ABET and best practice

Adult Basic education and Training service providers must be fully accredited in order to provide employers with the assurance that any program put in place to raise the literacy and numeracy skills of the workforce will be effective. Without accreditation any qualification in line with NQF requirements will not be valid and will not allow the employee to proceed to the next level of ABET training. It is thus the responsibility of the employer to ensure that any service provider is registered with the correct government agency or department and that the training that they provide is in line with industry best practices.
