What is a Learnership?
A learnership is a work based learning programme that leads to an NQF registered qualification. Learnerships are directly related to an occupation or field of work. Learnerships are managed by Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs). A learnership requires that a learner enter into a fixed term employment contract with the company whilst studying towards a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), which is in line with the learnership. Once the qualification is completed, the learnership will also end.
