What Are Internship Programmes Exactly?

An internship programme is form of employment where people with limited or no experience are given as well as looking at diverse academic backgrounds and recent graduates. 

One of the advantages of internship programmes is that the internship positions can be in any area of the company and at any level, and you can find yourself in an interesting working environment. Some internships are for young people who have just left school - others are for those who have just graduated with a bachelor's degree or diploma.

Paid Internship 2024

One of the most common questions asked about internships is whether you get paid.

In South Africa employers usually recognise that the process of attending work every day costs money when participating in an internship programme. So you should be paid a stipend, or a small payment, to at least cover the costs of your employment. You might need to buy some new clothes for work, and traveling to work each day also costs money.

In 2024 Internships in South Africa should come with some payment. This is better than many internships overseas which are unpaid. This tends to be limiting as only young people from a wealthy background can afford to work on an internship for free. For unemployed young people even the process of job seeking costs money that they may not have.

Work Experience During Internships

Although you will never get rich on an internship, the experience gained while participating in an internship programme is of great value. Even if you have qualifications to place on your CV it is still a problem for many young people who don't have work experience.

Internships are a way of gaining work experience and employers gain extra staff at a lower than normal rate. They normally entail full time work at the employ but it is also possible to have part time internships - although these are not common. 

Seta Internships on our Job Portal

The Setas provide Learnerships and internships for young people. Learnerships are formal programmes that have a legally stipulated stipend to be paid to be each full time learner. Internship opportunities are much more informal as each company can decide on the terms of the internship.

The Seta internship positions are slightly more formal as the Seta, for example the Services Seta, will specify the duration of the internship, how much should be paid to each person on the internship and whether it's full-time or part-time. So when you see the Services Seta, or any of the other Setas, offering internship opportunities you know they will have good standards.
