QUALIFICATIONS & LEARNERSHIPS

A learnership leads to a qualification. However, to obtain a qualification,
it is not necessary to enter into a learnership which involves work-place experience components. Sakhisisizwe offers both as well as single unit standards and skills programme accredited training. We tailor make your training according to the company or the individuals needs.

WHAT IS A LEARNERSHIP?

Learnerships combine both knowledge and work experience components of learning.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LEARNERSHIPS?

Learners benefit :
No loss of income that formal full time studying would cost
Better career prospects as learnerships are related to jobs and occupations
A launch pad for future learning opportunities
Obtaining a formal qualification while gaining relevant workplace experience

Employers benefit:
Not having employees being away from the office for long periods of time.
Learnerships have work-relevant features which means that employees are equipped to “hit the ground running” when they arrive in the workplace.
As training programmes combine theory and relevant practical elements, learnerships create skilled people who:
tend to work more independently, need less supervision and possess enhanced problem solving capabilities;
are motivated and strive to add value to the business;
are less likely to leave a company that takes an interest and invests in their personal and professional development.
