Basic Education of Adults

The basic education of Adults is a priority in this country. We cannot wait until a new generation comes into the workplace with all the required skills. In fact many learners come out of the school system unable to read, write or calculate. The first big boost for basic education of adults came in 2000 when the SA National Initiative also known as SANLI came into being. It was an initiative of the Department of Education to lead basic education of Adults ensuring that the more than 3 million illiterate adults in the country would have access to training and education to ensure that they can gain skills in more languages, develop basic to advanced mathematical skills and learn how to read, write, and communicate effectively as well as learn about Human Rights and life orientation such as HIV awareness.
