The Adult Literacy Programme provides adults with a chance to learn basic skills which may be needed for employment, further study and for use in their daily lives
There are opportunities to develop a range of skills in areas such as reading, writing, spelling, numeracy, form filling, letter writing, computer literacy and personal development.
The tuition is free of charge and may be offered on a one to one basis or in a group setting, depending on individual needs.
Students can choose what they want to learn (by identifying their interests and needs) and they can work at their own pace.
A range of accredited courses at QQI Level 1 to 3 are also available.
Other programmes include;
Intensive Tuition in Core Skills
This course develops core skills in reading, writing, communications, maths and computers. Participants study in small groups for six hours a week for a 14-week block. This course is a good starting point for adults who left school early and wish to get back into education.
These courses provide core skills needed for the modern workplace. Participants develop their communication, maths and ICT skills in a small group setting.
Family Learning Programmes
These courses recognise that parents are the primary teachers of their children. They provide support for parents/guardians and are an opportunity to discover the fun of learning together.
