  • provide general non-formal education to adults

During school year 2010/11, 15 496 adult learners registered in the above mentioned activities of the department (522 in formal education and 14 974 in basic and non-formal general adult education.). Most of the learners in no-formal adult education attended language courses (65%) followed by ITC (16 %).
