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.
