The new IT Technical Support Learnership is based on a cutting-edge Learnership model that uses Blended Learning: an approach that innovatively takes advantage of both digital learning and the tried-and-tested benefits of instructor-led learning. Digital learning offers exceptional convenience, pace, choice and flexibility, while instructor-led learning, in a face-to-face learning environment guided by expert facilitators, brings structure to the learning experience.
