Are Learnerships paid for?

Yes most organisations in South Africa have financial packages for learners as a means of motivating them to give off their best while also serving as a way of sustaining them during their learnership programme in the organisation. However a learner should not expect to be on the same wage level as permanent staff as that is highly unlikely even though some organisations are charitable enough to do this. In summary, a learner should go to any organisation with the main motive of getting paid or making money as that defeats the purpose of learnership programmes.

How do you apply for learnership programmes


Every organisation on South Africa has its own laid down application process for applicants to follow and apply to the organisation and in which case failure to strictly follow the steps leads to an unsuccessful application. Most of the time the application process or steps can be found on the organisation’s website. However there are some very general guidelines you must follow if you are to be successful

These include the following

  • You must be a South African citizen
  • Must have completed your education in any South African higher education institution
  • Must provide supporting documents requested by organisation
  • Must be a fresh graduate usually between the ages of 18 and 35
