Tuesday Talks - NALA

Tuesday 1st May 11am - 12pm

The National Adult Literacy Agency is an independent charity committed to making sure people with literacy and numeracy difficulties can fully take part in society and have access to learning opportunities that meet their needs. According to the last international survey, one in six Irish adults has problems reading and writing.

Since they were set up by volunteers in 1980, they have been a leading campaigning and lobbying force on adult literacy issues. They have been involved with tutor training, developing teaching materials, distance education services, policy making, research and campaigns to raise awareness of the causes, extent and responses to adult literacy difficulties in Ireland.

They help people improve adult literacy
They increase participation in adult literacy services and make it easier for more people to learn through distance education programmes.

They advance adult literacy policy through research
Since the 1980s they have worked continuously in partnership with government departments, organisations, tutors and learners to advance adult literacy policy. 

They make approaches to teaching more effective
Good practice in adult literacy work starts with the needs and interests of individuals. It is concerned with personal development and building confidence as well as technical skills.

They remove barriers to people with literacy difficulties
They provide professional services to help organisations remove literacy-related barriers to customers accessing their services or to staff who may have difficulties reading or writing.

They represent adults with literacy difficulties
They make sure the views and experience of adults with literacy and numeracy difficulties are heard and taken into account by policy makers.
