Why does NALA provide a Student Development Fund?

NALA provide a Student Development Fund to:

1. support student development outside the classroom;

2. contribute to the SOLAS Further Education and Training (FET) Strategy by helping to identify barriers to participation in adult education and strategies to address these barriers; and

3. gather the views of adult literacy and numeracy students so that it informs both NALA’s and the adult education sector’s work. This is a key part of NALA’s Strategic Plan 2017 -2019.

I have a question, who should I contact?
