Learnerships are managed by Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs). They were introduced by government to help skill learners and to prepare them for the workplace.

Learnership programmes can help you to gain the necessary skills and workplace experience that will open up better employment or self employment opportunities.

Learnerships are based on legally binding agreement between an employer, a learner and a Training Provider. This agreement is intended to spell out the tasks and duties of the employer, the learner and the Training Provider. It is designed to ensure the quality of the training and to protect the interests of each party.

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 (the cost of the qualification falls to the Company). Once the qualification is completed, the learnership will also end.

What is a learnership Stipend? A learnership stipend is a structured training module that includes theory and practice within the workspace. The program lasts 6 months to a year and once completed the learner receives a qualification that is NQF registered. During the learnership, a monthly stipend is given. Funding for a learnership is around R45 500, and R2000 is given to learner as a stipend during the program.

South Africas legislation sets a minimum level. Employers choose the final amount or maximum. Its up to the employer to decide how much they can afford. Just as salaries range from employer to employer and from sector to sector, including stipends.

Some learners earn the bare minimum because they accepted it and couldn’t negotiate on their real expenses. These learners either have to leave the program or just be grateful for what they signed up for and act professionally.

Visually impaired learners need specific accommodations in place. There needs to be full access and amenities for those who are wheelchair bound or blind.

Visually impaired learners receive additional stipends for assistance such as transport as they may not have access to public transport – especially if they live in rural areas. Most rely on private taxis or pay someone they know a monthly fee for lifts.

Stipends aren’t performance-based bonuses. Many companies can’t afford to pay their learners on an hourly basis usually offer stipends to assist learners with expenses that need covering during learniship program. This includes costs such as:
