Adult education and training is a crucial part of the reconstruction and transformation of SA society, and a means to redress the educational injustices of the past. It is a pivotal part of building a just and equitable society by providing good quality education and training to adults who wish to finish their basic education and achieve a nationally recognised qualification. 

Yet, despite its importance, adult education and training is often seen as a poor cousin within the education and training sector and does not receive the attention it deserves. The future of adult education and training is at a crossroads in SA, heavily affected by the volatility in the political and economic environments, and as such requires focused attention if it is to survive.
