Adult Basic Education Courses

Greystones Community College has a vision of not only providing an excellent education for our students but to offer additional education and training courses to our wider school community as we develop as a leader in education provision in Greystones. In this regard, we are delighted to team up with Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board and Bray Adult Learning to offer exciting courses to the wider school community from September 2021.

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.

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)

Attendance at these courses is part time and is usually 2 hours a week for 6 to 8 weeks. Classes take place in Greystones Community College in the mornings or afternoons depending on the availability of tutors and course participants. All classes are free of charge. Participants are allowed to work at their own pace in small groups to develop skills and confidence. One to one support is available if needed.

Initially, the following course offering will be provided at Greystones Community College to begin in late September 2021 (subject to demand):

  1. Get connected using ICT (using Goggle services such as Google Classroom)
  2. Study Skills support/Family learning
  3. English as an additional language
  4. Art/Drawing/Ceramics
