The Non-Formal Primary education programme was rolled out in 2010 in full partnership with the Government of Swaziland. This programme’s aim is to ensure educational access to the children who could not access primary education due to socio-economic challenges at the required age. The age range for these children is 10 – 18 years. Selected primary schools are used to teach the over-aged children after working hours. Current and retired Primary school teachers are recruited to facilitate learning for these children.
Objectives of Non Formal Primary Education
To provide educational access, following the non-formal education route to children who could not access education at the required age.
To provide learners with the means of achieving a qualification equivalent to the Swaziland Primary Certificate awarded at Grade 7. This certificate allows one to proceed to Secondary education; formal or non-formal.
Vocational and Practical Skills Training
Sebenta runs vocational training courses in Building, Carpentry & Joinery, and Sewing. These courses run for nine months each. Learners qualify after completing the Sebenta Post Basic English course. Of late, however, Sebenta has found itself contending with the arrival of people who were in the formal school system to enroll in some or all of these courses. The institute does not turn them away.
