We are the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA). We are an Irish charity that helps adults improve their reading, writing, maths and computer skills.
We are the largest provider of online learning at Level 2 and 3 in Ireland. Level 3 is like the Junior Certificate. We are funded by the Irish Government and European Union. Our courses are regulated by Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI).
We provide over-the-phone and online courses, tutor training and teaching resources, and we do research and campaigns to raise awareness of literacy issues and services in Ireland.
Twelve thousand people have got 42,000 national QQI qualifications with us.
I left school early but I’ve used NALA to get a Level 3 certificate and am now doing a course in Health and Safety
I used to dread filling out forms but since working with my NALA tutor I’ve got more confidence writing and spelling, it’s great.
