What is Adult Key Skills Education Service – A.K.S.E.S.?

AKSES provides free classes for people who want to improve their reading, writing, spelling, maths or digital and computer skills. The service is aimed at adults who want to :

  • Return to education
  • Brush up on reading, writing, maths and digital skills
  • Up-skill or re-skill for work
  • Gain confidence and work towards a recognised certificate
  • Develop the English language skills needed to live, work and study in Ireland
What level are the classes?

You can learn at a level that suits you, whether you are a complete beginner or just want to brush up. If you wish, you can gain a certificate.

You can gain certification in modules from QQI levels 2 to 4.

We also run lots of non-accredited classes where you can learn for fun with like-minded people.

Contact the adult literacy organiser and service in your area to find out more about classes near you.
