Red & Yellow Learnerships

What is a Learnership?

Simply put, a Learnership is a 12-month work-based learning programme that results in an NQF-registered qualification. Learners (“eligible students”) attend lectures and work through online learning theory while being in the workplace where they are able to practically apply their newly learnt skills and build up work experience.

Learnerships offer companies a wealth of B-BBEE points, access to SETA grants and lucrative tax deductions. Companies who run Employed Learnerships are also able to recognise both the full cost of the programme and the full salary of each learner for the duration of their participation in the programme.

Learnerships – when done right – combine three things we’re really passionate about;  High quality and effective training, massive transformation benefits and a wealth of perks for organisations that run them. Because of this, we’ve had a bunch of people asking us how these programmes actually work and how they’re different from regular skills programmes. That’s why we’ve recently published the first-ever Learnership ‘How-to’ guide. If you have any Learnership related questions or curiosities, we highly recommend giving it a read – we’re sure you’ll find what you’re looking for there.
