Johannesburg, 10 October 2017 - Medical students receive excellent clinical training but they often graduate not knowing how to run a practice as a business.
A Learnership is a structured learning process for gaining knowledge and practical skills in the workplace leading to a qualification registered on the National Qualification Framework.
It is a workplace education and training programme comprising both structured practical workplace (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.
Benefits of participating in a Learnership:
- 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 of 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.
