What is a Learnership?
A learnership is a work-based learning programme. It requires you to complete theory sections through a training college and practical sections through a company. Learnerships equip students with relevant skills and give them equal access to education. You can also do learnerships in a wide variety of fields such as marketing or electrical engineering.
Who Qualifies for a Learnership?
In South Africa, you qualify if you are older than 16 and younger than 35 years of age. You can pursue one whether you’re employed or not. But bear in mind, each learnership has its own requirements, so make sure to do your research.
Skills Academy is the word support in every way.
Advantages of Completing a Learnership

Learn While you Earn
For the duration of your learnership, you’ll receive a stipend. The amount of money you get depends on the company you work for. However, it usually covers expenses such as travelling fare and meals.

Every industry has a wide range of jobs. A learnership provides a safe space for students to experience what it’s like to work in them. This way you’ll be able to decide which job would suit you best when it comes to applying for a permanent post.
