Adult Learning Scheme

Tipperary ETB Adult Learning Scheme

2014 Learner Writing Campaign


Tipperary ETB Adult Learner Collection of Work


The Tipperary ETB Adult Learning Scheme is proud to announce its first Adult Learner Writing Campaign.  Learners from throughout county Tipperary are invited to submit original short stories, poems, or autobiographical narratives to be included in a published book.

The goal of this book is to allow adult learners the opportunity to build confidence while also improving their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills.  It can also be used to promote how the Adult Learning Scheme is having a positive influence within our communities.

Adult learners and their tutors are encouraged to work together in writing, typing, editing, and submitting a written piece. We ask that completed essays be submitted through the online form on this site ( see below)

We recommend that learners select from one of the following topics:

  • My experience in adult education and literacy
  • A turning point in my life
  • My goals and ambitions
  • My favourite place
  • Why voting is important to me
  • How life in my home country differs from life here in Ireland
  • Someone or something I admire
  • A Personal story
  • Original poetry
  • An encounter that changed my life
  • My favourite day

Submissions should be no longer than 475 words. Space in the book will be limited and entries may be edited for readability. Authors can choose to remain anonymous or have a short biographical paragraph included with their submission. Please limit to one submission per adult learner. Each author who is included will be invited to the book launch and will also receive a free copy of the book.

Eligibility: Tipperary ETB welcomes essays from current or recent students enrolled in Adult Literacy or ESOL programmes located in Tipperary.

Submission Deadline: December 12, 2014.

Once the essay has been completed to the satisfaction of the student it can be submitted by using the form Submission Form
