Who regulates the level of learnerships in Namibia?
The Namibian training authority regulates the level of learnerships and their earnings. The amount you get will depend on your field and employer, as well as the sector in which your company operates. The minimum wage for learners is set at N$1 805 per month.
However, it is important to put it in mind that some sectors pay more than others.
It is important to note that not all learnerships pay the same amount. Some sectors offer better salaries than others. For example, the mining sector pays more than hospitality. However, it is still possible to earn a decent living in other fields such as retail and tourism.
- Mining: $3 500 – $7 000 per month
- Hospitality: $2 300 – $5 500 per month
In addition to these averages, you should also take into consideration your specific job title and employer when determining how much you can expect to earn during the course of your learnership.
