dc.description.abstract This study focused on the identification of agricultural skills required to enable retrenched miners in OR Tambo District Municipality to engage in agriculture productively. This is set against the background of the history of mine labour being drawn significantly from thie area, together with recent changes in the mining industry which have resulted in many of the workers returning to the district retrneched and impoversihed. The study reviews the changing nature of work in the context of globalization and its impact on mine workers. It reviews current notions of adult education and the emrgence of such notions as the recognition of prior learning and multi-skilling as a response to these changes. There is also a review of recent policies that are meant to benefit retrenched workers in the rural areas of South Africa. en_ZA
