The National Adult Literacy Agency is an independent charity committed to being the voice of adult literacy in Ireland, and with our partners, influence policy and practice to support people in developing their literacy (mission).
We have three objectives.
Policy – work to ensure that national adult literacy policy priorities are implemented.
Practice – develop better literacy and numeracy learning opportunities through:
An integrated learning approach, and
Other effective methods such as distance learning and blended learning.
Access – Make it easier for people with literacy difficulties to:
Take up literacy and numeracy learning opportunities, and
Use other services aimed at the public.
Since 1997, we have been a dedicated force behind the:
30-fold increase in adult literacy funding, and
10-fold increase in the number of adults involved in VEC adult literacy services.
We have brought many innovations to the field of adult literacy and developed the organisation as an expert resource on adult literacy.
