KLEAR is a community-based Adult Education Centre situated in the heart of Kilbarrack. We offer a broad range of courses in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. During the past 32 years we have catered for the educational needs of over 10,000 adults.
KLEAR also runs a childcare service for students attending courses. We have managed, by various means, to offer childcare from our very early days and our slogan has been ‘no crèche, no classes’.
At last count, we had approximately 1,100 part-time students, 130 pre-school children, 51 part-tutors, 48 voluntary tutors and other non-teaching staff (part-time and full-time) numbering about thirty.
Supported financially by CDVEC, ESF, POBAL, FAS and NDP, KLEAR is run and organised by a voluntary management group consisting of tutors, students, and local residents. Course content and teaching methodologies have been developed by this group.
