Adult Literacy

Adult literacy, known locally as the Learning for Living programme, offers tuition to adults who need to build strong foundation skills in reading, writing, spelling, mathematics, numbers and computers. The programme offers learning that is tailored to the needs of each student in a supportive and friendly environment.

Accreditation

Courses can be accredited or non-accredited.

  • Accreditation can be offered though QQI Major and Minor Awards from Level 1 to Level 3.
  • Non-accredited courses are short courses designed to meet specific training needs.

Fees

All courses are free.

How to apply

The ETB Adult Literacy Service is available through your nearest FET centre and in some local community/resource centres.  You can join at any stage during the year.  Students and tutors interact on an equal basis and classes focus on the needs of the learner as an individual.

Adult Literacy is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning (PEIL) 2014-2020.
