Abstract

SEA, the Mexican at distance system of Secondary Education for Adults is characterized by being an educational program on basic education whose aim is to fulfil needs and characteristics of the working young and adult population who has not finished nor studied secondary school. This educational proposal is based on the use of certain printed materials, TV programs and Saturday tutorship bearing in mind the adult's learning achievement processes. Furthermore, its aim is to acknowledge that the learner is an active being, capable of developing study skills to achieve autonomous learning. In this paper we emphasize on Saturday tutorship on numeracy as an observant instrument which has produced information on the system's efficiency. Especially regarding the tutors requirements in order to promote learning autonomy.
