The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) shows that 8.9 percent of adult South Africans are involved in what it describes as “early-stage entrepreneurship,” in other words, setting up a business or running a new business. Generally, this percentage tends to be larger for less developed economies, and smaller for more developed ones. South Africa’s rate is fair, comparable with Turkey (8.6%), Pakistan (9.1%), and Mexico (10.5%), but far behind China (14.4%) and Brazil (17.5%). Adults with a tertiary education are more likely to start a business.  Nearly 11% of people with a degree start their own business.

Research by the GEM confirms that the survival rate for start-ups in South Africa is low and that the opportunity for entrepreneurial activity is the lowest of all the reviewed developing countries. 8 out of 10 new businesses fail in the first 2 year. Less than 12% of businesses operating today were in business in 1994! 10% of all businesses are less than a year old and 53% are less than five years old.

To achieve the 5 million jobs that the government has set as its target over the coming decade, South Africa will need to produce around 13 600 new manufacturing businesses alone (in rough terms, the country probably needs around 100 000 new firms to achieve this goal). Indeed, South Africa will need a veritable flowering of entrepreneurial endeavour. At present, this is not happening.

One of the key factors influencing people starting a business or failing a business in the first 2 years is skills development and education. 46% of people in small businesses in South Africa indicate that better levels of skills development and education would improvement their chances to be successful.

What is a Learnership?

A Learnership is a structured learning process for gaining theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the workplace leading to a qualification registered on the NQF. Learners participating in a Learnership program have to complete a theoretical, as well as a practical workplace component. The workplace experience must be relevant to the qualification which the learner is registered on. A year in duration, the ratio of days in class or training to the workplace varies, but is approximately 25% theoretical training and 75% practical workplace experience.

What is an Internship?

An internship is a one year program for candidates who have completed their qualification/s and require a guided workplace experience. Please note – In the funded EOH Learnership Project 2015 all interns will be implemented through Learnerships using part qualifications as bridging programmes supporting a guided developmental approach to new employee learners. .

PLEASE NOTE: #

EOH 2016 Learnership Project (Funded)

Whilst yet to be confirmed, the 2016 EOH Learnerships will commence in the 2nd quarter of this 2016 calendar year (1 April – 30 June). All Business Units will be communicated to when the project is able to commence. If as a BU you would like to benefit from the financial support provided, you must wait for the initiation of the project and engage ProServ in sourcing and signing up any learners.

Any learners registered outside of this project will be for the BU account, both for services provided by ProServ and the Learner stipend and related costs.
