Intensive Tuition in Adult Basic Education (ITABE)


The Intensive Tuition in Adult Basic Education (ITABE) project provides an intensive tuition opportunity to adults who wish to improve their Key Skills. The aim of the programme is to provide participants, in groups of 6-8 students, with an opportunity to access six hours of tuition per week over a 14-week period as opposed to the average of two hours per week currently provided.

The ITABE course includes a combination of the following:

  • Communication Skills: Reading / Writing / Spelling / Numeracy
  • Learning to Learn: Understanding Learning Styles / Study Skills / Educational Guidance
  • Introduction to IT: Basic Computers / Internet

Students are given the opportunity to gain QQI accreditation if they so choose but this is an option and not a course requirement. All participants must have their literacy / numeracy skills assessed at the beginning and end of the course using a specifically designed assessment tool. This assessment helps the tutors to design a course to meet the student’s needs.

To apply for any of the courses outlined above please contact your local Adult Literacy Organiser or log onto
