The FET Learnership in Corrections is one of our flagship skills development programmes. It is not only aimed at creating a pool of entry level Correctional Officials, but it is also our response to the call, by President Jacob Zuma, to contribute to youth employment and poverty alleviation.

Our learnership is a prime example of work-integrated learning, being encouraged by the Department of Higher Education and Training, where learners are afforded an opportunity to engage in both theoretical (3 months), and practical (9 months),? learning,? said DCS? Minister Sibusiso Ndebele.

It is also worth mentioning here that South African Government has taken a good step to address unemployment in the country by expanding job opportunities and learnership programmes 2016. The government has taken this step to strengthen the youth by providing them the graduate development programmes or Learnership Jobs in South Africa. According to DCS, the learnership Programme 2017 at Department of Correctional Services is a partnership between DCS and Safety and Security Seta to educate and train the young people as correctional officials.

  11. My feeling is that the youth of aliwal north are discriminated when it comes to being considered for placement on the learnership programme at the goedemoed prison because they are in the eastern cape yet they are the nearest to goedemoed management area in all towns surrounding goedemoed prison,in the past three years since the inception of the learnrship programme the are very people who have been placed on the programme from aliwal north,upon inquiring about this I was told that preference is given to people who reside in the free state regardless how far they stay from goedemoed prison,its unfair to the youth of aliwal north who aspire to be join the correcional services and serve their counry

  12. And in the eastern cape we are very far from prisons that appear in the advert,now where is our alternative that’s the question,pls direct the question to the relevant person
