SETA contacts for Learnerships (funded occupational training)

Learnership make contact with SETA

Please Follow Us by Subscribing to this Blog and click the link at the bottom of the page to our Facebook page. :-)

If you are unemployed, capable of learning and hungry for experience – you MUST find and apply for Learnerships. You will receive free training that will result in an industry recognized qualification. While you are on the Learnership, you will be employed at a company and be required to meet on-the-job expectations.

An 18.2 Learnership program is one which specifically targets the unemployed.

Research Tips for Unemployed Applicants 

  1. You must decide which industry you want to work in or which  job position you wish to have. You may have the answer to both, which is great!
  2. Look for the SETAs that represent the industries you want to work in.

Or maybe you want a job that occurs in ALL industries, for example Administration, Business Management, Project Management, Marketing etc.

Matching the Job to a Qualification

  1. If you want a job that exists in all industries, then you are looking for a qualification that has transferable skills. Sometimes these skills are also referred to as generic. Many of these qualifications are managed by the Services SETA. Visit their website and review their qualifications, see if anything there appeals to you. Nothing? then:
  2. Visit each SETA website and go through their qualifications until you have a list of 3 – 5 that you would like to do. You must know which qualifications you are interested in if you want someone to help you.

People often contact a SETA without really knowing what to ask.

Try following these tips if you are unemployed and looking for a Learnership.

Contact the relevant SETA and ask the following:

  1. Please put me through to your Learnership department. Once there, ask:
  2. Hi, who am I speaking to please? Write their name down. Then say, ‘Thank you‘ and ask:
  3. What 18.2 learnerships are available and who is the service provider? If they can’t tell you, ask:
  4. How can I register for 18.2 Learnerships in your sector? If they say they don’t know, say:
  5. Would you like my contact details in case you do come across a solution? Regardless of their response, tell them:
  6. Thank you, I will inform Minister Blade Nzimande at the DHET that for now, you have been unable to assist me in a meaningful way.

      • Dear Lebogang, I’m so sorry to hear about your experience. Since you have signed the contracts you are considered an employee and are required to be paid weekly or monthly as per legislation requirements. Please go straight to the CCMA and / or the Department of Labour and report your complaint. You can also call the Services SETA whistle blower number (means you’re exposing a problem they MUST know about) to explain your problem: 0861101148
        Best wishes, Leo

    Dear Sasseta I’m an HR intern placed in a SMME company, I’m an enthusiastic person who has passion in Human Resource, I believe I was wrongly placed since I’m not getting relevant exposure as Hr intern should.
    I will be glad if I could get a word of advice from you.

    • You have three choices
      1. Rob the people who have stipends and then get expelled and lose out on a qualification
      2. Complain to the people who pay the stipends
      3. Lodge a complaint with the SETA and the Department of Labour.
      Your choice – let me know! (I would choose 2 first)
