If you would like to assist your work force in improving their literacy and basic mathematics skills, enquire about the Adult Basic Education and Training programme. The course does have a cost attached as the facilitator must be compensated for his or her services and the costs of the course material must be covered. There is also an examination fee that must be paid at the end of each level so that the learners can receive their certificates. All these cost may be too high for you to be able to cover the cost for your entire workforce and low income earners may not be able to contribute to the cost. In such a case you can apply to the National Student Financial Aid Scheme to assist you in giving your staff the gift of an education.
