MINISTER for Education Nick Kuman has assured that the Department of Education will work with providers to find how best adult literacy can be promoted in the country.
That assurance was made to the adult literacy providers and students who gathered to launch the adult literacy national campaign in the National Capital District last week.
Kuman said the Government’s priority was to education and it was already making changes to the delivery of education.
He said part of that change must now include embracing adult literacy education.
“We need to support the civil society to enable us to provide education for all citizens.”
He said: “As minister responsible for education I now call for a working partnership between civil society education and the Department of Education to take on board and further the work of adult literacy providers.”
He assured those gathered that he would make sure that national adult literacy policy would be part of a government policy.
“This will allow us to work together and to ensure that your work does not go unnoticed,” Kuman said.
“I will direct my department to call a round table discussion with civil society organisations to find a way forward on how best the government can help in promoting adult literacy.”
He said the tuition fee free funds that the government offered to students in formal education would be extended to those young people attending adult literacy programmes.
