How do you get a Seta learnership?
How can SETA learnerships be obtained? Potential learners can send their applications for learnerships to the SETA responsible for the relevant industry sector. The SETA will then usually forward the applications to employers, who will do the short-listing, interviewing and selection of candidates for the learnerships.

What is a Learnership?

A learnership is a structured learning program, just like a qualification you could do at a university or college. It includes a process for gaining theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a workplace. The qualification you receive is registered on the NQF and recognised nationally.

Learners participating in a learnership have to attend classes at a college or training centre to complete classroom-based learning. They also have to complete on-the-job training in a workplace. The workplace experience must be relevant to the qualification.  These learners have the same rights as a permanent or full-time employees but without the benefits.
