Are you an adult who would you like to get back to education? It can be hard to know where to start. But you've come to the right place!  

One Step Up is a free information service aimed at helping people get back to education, or learn something new, at any age and with any level of qualifications.  

One Step Up is run by AONTAS, Ireland’s National Adult Learning Organisation. We raise awareness of the benefits of adult learning and fight for the rights of all adults to quality education.
