What is a Bankseta learnership?

Bankseta learnerships are structured learning programs that provide practical and theoretical training to individuals who want to develop skills and knowledge in the banking and financial services sector. The Banking Sector Education and Training Authority (Bankseta) is a skills development and training organization that provides learnerships, internships, and other development programs in the banking industry in South Africa.

A Bankseta learnership typically combines on-the-job training and classroom-based learning, with the aim of producing skilled and competent professionals who can contribute to the banking and financial services sector. The learnerships are offered to people who are currently unemployed, as well as those who are employed but want to improve their skills or change their career paths.

The duration of Bankseta learnerships varies depending on the specific program and level, but they can range from 12 to 24 months. Some of the common areas of focus for Bankseta learnerships include banking operations, financial accounting, risk management, compliance, and customer service.

Bankseta learnerships are designed to provide participants with a nationally recognized qualification, as well as practical work experience, which can increase their employability in the banking and financial services sector. Successful learners may be absorbed by their host employers or be assisted with job placements in the industry.
