations, maintenance, and repair. The program usually lasts for four years, and participants must complete a set number of hours of practical work experience to qualify for certification. At the end of the program, participants receive a recognized trade qualification and may be employed as qualified electricians.
Register for SETA Learnerships or Apprenticeships
Contact the Relevant SETA
- Identify two or three qualifications you want to pursue
- Contact the relevant SETA (Sectoral Education and Training Authority).
- Ask to be put through to the Learnerships department (expect to be on hold for a long time. Don’t use your cell phone unless you have lots of airtime.)
- Ask them who’s recruiting for these learnerships. Also, remember that SETA websites can be very useful (when they update them!).
If you want to be placed on a programme, try the following three steps: (easiest option)
- Register as a learner with the Department of Labour
- Contact the HR department at a company you would like to work for. Ask if they have a learnership / apprenticeship program that you could apply for. Get the details and make it happen!
- Contact training companies directly for learnership opportunities. Check that they are accredited for the qualifications you are interested in.
Believe it or not, companies have opportunities but ofen lack the means to reach those people who could benefit. These companies receive BEE points and tax rebates when they create opportunities for your career development. So approach them directly! You have nothing to lose.
When you apply, please write using correct grammar and spelling! 😉
