Learnerships have many advantages over other ways of getting a qualification. You can apply for learnerships at any time of the year as they don't always start at the beginning of the year.
Another advantage of a learnership is that you don't have to pay for the tuition. The company that employs you pays for the training and you will also be paid while you are learning. There is a stipend that all learners will be paid when they are on the learnership.
Learnerships are developed by the industry for the industry, in consultation with all relevant stakeholders, so the learning programme and qualification of the Learners are relevant to the specific occupation.
