There is low level of education in the transport sector and it has been necessary to establish a SETA to assist in improving the skills and training of transport employees. The Transport Education and Training Authority (TETA) in conjunction with Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET) aims to provide basic education to illiterate or low skilled employees in the sector. A learner will receive basic reading and writing skills as well as basic numeracy consisting of number recognition and basic mathematical calculations. Life skills as well as health and safety are also addressed through the ABET courses. The course offers a certificate that will allow a learner to further his or her education or apply for a better paid position within a company upon completion of the course.
