Umalusi is responsible for assuring that the level of assessment of learners attending Adult Basic Education and Training are of a national standard. It also ensures that the examinations at the end of each level are dealt with in line with the General and Further Education and Training Quality Assurance Act of 2001. The learner will also be assessed by Umalusi if they have failed the examination and proof of evidence will be submitted to the council. It is up to the facilitator to ensure that the learner is ready to take the examination and POE is there to determine whether the learner was sufficiently educated upon examination. No matter which process determines the knowledge of the learner, a certificate will be issued by Umalusi at the end of each level.
