Dear Learnership Selection Panel / or specific name of someone if you have it
Learnership Application: Insert name of qualification / learnership you are applying for
I wish to submit my CV and copies of certificates in order to be considered for the above Learnership.
I believe I am a suitable candidate for the following reasons:
- I applied for jobs but have been turned down. I believe this is because I lack experience. A learnership will provide me with work experience that I can add to my CV thereby increasing my job opportunities in the future.
- Although I am interested in the insert name [ tourism, health and welfare, business administration etc.)] sector, I lack the skills to be employed there.
- I want to be employed in this sector because I am good at list skills relevant to this sector. [ dealing with people, working under pressure, hard physical work, dealing with different cultures, planning events, working in an office, solving maths problems etc.]
- Add any relevant personal or work experience, personal goals etc to show that you do have a real interest in the Learnership field you are applying for. [ I have leadership skills and was a sports captain, prefect etc. I was a member of the Enviro Club at school, this developed my love of nature etc. Offering babysitting services in my community has taught me about running a small business.]
I understand the commitment that will be required of me on this Learnership. I understand that I must work hard and be dedicated throughout. This is an opportunity that I am willing to make sacrifices for as it can change my life.
I would appreciate the opportunity to be interviewed and to answer any further questions you might have for me.
