Teaching people to read and write as well as other basic literacy skills is part of the adult basic training programme that has been set forth by government. Once a learner has achieved a certain literacy level, the course then addresses other skills that will help an individual become a functioning part of society. Although the course is aimed at improving the education of individuals, it is also there to improve the economy of the country by having a better educated workforce. Adult basic training provides basic skills in literacy and math as well as training in business functions and procedures. This enables an individual to better contribute to his or her employer and the employer being able to run a better class of business.
