Hard work pays dividends for dedicated ABET Learners
10 February 2006
Hard work and dedication has ultimately paid dividends for over 3000 personnel who have attended qualification certificates through the Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET) course offered by Secudac (Pty) Ltd to members of the South African Police Service (SAPS).
Certificates of completion will be issued to successful candidates at graduation ceremonies countrywide starting on Monday, 13 February 2006, and ending on Tuesday, 7 March 2006.
A total number of three thousand four hundred and nineteen (3419) graduates will be presented with certificates at 10 respective ceremonies nationwide. The ABET course was presented for the first time in 2004.
These graduates are SAPS employees who fit the description 'previously disadvantaged'. They chose to take responsibility for their own circumstances and with hard work and by making use of opportunities coming their way, find themselves today empowered to position themselves more favourably with regard to their careers.
The enthusiasm with which these learners participate in this programme with the aim of enhancing amongst others, their literacy skills, is tangible proof of the fact the South African Police Service embarked on the right road to belief and invests in its employees, regardless on what level an employee might be.
The more educated any person becomes, the better chance such a person has of improving the quality of his or her personal life with the result that such persons can be better utilized by the employer.
The successful completion of yet another ABET year will benefit the individuals involved, the South African Police Service as an organisation as well as the community at large, as service delivery in general will surely be improved. The South African Police Service remains committed to the development of all its employees, indeed the most valuable asset that deserves this type of support and investment.
