ADULT LITERACY PROGRAM

ADULT LITERACY PROGRAMME – ENGLISH, MATHS AND ICT

The adult literacy programme is totally distinct from child education. With this form of learning, which is not a traditional schooling method, adults engage in self-sustaining learning activities to acquire knowledge, skills and improve on their general education. This course is specially designed for individuals who are 16 years and above. The main aim of this literacy programme is empowerment: where individuals with no formal education are brought up to speed with current trends and development in general education. For the English literacy programme, the courses are divided into basic, intermediate and advanced levels. At the basic level, basic grammar, punctuation, spelling and speech are taught. At the intermediate level, the focus is on improving writing skills, grammar and reading skills, whereas at the advanced level, we teach adults sentence construction and how they can write essays and paragraphs.
