ABET is a constitutional right

Section 29(1) of the Constitution of RSA states that:
“everyone has the right to a basic education, including adult education… which the state, through reasonable measures, must make progressively available  and accessible.”It is estimated that 50% of South Africa’s population is functionally illiterate

Around 13,2 million people in South Africa have less than a Grade 9 education (nine years of schooling) and a further 4,2 million adults have no schooling at all.


ABET is critical to the success of government’s aim of skills development to ensure sustainable growth in the economy.  The goal of ABET is to enable learners to acquire the necessary skills to become functionally numerate and literate and to enable them to further a career path.  Although the need for ABET varies from sector to sector, the major economic sectors regard ABET as a national priority.  Employers are therefore encouraged to implement ABET within the workplace. 

ABET provides an opportunity for all South African citizens to learn continuously. The gained knowledge and skill ensures that people who complete ABET become an asset to their families, their communities and ultimately to South Africa.

is flexible, developmental and targeted at the specific needs of particular audiences and provides access to nationally recognised certificates.
