Essential Skills Programme

Essential Skills qualifications are available to anyone over the age of 16 in Northern Ireland who wants to improve their literacy, numeracy or ICT skills, either to help secure a job or for ongoing personal development.

An Essential Skills qualification can help improve your reading, writing, maths or computer proficiency to make you more employable across a whole range of different jobs.

Greenway Women’s Centre offers OCR Basic Skills Awards in Literacy, Numeracy and ICT at Basic, Level 1 and Level 2 and offers progression routes to participants within the Centre and also with other learning providers.

Greenway’s Essential Skills operate on two levels; group sessions in the morning and afternoon when participants complete the OCR qualification and one-to-one sessions for individuals who require additional support.

Greenway’s objectives are to target adult learners who have Essential Skills needs and to provide training that will enhance personal development as well as career and educational progression.
