Media Works is a leading provider of adult education in South Africa. Established over 2 decades ago, Media Works has brought training excellence to the market, empowering the lives of over a million South Africans.


The formation of Media Works arose out of the need for Adult Education Training (AET) to meet the needs of the disadvantaged sector of the South African population. Multimedia was identified as an important and effective AET tool for imparting these valuable numeracy and literacy skills. Media Works commenced trading in March 1996 with founding members Jackie Carroll and Dennis Lamberti, and at that time employed a total of two staff.

Interactive Tutor (PTY) LTD t/a Media Works is registered as a Private College with the Department of Higher Education and Training
(Registration No.2019/FE07/018)

Media Works achieved a world first by launching its AET material in Braille. The new Unified English Braille Code (UEBC) was used, which allowed Media Works to extend its courses to another sector of disadvantaged South Africans, who previously had not had access to Adult Education. Media Works launched its AET material for the deaf at the same time.

Media Works launched Accelerate, a complete rewrite of the AET material for Communication and Mathematical Literacy.

Media Works implemented its Emerging Provider support programme.

Media Works has over 3000 corporate and
government clients as well as numerous NGOs,
schools and other training institutions.

The AET learner base exceeds 
1 000 000
 learners and has managed to
maintain an exceptional pass rate.


Media Works has been audited by BDO Verification services for compliance with the B-BBEE Act No. 53 of 2003 and the full Generic Scorecard (all seven elements) of the Codes of Good Practice on Black Economic Empowerment released by the DTI in February 2007. We achieved a B-BBEE Rating of a Level 2 Contributor and a Procurement Recognition Level of 125%. In addition, Media Works is also considered to be a Value Added Supplier.
