         Implementation
                 to
   Joint Monitoring Committee

Life & Status of Children, Youth &

        01 November 2002
          Skills Development Act
              (Act 58 of 1998)
Learnerships:

A SETA may establish a learnership if –
• the learnership consists of a structured learning component;
• the learnership includes practical work experience;
• the learnership would lead to a qualification registered by
  SAQA and related to an occupation;
• the intended learnership is registered with the Director General
  in the prescribed manner.

Target group for Learnerships are: People in employment 18(1)
And new entrants 18(2)
     Example ? Learning to drive

1. Pass your learner’s license – which means you
   must learn the road signs + rules of the road
   in theory – and be tested on your theoretical
   knowledge.
2. Then you drive under the supervision of a person
   who has already passed their test.
3. Finally you undergo a practical test on the roads
   and pass or fail on whether you can show you
   can actually drive.
    WHERE ARE THE CONSTRAINTS?
   Learnerships not yet available in all key areas
   Employment places linked to areas of demand or
    opportunity?
    – Private sector / Public sector
 Contract complexity
 Issues of provision –providers with the necessary
  expertise to deliver the new learnerships to scale
 Employment services – how are we going to inform,
  and then guide young learners into the new
  programmes?
 Current employees – cooperation, selection and
  training of learners, monitoring?
 Funding questions – who pays for what?
 Exit strategy for learners at the end of learnership?
 System management?
