Learning starts with understanding the rights of learners. Learner has the right to:
• Have learning materials relevant to learners needs
• Be relevant to personal interest and choice

• Provide learners with the opportunity to evaluate their own progress
• Provide learners with the freedom to learn in his/her own time at his/her own pace
• Have clear learning outcomes
• Be based on national unit standards
• Include outcomes-based assessment practices

All learners have had some experience in learning, some would be positive and other would be very negative. The trainer must therefore understand that learners might experience learning blocks. These learning blocks can influence the way the learners receive and remember information.
