3 Great Industries to Get Learnerships In
Recently, President Jacob Zuma has signed seven new finance bills into law including The Unemployment Insurance Amendment Act.
Under this legislation, unemployment insurance benefits will be extended to learners who are undergoing learnership training, as well as civil servants. The said law also covers the process of application for maternity benefits.
There’s no doubt about it. Now would be a great time to apply for a learnership. And if you’re wondering which one you should choose, consider these three latest learnerships.
Department of Labour Learnerships
Your first stop when applying for a learnership is the Department of Labour (DOL) since you need to register first before you can begin your learnership journey.
To apply, have your South African citizen or ID card ready. Attach a copy to your curriculum vitae (CV) and submit with a filled-out Application for Employment form (Z83 form).
You can download a copy of the Z83 form here or you can request one from the Public Service department.
The last step is to send your application via post or personally deliver it to the office that advertised the position. You can view the list of DOL vacancies here.
BMW, one of the most popular luxury automakers in the world, has a three-year learnership programme conducted by the BMW Technical Training Department.
It is geared towards technologically-inclined learners who are eager to study Autotronics and Mechatronics. The yearly programme starts every 1st of March and will offer participants the chance to develop skills and gain BMW-specific experience, as well as formal Artisan qualification.
BMW accepts applications as early as October and will only consider applicants who have a Standard 10/Grade 12 Certificate or a Further Education and training Certificate NQF level 4, which can only be completed with a 50% or higher rate in Science and Mathematics.
Other requirements/qualifications include: a driver’s license, computer skills (Office Suite), and completed BMW SA Apprentice 1st level training course. Tertiary technical qualification and/or technical motor industry experience are a plus, but not required.
You can directly apply by emailing your application to email@example.com.
Nursing learnerships take 12 to 24 months to complete, after which you can also take additional classes to earn your diploma in nursing.
If you are interested in government nursing learnerships, the Department of Health has open positions in different provinces including Kwazulu Natal, Gauteng, Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, Free State, North West, Mpumalanga, and Limpopo.
To apply, you must be 18 to 35 years old, know English, as well as life sciences, biology, and related subjects, and have completed Matric. Include your ID, detailed CV, as well as copies of any relevant certificates you have.
You can also visit your local health department to know if they are currently offering nursing learnerships.
