"Education is the most powerful weapon one can use to change the world.”   -Nelson Mandela


The purpose of an Accredited Learnership is to develop the appropriate skills and knowledge required by a person for the field that they are working in at a particular standard determined by the South African Qualifications Authority. Learners enrolled in accredited qualifications will be equipped with a variety of technical, business managerial and personal skills to help them succeed in the business world. 

An accredited learnership is a work-based route to a qualification. It is a workplace education and training programme comprising of 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 national qualification.

Competence is the ability to perform whole work roles, to the standards expected in employment, in a real working environment.

The Concept of ‘Competence’

There are three levels of competence:

  • Foundational competence: an understanding of what you do and why.

  • Practical competence: the ability to perform a set of tasks in an authentic context.

  • Reflexive competence: the ability to adapt to changed circumstances appropriately and responsibly, and to explain the reason behind the action.
