UTi Learnership Programmes

UTi Learnership Programmes are open to candidates who fulfil the basic requirements. The learnership is for 12 months and consists of both theoretical and practical training.

Depending on which learnership you choose, you will gain work experience and a nationally recognised qualification in one of the following:

  • Bookkeeping (Gauteng only).
  • Business Administration
  • Freight Forwarding
  • Freight Handling
  • Information Technology
  • Project Management (Gauteng only)

Requirements

There are certain requirements for being accepted into these learnerships:

Minimum Requirements

  • You must be a South African citizen
  • You must be in possession of a Standard 10/Grade 12 Certificate; or
  • You must be able to communicate professionally in English (written and verbal)
  • You must be able to work in a team as well as individually
  • You must be able to work accurately and with attention to detail
  • You must have the ability to grasp and process new information
  • You must be able to work without supervision.

Other Requirements

  • You must be punctual for work
  • You must be able and willing to commit to a 12-month, full-time contract
  • You must be experienced in using MS Office and Outlook (Internet and E-Mail).
  • You must have some knowledge of the basic products and services offered by a logistics/distribution company

Successful candidates will be entered into a 12 month, full-time learnership contract. Time off will be given to attend theoretical training where required; these classes will take place during work hours.

A monthly stipend of R3 200 will be paid for the duration of the learnership.

The learnership contract is a legally binding contract and any irregularity or violation of the terms of the agreement will be dealt with in accordance with Sections 17 and 18 of the Skills Development Act, 97 of 1998.

UTI Learnership Application Process

In order to apply for any of the above learnerships you must complete an application form in your own handwriting.

  • You can get the online application form by clicking on the link provided in the online advert at the Career Junction or registering online with UTi
  • When applying for the learnership make sure that you specify the learnership post that you are applying for (e.g. UTi Project Management: Gauteng Learnership)
  • Make sure that you sign the application form yourself
  • Attach certified copies of all your certificates and 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

Remember that during your workplace training you will be responsible for your own accommodation, transport and meal costs. It is therefore suggested that you apply for a UTI Learnership in the Region closest to where you live.

It is important that you apply yourself to both the theoretical training and the on-the-job training and show that you are dedicated and have a lot of potential, as this is what employers are looking for and could make the difference between you being selected for a permanent position upon completion of your learnership or not.

Although UTi does employ many of the learners on the successful completion of their learnership, a learnership is no guarantee of employment. The workplace experience and qualification obtained during this learnership will, however, assist you a lot in your search for employment.
