St.Francis Adult Education Centre, Langa, Cape Town


1. Requirements:

  • Generally the only requirement is a desire to learn and a willingness to abide by the rules of the institution.
  • For conventional school subjects, the level of entry will be determined by assessment and based on previous qualifications, if any.
  • For the practical skill courses. An ability to communicate in English (at least verbally) is generally recommended, however, this may very from course to course.
  • For the computer literacy, written and verbal communication is required. Most tutors are African and fluent in at least Xhosa, so it would be possible to enter even if the level of English is not good, but it may handicap the learner's progress.

2. Registration Times:

  • Registration for mainstream schools subjects generally takes place between February and March each year.
  • Registration for other Practical Skills Courses also take place in February each year but may often be registered for even later than that, depending on the Course Co-ordinator / Instructor.
  • Registration for the Computer Literacy course takes place throughout the year as it is a modular course with six new intakes during the course of each year. (Enquire directly with the Computer Centre @ Telefax: 021 695 5775 or E-mail: )
