Home SETA Learnerships

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, for example, electrical engineering, hairdressing or project management. Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) manage learnerships. Government to help skill learners and to prepare them for the workplace introduced them. Learnership programmes can help you to gain the necessary skills and workplace experience that will open up better employment or self-employment opportunities.

New Link’s approach is hands on, to both the implementation and management of Learnership programmes. Our continuous learner support and high level of engagement guarantees higher levels of competency be it conducted through our online classroom or face to face.

Learnerships require you to complete a theoretical course as well as practical training, which is done at a workplace, in order to graduate. The workplace component of the qualification involves hands-on, practical learning under the guidance of a mentor, while an education and training provider provides the theoretical component. Together they form an integrated and comprehensive learning programme.

Top Tip: The number of credits needed to graduate varies from learnership to learnership, so make sur e that you understand the minimum requirements if you want to complete a learnership. Find out from the relevant SETA.
