Merseta Learnership is a program that offers learners an opportunity to gain practical skills and experience in the engineering and manufacturing sectors. The program aims to provide learners with hands-on training as well as theoretical knowledge, to help them succeed in their chosen careers.
How Does the Program Work?
Learners in learnerships must attend courses at a college or training centre to complete classroom-based learning, as well as on-the-job training in the workplace. Therefore, unemployed individuals can only participate in a learnership if an employer is willing to provide the necessary work experience.
Is the Learnership Paid?
Employers will pay a learner honorarium to all unemployed individuals who qualify for a learnership program. The allowance is not a salary, but it will cover expenses such as travel and refreshments that you will incur as a result of the learnership.
Who is Eligible for the Merseta Learnership?
To qualify for the Merseta Learnership program, applicants must meet certain requirements.
- Must be South African citizens
- Between the ages of 18 and 35 years old.
- Applicants must have a Grade 12 certificate and have completed a relevant NQF Level 4 qualification.

Learnerships are registered with the Labor Department. For more information about available learnerships, you could contact your local labour centre or the provincial office of the Department of Labor. A catalogue of all registered learnerships is also available at www.labour.gov.za, the website of the Department of Labour. Click on “useful documents” and then “Registered learnerships by SETAs.” Some learnerships have no entrance requirements, while others require learners to possess a high school diploma. Certain learnerships have entry requirements that are explicitly related to the study field. For instance, you will be unable to enroll in a learnership in the field of financial management if you lack a foundational understanding of finances.
The Merseta Learnership program is an excellent opportunity for individuals who are passionate about the engineering and manufacturing sectors. By participating in the program, learners will gain valuable skills and experience that will help them to excel in their chosen careers.
