NALA is recruiting a Training Co-ordinator

1 Oct 2018

The National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) works closely with a range of organisations to help them implement strategies that will improve the literacy, numeracy and digital skills of adults. Our work in this area involves integrating literacy and numeracy development into vocational courses and training. This helps to ensure that people who want to take up education and training programmes are not excluded or do not drop out because of the literacy demands of a course. Workshops, seminars, webinars and videos are delivered to practitioners in further education and training.

NALA is currently recruiting a Training Co-ordinator who will play an important role in supporting NALA in its strategic objective to provide continuous professional development for tutors and other professionals involved in supporting literacy and lifelong learning in line with the FET Professional Development Strategy 2017-2019.

We are looking for a motivated, energetic and innovative team player to join our organisation to help us achieve our vision.

You will need:

  • knowledge and understanding of the key issues affecting literacy and numeracy in the context of adult education and vocational education and training;
  • excellent ICT and administration skills; and
  • excellent interpersonal, communication and teamwork skills.
