How much will it cost for the Learner?

  • There is no fee charged for a person to be on a Learnership.
  • The employer must pay unemployed learners selected for a Learnership a learner allowance.
  • Employed learners because they already have a salary would not get the learners allowance.
  • In supporting employers who are implementing Learnerships, SETAs have Learnerships grants that they pay to employers towards tuition and learner allowance.
  • The purpose of the Learnership grant is not to pay the total cost of implementing the Learnership, but to offset some of the cost incurred by the employer.
  • The precise amount would depend on the type of the Learnership and the Minister of Labour has agreed to the minimum level of allowance and conditions but the employer can pay more.
