Learnerships and Skills Programmes
Learnerships are of a specified nature, level and duration (usually one year) resulting in a nationally recognised qualification. Learnerships are provided by
employers (both large and small) in conjunction with the learner, the relevant
SETA (sector education and training authority), and or an accredited training provider.
Generally, learnerships are work based and enable successful, competent
learners the opportunity to progress in a job. Each learner is required to enter into
a standard contract, obtainable through a SETA, which regulates the learnership
process. Through our strategic structure, specialising in Learnerships or short courses, we can run any number of abled or disabled learners in any industry both employed
or unemployed by an organisation. Being an accredited provider we assure that our clients are eligible for TAX rebate referred to in The Income Tax Act of R80’000 per abled learner and R120’000 per disabled learner.
