  • ISSN : 1729-1070



The Department of Adult Education at the University of Botswana offers professional training to people from different walks of life. However, the Department does not know what becomes of graduates of the adult education programmes once they complete their studies. The purpose of this paper is to illuminate adult education as a viable profession for graduates, based on the demand - supply curve. The paper is informed by the perspectives of stakeholders and potential employees. A qualitative study was conducted and from the data gathered, there is evidence to suggest that the vocation of adult education graduates is evolving rapidly in Botswana. The data reveals that there are greater opportunities in the public service and limited opportunities in the NGOs while there is potential for growth in the private sector.
