National Adult Literacy Agency: eLearning Engagement Officer

National Adult Literacy Agency


The National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) is a registered charity. We are committed to ensuring that adults with unmet literacy, numeracy and digital literacy needs can fully take part in society. According to the last international adult literacy survey, one in six people has an unmet literacy need in Ireland. One in four people has an unmet numeracy need.

Unmet adult literacy and numeracy and digital literacy needs have devastating consequences for individuals, communities and the economy. People at the lowest literacy and numeracy levels earn less income, have poorer health and are more likely to be unemployed.

Since we were set up by volunteers in 1980, we have been a leading campaigning and lobbying force on adult literacy issues. We have been involved in national policy, tutor training and developing teaching resources, as well as doing research and campaigns to support people with literacy and numeracy difficulties.
