Adult Basic Education, Literacy/Numeracy/Digital – THE FIRST STEP 2024-2025

Today, navigating daily activities and tasks can pose challenges for adults struggling with reading, writing, math, or digital skills. These skills are integral to nearly every aspect of our lives, from home to work, encompassing tasks such as reading prescriptions, managing bills, interpreting phone texts, emails, or posters. Effective communication in the world around us relies heavily on these fundamental skills.

Taking the initiative to connect with the South Wexford Adult Literacy Service marks the first crucial step toward embarking on your journey back to education. Our classes are conducted in relaxed settings, tailored to each learner’s pace.

Our dedicated tutors specialise in reading, writing, math, and digital literacy skills (including computers/smartphones) in a systematic, step-by-step manner, designed to boost learners’ confidence.

To start your journey, contact us at 0870943023, and a member of our team will promptly arrange a meeting to discuss your personalised learning plan.

Our service is free and confidential.
