Many adults have been unable to complete their schooling due to social, political or economic factors.
Because of the national climate in the past some people were denied the opportunity to develop even the most essential literacy skills such as reading, writing and basic problem solving.
Through outcomes-based programmes, ABET equips adults with the tools, knowledge and skills to improve their lives.
Abet is targeted at the specific needs of audiences and ultimately opens the door to a nationally recognized certificate.
Abet centres also offer a place for adults to obtain their matric certificate.
The four levels of Abet training is equivalent to Grades R to 9. Abet includes training in:
- language, literacy and communication
- mathematical literacy, mathematics and mathematical sciences
- natural science
- arts and culture
- life orientation
- human and social science
- economic and management science.
Learners can also choose to take courses in:
- small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs)
- wholesale and retail
- travel and tourism
- applied agriculture
- early childhood development
- ancillary health care.
Its never too late to learn.
