Interactive Tutor is a leading provider of adult education in South Africa. Through the establishment of Media Works over 21 years ago, Interactive Tutor have 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.
Media Works has over 3000 corporate and government clients as well as numerous NGO’s, schools and other training institutions.
The AET learner base is well over 200 000 and our learners have managed to maintain an exceptional pass rate.

The AET learner base exceeds 1 000 000 learners and has managed to maintain an exceptional pass rate.
In 2007 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.
In 2009 Media Works launched Accelerate, a complete rewrite of the AET material for Communication and Mathematical Literacy.
In 2009 Media Works also implemented its Emerging Provider support programme.
