Learnerships are occupationally directed training programs resulting in a recognised SAQA qualification.

Once learners have signed contracts, their learnerships are registered with SARS so the employer can claim rebates, reimbursements of stipends issued and BEE Points.

Learners are also termed ’employees’ and protected by labour legislation. Learners can register complaints with the CCMA or nearest Department of Labour branch and the Department of Higher Education and Training.

What does ‘occupationally directed’ mean?

It means the qualification strengthens and develops your ability to meet a particular job expectation in one or a range of industries.

The skills that you learn are specifically related to the workplace, empowering your career development and future job seeking opportunities.

A Learnership has two key features: 

  1. Class based formal training (towards a registered SAQA qualification)
  2. On the job learning and practice

Responding to adverts

Learnership adverts must state the qualification the learnership is based on. If it’s not there, you’re not applying to a professional organisation and should be careful.

The advert must also include how much the stipend is. Accredited organisations who operate professionally are upfront.

Send us copies of adverts that don’t do this so we can keep them on record and address it with the relevant SETA’s.

Dear #sabpp
Making claims that members of the public are not free citizens but are barcode marked, #SABPP's number begins with 666! #payslips

Criminally infested SABPP, the devilish labour market #exploitation and #inequality driver.

Their ignorance <?>
or is the truth more base: Their GREED
and unfettered lawlessness fears no consequences.

Like the devil in hell, as human resources gatekeeper, SABPP ditches humanity with apartheid styled fiction credentials served by #humanrights deviants.
In Machiavellian style they brainwash members into believing the general public is nothing more than a meat market where blacks are paid less and women marginalised.

SABPP publicly indicts themselves, they've said - we use #payslips to #pricefix, so what?!

SABPP's membership subjugate dignity and rape our rights.
Not one #SABPP member had the conviction, mental capacity or virtue to face #PaySlipBanSA, refute these arguments - or heck, get down and sue.

The SABPP brand should not exist, it doesn't belong anywhere, ok... Hell would work!

Evil SABPP, no need for dullard lawyers to send the usual missive. We don't remove posts, all statements are true and ready for court.
Your 666 ideology does not belong in a #democracy.
