The Business Administration Learnership Cover Letter Guide

It’s important to remember that a learnership is a qualification you gain by attending training and completing work-based tasks and assignments. Learners have training and employment contracts in place. Sometimes each contract is with a different organisation, other times they are the same organisation. The employer and training provider can be at the same organisation or they can be completely separate organisations.
