ABET stands for Adult Basic Education and Training and is aimed at providing uneducated South Africans with the skills necessary to enhance their quality of life. ABET learning begins at the grade 1 level and continues through to grade 12 with matric certification at the end of the course. The course is accelerated but is designed to meat the unique needs of each learner. The more time you spend studying the quicker you can complete the course. ABET provides a facilitator, not a teacher, who is there to assist the learner in the learning process. Added value courses that will further improve a learners’ ability to function in a working environment can also be provided.
