A learnership is a work-based approach to learning and gaining qualifications for permanent and contract staff and includes both structured work experience (practical) and structured institutional learning (theory). Various funding options and tax benefits are available for Learnerships in the form of tax deductions, exemption from SDL and UIF payments for learners, and SETA grants.

The employer may claim an amount on commencement and again on completion of the learner per year that they progress through the learnership. The tax deduction (to be claimed from SARS as per the Income Tax Act 2009):
