Current NALA research

Research is a key element of NALA’s work and we are committed to the use of research in building on our previous work and promoting the use of evidence based practice.

Our current strategic plan 2017 – 2019 has identified that we will use research to show why literacy matters to Irish society. To support this objective NALA will carry out research in a number of areas. These are:

  • Research on numeracy practice;
  • Research on literacy practice;
  • Research on financial numeracy;
  • Research on CPD needs of adult numeracy tutors; and
  • Research on blended learning with ESOL learners

You can view and download all of NALA’s research reports in Resources section of our website.
