The South African Reserve Bank (SARB), in collaboration with the South African Bank Note Company (RF) Proprietary Limited (SABN) (part of the SARB Group), actively contributes to addressing the country’s skills shortage in the technical and engineering fields through its Work Integrated Learning Programme (WILP).
Participants will be placed at the SARB’s Head Office in Pretoria and will be rotated to the SABN and the South African Mint. Successful applicants will be grouped according to their field of study, namely artisans, technicians or engineering. The programme will start in October 2018 for artisan and technician learners, and in December 2018 for learners in the field of engineering. Participants will receive a work-based learning remuneration for the duration of the programme.
Artisans: This group will comprise learners from technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges who have an N4 certificate but require 24 months’ practical work experience in order to obtain an occupational trade qualification or a trade test. The fields of study provided for are electrical, electronics, plumbing, air-conditioning and carpentry.
Technicians: This group will comprise learners from universities of technology who have an S3 certificate but require 12 months’ practical work experience as a requirement to complete their national diploma. The 12 months will be spread over two years, where the learners do the first six months after completing their S3 block and the other six months after completing their S4 block. The fields of study provided for are electrical, electronic and mechanical.
Engineering: This group will comprise students from universities studying towards a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering and who require practical or vocational work experience as partial requirement to obtain their qualification. The four-month learnership will be spread over two years, where learners complete the first two months while in their third year of study and the other two months while in their fourth year of study. The fields of study provided for are for electrical (heavy current) and mechanical.
