Adult Basic Education (ABE)

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) Service is a free, confidential, friendly and flexible service which is available to people over 16 years of age and not in full time education.

Attendance is part time and can vary from 2 hours to 8 hours per week.  Classes take place morning, afternoon and evening.  Students are allowed to work at their own pace in small groups to develop skills and confidence.   One to one support is available if needed.

Priority is given to adults who did not complete Leaving Certificate, are unemployed or on other social welfare payment and/or have been out of education for some time.   We also work with those who wish to improve career opportunities.

Students are offered the opportunity to work towards accredited courses such as QQI.

The service is for those who wish to :-

  • Return to education
  • Brush up on basic skills such as reading, writing, maths and IT
  • Up-skill or re-skill for work
  • Gain confidence and work towards a recognised Certificate
  • Develop the language skills needed to live, work and study in Ireland (ESOL)
