The National Adult Literacy Agency’s website provides information on everything you need to know about adult literacy in Ireland. If you are a person who would like to improve their reading, writing, numeracy or computer skills, there are lots of options available to you. You can study online by yourself, work with a tutor on the phone or learn in your local ETB adult education centre. Or you can do a combination of these three to suit your lifestyle. On the website you will get information on all these services as well as contact details for all adult literacy services in Ireland. If you are a tutor the website is packed with everything you need to know for tutoring – top tips, teaching videos, reference material as well as hundreds of free downloadable worksheets. For everyone else there is endless information on literacy – keeping you up to date with literacy news at home and abroad.

This website is free to use and can help you learn new skills. It’s great because you decide what you want to learn, where you want to learn and when you want to learn. You can even use this website to get a national FETAC qualification. You can improve your reading, writing or maths skills or learn about communications and digital media technology – there are lots of subjects to choose from. To use the site all you have to do is log in. You will be given a password so that you and we can keep track of how you are progressing. To start you need to select a level, pick a subject you’re interested in and start learning, and if you want, work towards a national qualification. Or you can get the skills you have recognised with very little extra work. So why not join thousands of people in Ireland today improving their basic skills and getting a qualification.
