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.

  5. Mokone

    Hi there I’m DJ, I was studying electrical engineering at protech training last year doing my NQF level2 under construction ceta. I mean things were not going well, but towards the end of the year they offered us something like a contract from services seta, they told us we gonna start this year january, even now we still waiting for them and they don’t tell us the exact date when are we going to start. If you can, can you please clarify me about seta’s start date and monthly stipend, because sometimes we get it very hard to trust that training centre the way the treating us

  6. Hi,am really cross with the way learnerships are managed.i have been studying plumbing with in touch community development &capricorn fet college from 2014 till december,they promised us certificate and stipends,i think that learnerships enriches the rich while the poor become poorer.people pocket the money intended to help us to enrich themselves and their families.28million rand from seta dissapeared,our december-january stipends has not been payed,no certificates,we have turned into the laughing stock in our community,another year down the drain.seta can u please investigate.frustrated-limpopo

  7. I passed my N6 in Human Resource Management last year, i got a call on Thursday, last week from my Student Support Services from my College, request me to come at Mthatha General Hospital to do In-service Training for 18 months in order for me to get my Diploma and said i’ll get a Stipend of R3 800 per month.

    Today i met Mr. S Simane from my College, who is resposibly to take of the money from SETA to provide students that are currently doing In-service Trainin, he said SETA didn’t reply to his application and said i’ll not get any cent and i must forget about the Stipend.

    I talked him that i don’t have money to proceed with this In-serve becourse of Rent(1000) and Transport(R400) per month and no one is working at home i helped by child support, he said he have no other option.

    Now my parents took a decision for me live the In-serve and come back home becourse they don’t have money to provide me, please help i don’t know what can i do now, i really need the In-service Training.

    • Hi Apiwe, I’m sorry to hear about your challenges which you have so clearly explained. I’ve visited the HW SETA website ( ) and I see they are telling learners to be careful when enrolling with private service providers. You need to explain your situation to them. Follow that link and make a few calls. Please write down the name of the person you speak with and what they say. Send us the information and we will follow up from our side for you if they are unwilling to assist.
      Best of luck!

    • Thobeka

      Im the one who did nt getting the money. I phone to central office of my college,they say i must fax the letter to confirm that im doing inservice training even now they didnt say anything because everyday im transporting

      • Hi Thobeka
        I understand your frustration. Do you know which SETA is funding the program? Find out and contact them directly or go to the Department of Labour. You are considered an employee whilst on a Learnership and can use the legislation to protect yourself or settle disputes.

  8. my name is miranda zungu i want learnership of sme

    • Hi Sizwe. You must find your own learnership as no one else can do it for you. Read the Learnership articles on this site to understand how to do it. Do not be lazy, do not wait for god, it’s your life so success is your responsibility. Make it happen! You can do it!!!!

  17. I want to know my application status of SASSETA 2015.

  18. hatibo

  19. Babalwa

    I would like to know what provision do you have for people that have experience but do not have formal qualifications. And are out of jobs. For instance I am 38 years and have 12 years experience in retail from cashier , accounts clerk , sales person and financial services manager but I am looking for a job now I do not seem to fit in management positions. Any help or advice please

    • Hi Babalwa
      Truth is there are people looking for someone just like you. It’s a numbers game, you need to make yourself accessible to as many organisations as possible. Set up an awesome profile on Linkedin. Send connection requests to everyone you find in HR and recruitment. If you want a job within the next two months, you must apply for a job pretty much EVERYDAY. MAKE YOURSELF VISIBLE. Best wishes!

  20. Leah

    I would like to receive notifications about travel and tourism internships

  21. We dont get paid in kwadukuza umfolozi college chief Albert luthuli campus money that is funded by Contraction SETA the took it from February contact me on 0710308480/0734950756

    • Hi Sphesihle, learnership people are considered employed for the duration of their contract. You can therefor go to the CCMA and Department of Labour to lodge a dispute and request mediation.

  22. itumeleng

    I would like to be informed everytime there are learnerships.

  23. i just finished my level 3 of manufacturing and design in jewellery at slji.i like to know about age difference if the learnership they have to drop the over 35 years learners?

    • Noooo Dineo! I’ve actually had a lovely young man at the age of 60 on a learnership! Older learners bring dignity and perseverance to the program, they usually put the ‘lighties’ in their place! :-) There’s no age discrimination but the funding may not be the same as government really wants to get the youth trained and employed.

    Good evening

    On 10th February 2015 I joined LGSETA programme. I was thrilled, because I’ll start working and getting experience… The HR officer Mr Koyana from Port St John’s Municipality placed me in a local school to be a teacher,nbut I have a national diploma in business management. Not EDUCATION. He told the school principal to make use of me,they will pay. We signed incomplete contracts. We were never told how much we gonna receive per month. On May they called a meeting. Told us that the money is not there yet. And Graduates will earn R3500 pm. People with certificate R1800 and people who are doing plumbing. They told us that we’ll be back payed from March,because the programme supposedto start on March. 01 June they deposited R5400. To my surprise I phoned the HR officer. He asked me in a rude manner”ain’t you an FET graduate”?. I said yes. And he said “so ke sisi the FET diploma is not the same as University Diploma. That’s why you’re getting R1800.” I want to know SETA People are you making us LESS educated? He said its Seta’s decision to discriminate agaainst us like this… and he said we are not employed. We are getting exposure… We are to work for another 3-4 months with no pay…. stressed. I spend R1000 for transport monthly. I teach Economic and management science grades 7,8 & 9. English 7 & 8 and Life orientation grade 7. It is too much.

    • Hi Yoza
      We feel your pain. This website is not written by a SETA, we are just individuals who want to help people with rock solid advice. You are not supposed to feel discriminated against – but you don’t explain exactly which qualification and which NQF Level you studied on. Remember it takes a university graduate 3 years to get a degree, if you only studied 1 year on a learnership at NQFL4 you may have earned credits towards a degree but not a full degree. We don’t want you ruining what ever opportunity you might have. We need more details from you, please send your email so that we can follow up. Leonie

    • Please remember that as you are an employee, if you are unhappy with your employment – the CCMA and Department of Labour are there to assist you by law.

  30. I have applied for seta learnership and the contac i applied with is an mtn number which is currently not in use as the mtn service is not working because they are still on strike and i’d like to be notified about any relevant information on my new numbers which are 076 2289 ###.
    I’ll be pleased to see the progress of this application.

    • Hi Nemalinda, this site does not belong to a SETA. Subscribe to this blog to recieve articles. Keep looking for learnerships and keep applying. There is no easy way, you must keep working at it.

  38. Nomanene

    Am doing my in-service traing and i’ve been told by my service provider from my collage that am going to be funded by agriSeta R3750 the application has been successful i sent all the required document later on he said my boss must send Tax clearance certificate, bank details of the farm& contract between the two parties my boss did everything and he promised as on the 5 june the money will be deposited bt till to date the money is not deposited when am calling him he dont answer my calls. I started on the 2 April 2015 and he told me the good news on the 15 May. My in-serve is based on Farming Management i completed my N6. i sent him an sms asking if my boss is allowed to do followup from agriseta he said no am also not allowed. please help me because am working veryhard here for nothing but i dont complain about the work because is the carreer that i’ve choose require more work i just hate the fact that he said am going to be funded the application is successful and i had hope.

    • Dear Nomanene, if you are on a learnership you are considered an employee protected by the Department of Labour and our labour laws. Register a complaint with them. Your employer may be part of the problem or they may also be unsure about what to do. SETAS work for both of you and get into trouble when this type of confusion happens. If you and your employer work together you will get better results. The SETA often takes long to pay, your boss must find out from them if something is wrong as they often don’t communicate. What you’re doing is important. Please don’t give up.

  39. klaas nolly

    im doing inservice training at hospital ..i dont get any stipend i would like you to help me..when im asking at skul they said Seta

    Good day

    Trust this detail finds you well.

    I am facing a bit of a challenge registering as a SDF on the SETA website.
    I am particularly interested in Culture Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sports SETA.
    I am not employed,and there is a section where you need to fill in your employers details. Am I able to register as a SDF when I’m unemployed. I am certified,on NQF 5 level. Institution attended: MNA

    Please advise.

    Letitia Martin
    079 727 6677

    • Hey Letitia! You have two options #1 Register your own business or simply drop your own details in the employer section #2 get a job and request to perform the SDF function at your new job. But you see the problem? The SETA wants active SDF operatives, not armchair ones. So that’s why they need to know who you work for.

      • letitia

        Hi Leo,thanks for the feed back.
        I will do the ‘my details’ in the employment bracket and see if it will go through. Also I sent out an email yesterday with regard to 18.2 learnerships. What is the turn around time on feed back?

      • Turnaround is relative to each SETA and if they are under administration or not. What ever you want – give chase but do it with a smile, they are used to fobbing off upset people so it’s no good to be aggrieved. If you really need to push for something urgently, set up a meeting, take CUPCAKES and ooze charm and determination.

  41. Lebogang

    I would like to inquire about the learnership of hair dressing course here in Potchefstroom Academy Tina Scholz North West, it falls under which department?

  42. Maidi kelebogile

    I would also like to apply for learnerships that are available in north west

  43. I have N1 Plumbing I would like you to train me I have no experience I live in CapeTown

  44. Constance malube manamela

    I was studing for security at lemoshanang in attridgeville but they didnt gv me my certificate at sasseta nd my follower students got them except me

    • Hi Constance, sorry to hear that! You don’t say if your POE was assessed and if you knew your results. If you submitted your POE, ask the learnership manager where your certificate is. If you believe you are being unfairly discriminated against (treated badly) – take it straight to the CCMA and the Department of labour. If you have earned your certificate then do whatever you need to do to get it. If you have completed the learnership and do not have a job – complain to the SETA and contact the Councillor in your area.

  45. hai my name is zikhona,I would love to know how to get a learnership?I’m 31 years old.I want to go further in future.
