What is Shoprite Learnership

The Shoprite Learnership is a training program designed to provide learners with practical work experience and skills training in the retail industry. The program is offered by Shoprite Holdings, one of the largest retailers in Africa, with over 2,800 stores across 15 countries.

The learnership is open to individuals who are between the ages of 18 and 35 and have a Grade 12 or equivalent qualification. The program typically lasts for 12 months and covers a range of topics, including customer service, merchandising, stock control, and cash handling. Learners will also receive on-the-job training and work experience in various departments within a Shoprite store.

During the program, learners will receive a monthly stipend to cover their living expenses. The stipend amount varies based on the region and specific program being offered. In addition to the stipend, learners will also have access to Shoprite’s employee benefits, such as medical aid, pension fund contributions, and staff discounts.

Upon completion of the program, learners will receive a certificate and may have the opportunity to be employed by Shoprite or other retail companies. The program is designed to provide learners with the skills and experience they need to succeed in the retail industry and to help address the skills gap in South Africa’s workforce.
