Why learnerships were established

The Skills Development Act, as amended, and the Skills Development Levies Act are designed to implement structures and processes that will transform skills development in South Africa. Historically, education and training provision did not always link the theory to the practice required in an occupation.

Learnerships are intended to address the gap between education and training provision and the needs of the labour market.

Learnerships seek to address the following labour market issues:

      the decline in levels of employment in South Africa;

 

      the unequal distribution of income;

 

 

      the effects of race, gender and geographical location on advancement and;

 

    skills shortages.
