Literacy Education for Adults
The National Institute for Lifelong Education (NILE)
Supports improvements in basic livelihood and social participation to design new opportunities for illiterate and low-educated adult learners, through literacy programs and through the academic career acknowledgement system.
Literacy education programs
Select and foster regional institutes and support the program operation fees of literacy education institutes.
Academic career acknowledgement system for adult learners
This is a system to help adult learners receive primary and middle school diplomas through participation in education programs in accordance with Article 40 of the Lifelong Education Act.
Learners who attend the literacy education programs established or designated by the municipal/provincial superintendents of education can receive a certificate of educational achievement after going through the program completion screening set by the municipal/provincial education offices.
NILE supports the establishment and designation of municipal/provincial offices' literacy education programs, and pursues various businesses such as the development of textbooks, workbooks, teacher's tutorials for illiterate learners, and the preparation of teachers for literacy education.
Literacy education week
In order to improve the social perception of "literacy," [Literacy Week] has been created to include various events including exhibitions of illustrated poems and forums (September 8).
