What are the Main Benefits of a Learnership?

(The Government of South Africa)

There are a number of reasons why employers should get involved in learnerships. First, they are a way to get more skilled people. Skilled people make better workers as they:

  • Are more likely to do the correct thing the first time and make fewer mistakes.
  • Are more likely to "get the best" out of their machines.
  • Tend to be more independent workers.
  • Are more motivated because they know why what they are doing is important to the overall business and might also be less likely to leave their jobs.
