Adult Math Classes Are Vital To Gauteng
One region has long been important both commercially and industrially to the economy of South Africa. Acting like a gigantic magnet, it continues to draw large numbers of migrants, all hungry for work and a share in that economy. For many, adult math classes may first be needed if they are to prosper in Gauteng. The lack of basic numeracy among South Africans of working age is a barrier to their individual work prospects while a shortage of adequately numerate employees impacts the workplace in general, creating an urgent need for adult maths classes.
Initially, most efforts to improve basic adult educational levels focussed on reading, writing and language but an evolving economy and technology have led to an equally important requirement for employees with a basic level of numeracy. Adult maths classes in Gauteng and other provinces are now providing a means to rectify this fundamental deficit. Where courses once confined their focus to literacy issues, courses such as those offered under the ABET scheme, now include adult maths classes.
How effective are adult maths classes in Gauteng or, for that matter, anywhere in the country? To be effective these courses, like any other educational endeavour, need to be regulated so as to maintain standards and adequately financed, since most learners are unable to pay fees. Initiatives such as the ABET scheme first introduced in 1994, now enjoy funding from the state, business and NGO’s that makes it possible for them to operate a programme of adult maths classes.
Adult maths classes conducted in Gauteng under the ABET banner may only do so through duly accredited outlets and with the aid of assessors trained to the organization’s stringent standards. Furthermore any outlet that claims to offer genuine ABET courses, including adult maths classes, must hold accreditation that permits them to teach learners and not merely to train assessors. The accreditation status of all recognised centres may be checked online.
