Host a Learnership Opportunity

The FPD LearnerSHIPS Programme is a route to occupational or professional NQF qualification which is vocational, education and training (VET) for Matriculants who through a 12-month employment contract with FPD gain practical experience whilst they acquire this qualification.

FPD will be expanding their Learnership services to all sponsors who want to implement a programme that will leave our learners with a ground level professional qualification recognised by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET).

To promote the advancement of human capacity development and provide adequate technical assistance to the different sectors throughout South Africa.

Learners will receive training in soft skills as well as experience in their learnership field, leaving their learnership with a qualification and experience to aid them in establishing a solid career for themselves.
