Who is this Student Day for?

The NALA Student Day is for you if you are an adult who is: 

* Improving your literacy, numeracy or digital skills in an adult literacy centre, or as part of another programme (could be for example a Youthreach programme, a National Learning Network or a Community Training Centre). 

* Learning over the phone with a NALA tutor or using the Learn with NALA website.

* Improving your English in an adult education centre, where English is not your first language. 

 

What happens at NALA Student Days?

You meet other students, hear student speakers and learn something new at a workshop. No one is put under pressure. You can get up and walk around, and take a break if you need to. 

NALA student days are for students only. The only exception to this is when NALA invites a tutor to facilitate a workshop or invites a non- student to speak on the day.
