The Value of Learnerships for Business

The unemployment rate is high in South Africa and one very innovative way to solve or reduce this challenge in the labour market, is for business to provide opportunities for learnerships.

The benefit of creating a Learnership not only helps the economy to grow but provides learners with the skills industry needs through training the theoretical knowledge aspects and providing students with the practical work experience. Employers are also eligible for government tax incentives, the SETA’s offer grants for these learnerships and learnerships assist with the BBBEE scorecard points according to Business Essentials online.

Learnerships however can only be successful when the employer and the training provider all share the same vision.

The employer provides the opportunity for the practical part of the learnership and provides the funding for the learners to be trained. It is important for each learner to be mentored and receive the right guidance when they arrive at the employer. This will make a difference to the experience of the learner and the process of learning on the job will have a significant impact

A.T.A as a training provider is involved in learnerships in the Automotive Industry and offers value to business by planning and managing the process from start to finish for the employer or business partner.
