ABE Classes

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) service in Fife provides free tuition for adults who want to improve their basic skills in reading, writing, spelling, numbers or basic IT/computer skills. They run small groups and short courses at venues all over Fife. Everyone has their own learning plan and works at their own level and pace in a friendly and informal setting.
