What is a learnership?
A learnership is a structured training programme which provides the learner with both workplace and academic learning. This means that the learners are provided with opportunities to apply their learning in a real work situation throughout the learning programme. The learnership programme generally stretches over a year and leads to a nationally registered qualification.
