Abstract

The learnership and apprenticeship systems are in their infancy, but evidence suggests that participation in these pathways has created access to employment at least for some individuals and groups. But who gains from these systems in terms of qualifications certification and employment, and where did they qualify and find jobs? DEAN JANSE VAN RENSBURG has some answers.
