Learnerships are notoriously difficult to implement successfully. Learner dropout, competition price-war, complex delivery & assessment and Seta reporting compliance, all make for a product easy to sell, but tricky to deliver. At Thrive, we believe Learnerships can be done well and that success can indeed be measured and celebrated:

  • Meaningful competency – ideal recruitment, high-quality training, assessment and workplace support measured by the percentage of learners successfully found competent.
  • Benefits realised – structured, integrated, resourced and cost accurately to ensure a solid business case with smooth execution, maximization of client benefits and lucrative rollouts.
  • Learner entry into the economy – holistic workplace knowledge, skills and attitude that helps ensure learner retention and offers of employment. 
  • Reporting and Seta compliance done accurately and timeously, by members of a skilled and dedicated support team. Measured by timeous certification of learners.

With these primary success indicators in mind, Thrive has developed our Learnership Optimisation Solution to assist accredited providers to deliver their learnerships successfully. These offerings are customised to your learnership, clients, challenges and Seta and are delivered by a specialist Seta compliance consultant with extensive moderation and provider support experience.

There is no doubt that we can improve the way your learnerships are rolled out!
