The literacy training basics entail aspects such as effective communication, writing, reading, and applying the skills obtained through literacy training in the workplace. A staggering number of people in South Africa cannot read or write at all. This places them at a severe disadvantage. Through short but effective literacy training courses, we empower people to become skilled in specific languages not only to speak or understand the languages, but also to be able to read and write in the specific languages. Various literacy training levels exist and the learner can either write an exam at the end of a level or hand in a POE to show his or her competency in every aspect of the literacy training course.
