The Application Process

As stated above, applications for the Engen learnership will open its programme yearly and closing dates may be altered for different fields. 

At the end of the application period, a shortlist will be made of potential candidates who will be contacted to discuss the way forward.

Remember to please only send certified copies of all documentation and NOT the original as these cannot be returned.

Adding reference letters, a short bio and a C.V. is beneficial. However, this will not guarantee a spot in the program.

When applying, also ensure that you complete the application form and that you attach all necessary documentation.
