Galway Adult Basic Education

Literacy & Numeracy

Group Classes

These are fun and welcoming classes with professional teachers who are there to guide you and help you.
As adults we are used to taking charge, these classes allow you to do just that.  It maybe your spellings, your writing, your reading or your computer skills that you feel are holding you back, don't let it.  We can help and with the others in your class you can achieve your goals.  Learning is for pleasure and for life.

Themed Literacy

If you are interested in improving your literacy skills while learning a new skill, you might like to try a themed literacy course. We have occasional courses in stained glass, quilting, pottery, cookery, horticulture and arts and crafts.
