On behalf of our sponsors, FPD implements learnership programmes that will leave our learners with a ground level professional qualification or post qualification work experience. 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.
The Pharmacy Assistant Learnership Programme was established in 2009, to date this programme has supported over 2 849 learners at both basic and post basic level.
In 2017, SHIPS introduced a new Learnership for disabled learners in Business Administration. Various private sector partners fund this learnership that aims to alleviate poverty among our disabled youth, by improving their employability through learnership opportunities. To date we have successfully trained 481 learners, and currently have more than 64 learners’ enrolled in the business administration learnership.
