The Engineering and Information Technology Learnerships

These Vodacom Engineering and Technology learnerships are outcomes-based learning and based on a legally binding contract between the learner, the employer, and the service provider.

The Learnership Programme is for a period of one year (12 months) and consists of:


About 30% of the training will consist of theoretical training which will be conducted in a classroom-type atmosphere.

  • You will be supplied with all training materials
  • You will be expected to compile a Portfolio of Evidence of all your work; this will be submitted for assessment at the end of your learnership

Workplace Training

The remainder of the training will be practical workplace (on-the-job) training.

  • This part of the training will be done at a Vodacom venue specified by the company
  • Learners will receive a monthly stipend during training but are responsible for their own accommodation, meals, and transport

Once both the theoretical (instructional) and practical (workplace) phases have been completed and the Portfolio of Evidence (POE) has been submitted and successfully undergone external verification FET Certificate for the qualification will be issued.

A 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.

Vodacom Learnership Application Process

In order to apply for a Vodacom Learnership, you must complete an application form in your own handwriting.

  • You can download the Application form from the Vodacom website.
  • When applying for the learnership make sure that you specify the learnership post that you are applying for (e.g. Vodacom Engineering and Operations Learnership)
  • Make sure that you sign the application form
  • Attach certified copies of 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)
  • Applications can also be e-mailed to Externalbursars@vodacom.co.za.

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 learnership in the Region or Management Area closest to where you live.
