Adult learners who are 21 years and older who have:

  • a General Education and Training Certificate (GETC); or

  • a recognised equivalent qualification obtained at NQF Level which requires two official languages.
  • Adult learners who are 21 years and older with an incomplete Senior Certificate qualification.
