Adult Basic Education Training

There are an estimated 3.3 million illiterate adults in South Africa. This has placed ABET as a high priority on the agenda of the government and all SETAs. ABET is a great vehicle for companies to provide the foundational training their staff needs to be able to cope with higher levels of training, such as learnerships, in-house training and skills development training. ABET is also an exceptionally effective vehicle for not only B-BBEE score points, skills levy rebates and union negotiations, but a real tool for improving company communication channels at all levels.

Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET) is available to adults who want to finish their basic education. An outcomes-based programme, ABET aims to provide basic learning tools, knowledge and skills, and provides participants with nationally recognised qualifications.
