Learnerships
What is a Learnership?
A Learnership is a work-based route to a qualification. It is a work-place
education and training programme comprising both structured practical
work-place (on-the-job) experience and structured theoretical training.
The duration of a Learnership is approximately twelve months, and
results in a full qualification.
Learnerships are important because success is measured in terms
of actual skills that the learner acquires. A Learner is taught why and
how things are done and must understand the theory that supports the
practice.
Learnerships help people to improve basic literacy and numeracy. The
learners are assessed at various stages to see if they are progressing
and are able to perform the tasks for which they are being trained.
The NQF qualification is nationally recognised.
Why Learnerships?
♦ To fast track the development of current employees;
♦ To offer employees an opportunity to obtain a nationally recognised
qualification;
♦ To recognise experience and knowledge acquired by employees
through formal learning;
♦ To offer learners much needed work experience; and
♦ To expose the unemployed learners to better job prospects.
Benefits of participating
♦ A nationally recognised qualification;
♦ Practical workplace experience for learners;
♦ Recognition of past experience and knowledge obtained by the
learner formally or informally through the process of Recognition
Prior Learning (RPL);
♦ Exposure to actual job environment;
♦ Serves as an entry point for young people into industry/employment;
and
♦ Provides a route to employment/ self-employment.

Who participates in a Learnership?
A Learnership involves three main parties:
♦ The learner;
♦ The training provider; and
♦ The employer.
If unemployed, the learner enters into a Temporary Employment
Contract with the employer for an agreed period for the duration of the
Learnership. If employed, the existing employment contract, and normal
company policies apply. The employer pays for the training of the learner.
An accredited training provider is appointed for the structured theoretical
learning.
A Learnership Agreement is entered into between the Learner, Employer
and Training Provider for the duration of the Learnership (referred to
as a Tri-partite agreement). The agreement outlines the rights and
responsibilities of each party. The agreement is lodged with the MICT
Seta, which assures the quality of the Learnership programme. Should
there be any disputes as to whether one of the parties is not fulfilling
their responsibilities; an appeal can be made to the MICT Seta. If the
learner is still a minor, the parent or legal guardian signs the agreement
on behalf of the learner.
The MICT Seta formally registers all Learnership agreements so that a
register of learner credits can be maintained. A Mentor/Coach monitors
the learner’s progress at the workplace whilst a registered Assessor
evaluates the progress.
Unemployed learners receive a monthly allowance as laid down by
the Basic Conditions of Employment of the Department of Higher
Education and Training. Also refer to the Sectoral Determination No. 5,
Skills Development Act and associated regulations, on the Department
of Higher Education and Training website, www.labour.gov.za / www.
dhet.org.za. Employed Learners remain on the Terms and Conditions of
their Employment Contract.
There are two distinct components to a Learnership - theoretical and
experiential. Learnerships can be performed at several different levels

on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), with Level 1 being
Adult Basic Education and Level 8 equivalent to a masters or doctorate
degree.
Learners on Learnerships receive credits for every unit standard
completed successfully. Learnerships are appropriate for people across
the board.

Information on Learnerships and Internships
Learnerships are appropriate for people across the board.
Other Learnerships are also available from other Setas, and MICT Seta
has a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in place with most other
Setas to facilitate skills development utilising these other Learnerships.
The full list of registered Learnerships across all Setas is available
from www..dhet.org.za / www.labour.gov.za/useful_docs, then look for
“Registered Learnerships by SETAs”.
Note that any suitably qualified person within any Seta can do a
Learnership through any other Seta. In order to do a Learnership that
is administered by a Seta in some other sector, the applicant must first
work through the Seta to which their organisation belongs. Hence, while
the Learnerships stated in the table above are administered by MICT
Seta, these Learnerships being very Media and ICT oriented, a learner
can still enter into a Learnership, for example, a contact centre, project
management or retail and marketing qualification, through a Learnership
that has been developed and registered by another Seta.
Who can apply for a Learnership?
Only employers can apply for Learnerships to be implemented.
Individuals cannot apply. Individuals can only become involved through
an employer.
The employer must be a registered MICT Seta stakeholder member, and
be capable of providing the structured workplace experiential learning.
The employer must also be able to mentor and perform skills transfer,
and the training provider must also be accredited by a Seta or any other
accrediting body. If already accredited, the training provider must submit
confirmation of accreditation.
The training provider must also be prepared to go through the programme
approval process.
If the objectives of the intended Learnership support the MICT Seta’s
objectives, the MICT:
♦ If unemployed, register with the Department of Higher Education and
Training /Learner Support Services; and
♦ Submit enquiries to relevant Seta.

Internships
What is an Internship?
An Internship is a programme designed to give University and Universities
of Technology graduates an opportunity to extend their academic
qualifications through structured workplace exposure and specialised
training. Participants are placed on a full-time basis for a period of eight to
twelve months in stakeholder companies and government organisations,
the purpose of which is to provide the learner with workplace experience
that builds on the qualification.
The MICT Seta utilises the concept of Internships to fast track high level
skills, to offer needed work experience to unemployed graduates and to
empower graduates with practical knowledge commensurate with their
qualification.
In summary, an Internship focuses on practical training; the employer
determines the duration and content of the Internship, so it can vary
greatly; and the specific outcomes are not defined or regulated as in the
case of Learnerships. Internships are ideal for graduates or those with
tertiary qualifications but who lack experience.
The primary benefit for the graduate learner includes obtaining “real
world” workplace experience.
Why Internships?
♦ To fast track high level skills;
♦ To offer unemployed graduates with needed work experience; and
♦ To empower graduates with practical knowledge levelling with
qualifications.

Graduates receive workplace experience.
Who participates in an Internship?
Either employed or unemployed persons can get involved in an
Internship, but the MICT Seta focuses on unemployed graduates. The
Internship usually involves just the learner, who is a potential employee
to a company, and the potential employer. Taking note of the learner’s
level of education, capabilities and experience, the employer defines the
workplace programme that must be completed for the learner to obtain
the required skills for the work to be performed within the company. This
workplace programme is reviewed with the learner, and both parties agree
to the final programme.
There may be instances where the learner has to undergo some
additional specialised training. In this case, the training provider could
become a third party to the Internship agreement.
On completion of the Internship, the intern will receive a Certificate of
Recognition.
