Adult Learning » Adult Literacy and Numeracy

Maybe you find everyday tasks like managing a household budget, filling in forms, reading complex letters, or helping your child with their homework difficult. Maybe you left school with few or no qualifications. Whatever the reason, there is a range of free adult literacy and numeracy learning activities in your area waiting to be discovered.

Adult literacy and numeracy learning is designed to meet your individual needs and takes place in community venues in your area.

Adults want to improve their skills for a range of reasons, including getting better at:

  • filling in forms
  • helping children with homework
  • understanding bills and bank statements
  • skills for work
  • getting online and improving digital confidence
  • understanding information to open doors to new opportunities
  • and much more!
  • We also offer a range of SQA qualifications.

The benefits of developing literacies skills and having the confidence to use them can be far reaching and life changing. In addition to developing skills, many adult learners also tell us that their confidence and health and wellbeing has improved, helping them to live fuller lives.
