The Letsema Learnership Programme is an annual 1-year Banking and Microfinance sector learnership that is funded by BANKSETA. BANKSETA pays for the recruitment of those who have finished matric (Grade 12) into learnerships, as well as paying a training provider to train the learners, a monthly stipend (allowance) for each learner, and learner support.
The registered employer hosts the learners and provides on-the-job workplace training for them. Theoretical training is also given, in a classroom setting by a registered, accredited training provider, and at a venue organized by the employer.
The banking sector in South Africa is committed to transformation, and the Letsema learnerships form part of the government?s National Skills Development Strategy to create skills and lessen poverty and unemployment.
Letsema learnerships are available to those with the necessary qualifications. They consist of both theoretical and practical training in the key role the banking sector plays in forming the economic, social and political landscape in South Africa.
This learnership will give you the opportunity to learn the skills and gain the knowledge, acceptable workplace behaviour and attitude that is required in the Banking and Microfinance sector.
Learners will earn a stipend for the duration of the learnership.
There are certain requirements for being accepted into this learnership:
There is no guarantee of employment once you complete the Letsema learnership, but about 75% ? 85% of those who successfully completed the learnership over the past few years were offered permanent employment in the banking sector.
It is important that you take this learnership seriously and show your willingness, positive attitude, motivation to do well and potential at all times as this is what will get you job offers.
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.
In order to apply for the Letsema Learnership, you must complete an application form in your own handwriting.

Employment Equity targets will apply. You must be able to attend formal training blocks and will be responsible for your own transport costs.
If you have not been contacted for an interview by the end of October you should assume that your application was unsuccessful.
