Apply Now for Learnerships

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.

Money,

A learnership is a vocational education and training programme to facilitate the linkage between structured learning and work experience in order to obtain a registered qualification.
