What is a Learnership?

A Learnership is a work-based approach for people around to South Africa to gain practical work experience as part of a structured learning programme in the work place. The aim is for the Learners to gain a nationally recognised qualification directly related to the occupation that they are pursuing.

Criteria, as set out in the Skills Development Act, indicate that a learnership must:

Include a structured learning component
Include practical work experience
Lead to a qualification
Relate to an occupation

Why Learnerships were established

the increase in the unemployment rate in South Africa
the unequal distribution of income amongst various South Africans
unequal access to education and training, and employment opportunities for people from various backgrounds
the effects of race, gender and geographical location on advancement
the skills shortage amongst the labour force in South Africa

Why are Learnerships important?

There are a number of reasons why employers should get involved in learnerships. First, they are a way to get more skilled people. Skilled people make better workers as they:

* The programme is outcomes-based

* The learner interacts within the working environment (practical)

* Are more likely to do the correct thing the first time and make fewer mistakes.

* Are more likely to “get the best” out of their machines.

* Tend to be more independent workers.

* Are more motivated because they know why what they are doing is important to the overall business and might also be less likely to leave their jobs.
