The Department of Correctional Services Learnership Programme
The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) is looking for youth from various communities with appropriate qualifications to enter into the training towards acquiring the Further Education and Training (FET) Certificate in Corrections Services Learnership (NQF Level 4). The learners will be trained in the areas of rehabilitation of offenders through correction and human development in a secure, safe and humane detention or under the community-based correctional supervision. English will be used as the medium of instruction. Enrolment in the learnership does not guarantee permanent employment in the Department.

The application form can be obtained at the nearest Management Area/Community Corrections/Correctional Centres/ Regional Offices and/or Head Office. The forms are also available on the DCS website (www.dcs.gov.za) under “Forms”. Please take note that these forms are not for sale. Please report any form of corruption to the Departmental Investigation Unit Hotline on 0800 701 701 or fax number 012 323 7901.
