Accredited Learnerships and Internships

CTU accredited programmes

Skills shortages are a key threat to the future growth of South African businesses, upskilling the existing workforce is vital for securing a business’s future and ensuring it remains competitive. If you or your employees are well trained they’ll be more productive, leading to increased efficiency, and higher profits for your business.

A learnership is a work-based route to a qualification. It is a workplace education and training programme comprising of both structured practical workplace (on-the-job) experience and structured theoretical training. The duration of a learnership is approximately twelve months, and results in a full national qualification. CTU has over 14 registered ICT Learnerships up to NQF Level 5 and 6.

At CTU the learnership best practice is identified as follows:

  • All training is Instructor Led
  • Learners attend training 4hrs per day (morning / afternoon)
  • Learners attend workplace for the rest of day

Various other options can be offered, however CTU suggests the 6 months theoretical session and 6 months’ workplace experience as the best alternative to the above method.

An Internship is a programme designed to give university and technikon graduates an opportunity to extend their academic qualifications with structured workplace exposure and specialised training. The MICT SETA utilizes the concept of internships to fast track high level skills, to offer needed work experience to unemployed graduates and to empower graduates with practical knowledge commensurate with their qualification. CTU provides companies and students the opportunity to develop unemployed youth or graduates through CTU accredited programmes.
