The Adult Learning Service provides literacy tuition in a supportive environment for adults who need support with their reading, writing, maths or spelling. Literacy tuition helps learners to improve their listening and speaking skills, and enables learners to employ everyday technology to communicate and handle information. Learners acquire more than just the technical skills of communication (reading, writing and spelling): the personal, social and economic dimensions empower the individual to reflect on their situation, explore new possibilities and initiate change.
Basic education courses include Family Learning programmes, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and Childcare. Certification is available in both single modules and full certificates. Learners can take Junior and Leaving Certificate subjects, while classes to assist adults with literacy and numeracy are also available.
The service is free and may be offered on a one-to-one basis or in small groups depending on individual needs. Classes are available in locations and at times suited to the participants. Enquiries, in full confidence, are welcome at the numbers below:
