National Certificate in Adult Literacy Education (Vocational Tutor/Lecturer)/Principles of Adult Learning
- Adults are self-directed learners and are capable of independent learning.
- Adult learners draw on their previous experiences of life and learning, and bring these experiences to bear on new learning.
- Learning needs to be directly related to the developmental tasks of an adult‟s social roles and directly applicable to real-life issues.
- Motivation factors for adult learners are deep-seated and internally derived.
