A Learnership is a vocational education and training programme that links structured learning and work experience in order to obtain a registered qualification. It combines theory and workplace practice into a qualification that is registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). Learnerships assist in building an effective workforce, develop skills and provide opportunities to groom unemployed people for potential recruitment within your organisation. Learnerships are practical with on-the-job training and mentoring. Under the guidance of an experienced and qualified mentor, candidates learn the demands of an occupation in real-time. Learnerships are outcomes-based so a learner’s success will be dependent on whether he/she can practically apply the knowledge and skills learned. Assessments are conducted throughout the process and all candidates are assessed against occupational standards that have been agreed upon by industry stakeholders. We are committed to developing people with the competencies required to enhance their careers and become instrumental participants in sustaining the company’s competitive advantage. We have a young, dedicated, and dynamic team that thrives on learning technology. We engage and empower modern learners, with solutions delivered in the moment of need, on any device, using the most appropriate learning approach!
We are offering an eLearning specialisation Learnership to build a pipeline of eLearning Designers for your organisation.

The ETI is an incentive aimed at encouraging employers to hire young work seekers. It was implemented with effect from 1 January 2014. Millions of young South Africans are excluded from participating in economic activity, and as a result suffer disproportionately from unemployment, discouragement and economic marginalisation. High youth unemployment means young people are not gaining the skills or experience needed to drive the economy forward. This lack of skills can have long-term adverse effects on the economy.
In South Africa, the current lack of skills and experience as well as perceptions regarding the restrictiveness of labour regulations make some prospective employers reluctant to hire the youth. As a South African employer, you now have a great opportunity to boost the employment of young work seekers.
Companies are encouraged to double their existing BBBEE training budgets from 3% to 6% of payroll, of which 2.5% should be towards bursaries. Skills Development is now a priority element with a 25-point weighting. Including 5 bonus points. To avoid dropping a level in BEE status a company must achieve a minimum of 40% or 8 points of the target set out in the skills development scorecard excluding bonus points. 5% of Black individuals including unemployed individuals on Learnerships.
