BMW Learnership Programme 2017 – 2018

Bayerische Motoren Werke (Bavarian Motor Works), more commonly known as BMW, is a German automobile, motorcycle and engine manufacturing company founded in 1916. BMWs have been assembled in South Africa since 1968, initially at Praetor Monteerders’ plant in Rosslyn, near Pretoria, until BMW bought it out in 1975 after which it became BMW South Africa, the first wholly owned subsidiary of BMW to be established outside Germany. They offer a variety of programs to talented individuals, one of these are the BMW Learnership.

Mindful of the government’s desire to address the Skills shortages, unemployment, and poverty within the country via its National Skills Development Strategy, BMW buys into this idea by focusing on Training and Development of its own staff as well as offering various bursaries and learnerships every year.

The concept of a “learning organization” has been entrenched in the makeup of BMW for many years, as it rises to meet the development and training needs of the business. To this end, the company has a comprehensive suite of training programmes which it reviews and updates constantly.

BMW has over the past two decades, positioned itself well ahead of government’s objectives and was awarded the prestigious “Investors in People” accreditation which focuses on Training and Development.

BMW also believes in strengthening and developing the competency base of management and enhancing technical skills to meet the ever- progressing technical demands of the automotive business, thereby creating and enabling promotional opportunities from within.

BMW’s training and Development initiatives significantly contribute to employment equity by developing skills at all levels. The company actively supports mechatronics, atomtronics, engineering and logistics learnerships, which are open to those with the necessary qualification.

BMW learnerships consist of theoretical and practical training and afford the learner the opportunity to learn the skills and gain the knowledge, acceptable workplace behaviour and attitude that is required in the workplace.

The BMW Apprentice Level 1 Learnership

This is outcomes-based learning, and the learnership is based on a legally binding contract between the learner, the employer, and the service provider.

BMW Learnership Requirements

There are certain requirements for being accepted into this learnership:

Minimum Requirements

  • You must be a South African citizen
  • You must be in possession of a Standard 10/Grade 12 Certificate; or be in possession of a Further Education and Training Certificate NQF (Level 4) with a pass rate in Mathematics and Science
  • Applicants must be in possession of a driver’s licence
  • You must be computer literate in Office Suite
  • A tertiary technical qualification would be advantageous
  • Technical motor industry experience would be useful

Job Specification

  • Attend BMW SA Apprentice 1st level training course
  • Ensure proper administration of workshop documents and parts are collected
  • Responsible for visual (exterior) vehicle inspection within the workshop
  • Responsible for visual (interior) vehicle inspection within the workshop

Preference will be given to applicants who have additional tertiary technical qualifications or technical motor industry experience.

The Learnership Programme will consist of theoretical as well as practical workplace (on-the-job) training. You will provide support to Technicians in preparing, servicing and repairing of all vehicles while also obtaining other necessary knowledge and skills.

Each individual learnership offered by BMW will state the dealership that is offering the apprenticeship, e.g. in the Sandton area in Johannesburg. Training will take place at this dealership, and you will be responsible for all your own expenses such as relocation, transport and accommodation; it is therefore in your best interests to ensure that you take a position close to where you live.

Once you have completed the BMW SA Apprentice learnership programme, you will become a qualified BMW Technician.

BMW Learnership Application Process

In order to apply for the BMW SA Apprentice learnership programme, you must complete an application form in your own handwriting.

  • You can apply online here
  • Should the above link NOT work, please access the main site and look for the learnership for which you wish to apply
  • When applying for the learnership make sure that you specify the learnership post that you are applying for (e.g. BMW SA Apprentice learnership programme, Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa)
  • Make sure that you sign the application form yourself
  • Attach certified copies of all of your  certificates and of your Identity Document (these copies must have been certified within the last 3 months – you can get this done at any Police Station)

Please Note:

  • Application forms that are late or unsigned will not be accepted
  • Photocopied forms will not be accepted

BMW Learnership Information

As different BMW Dealerships offer learnerships at different times but usually close during August, applications for the above BMW learnership may already have closed. More may open later in the year, or early in the new year. You can keep checking whether there are learnerships open for application yet by checking the local newspapers or by checking on the main BMW Website or by clicking on this link and then selecting the option for you.

  31. Muhammed says:

    Dear BMW
    I am aware of the fact that the posts available are looking for applicants that hold the credits of Maths and science, however I do not have science but I do have Pure Maths. I am really interested in taking up this career as becoming a qualified BMW technition ( N4 ) as I am really passionate about cars and BMW’s in particular. My father has been in the motor industry for the past 25 years and currently still has our workshop running based in Lenasia meaning I have been exposed to cars and engines from a young boy and now I am ready to pursue my dream of working for a BMW dealership attaining the 4 levels required to become a BMW technition. I will dedicate my achievements to the company that I qualify under as my dream is to work for a BMW dealership for life, and hopefully one day becoming the foreman of that specific dealership. I truely will be the best applicant. Thank you
