A learnership is a work–based learning programme. This means that classroom studies at a college or training centre are combined with practical on–the–job experience. We learn much better when we can practice what we have been taught in the classroom in a workplace environment.
This is the first of three levels of a Learnership. The knowledge and experience gained in this qualification is typically what is completed in a 1st year apprenticeship. During the year the learners will receive knowledge and experience on basic welding practice and theoretical knowledge in weld preparation, cutting and brazing. In addition to this they will also learn to
The learners will attend their knowledge and practical training at our centres which are situated in Cape Town, Kya Sands (Johannesburg) and Ggeberha (Port Elizabeth). The course covers 16 weeks at the institution which is made up of Fundamental unit standards covering numeracy and literacy, as well as core and elective unit standards that are selected to meet the minimum credits required to achieve the qualification. Learners will complete formative assessments which will be recorded in their POE’s
Learners are then required to complete exposure at the worksite gaining valuable on– the–job experience against the unit standards completed for roughly between 6 – 8 months of the year.
On completion thereof learners will be required to complete summative assessments against the assessment criteria as listed in each unit standard. Successful learners will receive a National Certificate issued by the relevant SETA’s and the credits will be registered on the National Learner Registration Database.
At any time in the future, learners can do level 3 and then level 4 which will be
equivalent to a 3–year apprenticeship leading to a National trade test or they can seek employment at a welding plant and will have the necessary skills to be able to participate in workplace activities.
