Learner readiness by

In partnership with TSIBA Ignition Academy, members of The Knowledge Trust will get access to a free, zero-rated and fully online Learnership Readiness Programme. The content is specifically designed to give young people the best possible chance at getting and thriving in a Learnership.

Objective of the Programme

The main objective of this programme is to maximise a candidate’s chance of success when embarking on a learnership. The programme consists of a number of tools and tips to help the candidate understand what a learnership is and how he/she can achieve a positive outcome.

The aim here is to develop healthy habits that will help the candidate navigate the learning journey. We will provide useful and practical tips to develop these habits.

In his book called The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, first published in 1989, Stephen R Covey, describes 7 habits that people who want to succeed in anything, should adopt. We will channel these 7 habits in this programme to guide you to adopt a winning approach to complete a learnership successfully.

The Seven Modules

MODULE 1:
Get Proactive

Before you start a learning / study programme or even a new job, you must take time to get to know your surroundings and your environment. This creates familiarity and allows you to know what resources you need, who to go to when you need assistance and clarifies expectations. Here are some of the things that you’ll learn in this module.

During the orientation programme, you will be introduced to all the role players. You need to study the responsibilities carefully. 

MODULE 2:
Set goals and focus on outcomes

This Module focuses on one topic. Learn to set SMART Goals. Now that you know what you will need to achieve to complete the learnership, set milestones and objectives to get there.

MODULE 3:
Prioritise to optimise your effectiveness

Module 3 focuses on how well you manage your time. Effective people value each moment that they spend on meaningful tasks. Ineffective people waste valuable time on unimportant tasks.In this module, you will develop healthy habits to get rid of time wasters and poor time management habits by applying effective time management strategies. This is done by first identifying the common time management mistakes that you make and finding ways to get rid of them. Then apply known time management strategies to make the most of each valuable moment during the learnership.

MODULE 4:
Adopt a winning attitude

The mind can be a powerful tool to achieve success. A positive mindset leads to a positive attitude towards everything you do, while a negative mindset eats away at your potential to succeed. To build confidence, you need to enhance your communication skills as well as your conflict resolution skills.In this Module, you will learn the importance of adopting a winning attitude in your interactions with others. You will learn how to make the most out of mutually beneficial relationships. The module covers the following topics:

MODULE 5:
Assessments and how to achieve competence

There is no such thing as a stupid question, only an uninformed one.To successfully complete a learnership you must complete a number of assessments. Assessments could take the form of assignments, projects or tests. To name a few.Learnership assessments focus on evidence collection and gathering. The evidence must show that you can theoretically and/or practically apply the knowledge that you learnt on the course. To be found competent you will be judged on the quality of this evidence. The wonderful thing about learnership assessments is that you are given second chances to obtain evidence if your first attempt fails. You are also allowed to seek assistance from your mentors or other credible sources. The topics discussed in this module include:

MODULE 6:
Find synergy

Through the course of the learnership, you will be required to use a number of skills that will help you to gather meaningful evidence and to stay on course. This Module focuses on topics that build healthy cooperation habits These skills can also be considered as lifeskills and include topics such as:

MODULE 7:
Achieve balance

Remember that now and then everyone needs to find a bit of balance to achieve success. It’s a give and take. You will need to use a great deal of energy, time and sheer will to get through a learnership. Remember that nothing worth achieving comes easily. You need to work hard but at the same time, find balance and adopt good habits to keep your mind and body sharp and in stealth mode.In this module, you will cover topics that provide tips to renew, re-energize, revitalise and sharpen your skills.
