We are delighted to invite you to our webinar where we and our partners in further education and training, social protection and community development will discuss what the new 10-year strategy for adult literacy, numeracy, and digital skills in the Programme for Government might look like.

At this event we will also launch three new documents that will support our discussions:

Literacy Now: report examining key policy and practices in adult literacy, numeracy and digital skills – view here

Literacy for Life: Whole-of-Government approach for investing in adult literacy, numeracy and digital skills – written by TASC (an independent think-tank whose core focus is addressing inequality and sustaining democracy) – view here

Literacy Impact: outcomes framework for measuring the impact of improved literacy, numeracy and digital skills

Speakers include Dr Inez Bailey, NALA CEO and Dr Shana Cohen, TASC Director.

 

This event is now over. You can watch a recording of the event here:

 

 

About the event

Last year we commissioned TASC to develop a framework for supporting literacy, numeracy and digital skills. This framework, Literacy for Life, suggests a whole-of-government approach for investing in adult literacy, numeracy and digital skills for an equal and resilient Ireland.

With literacy, numeracy and digital skills now firmly in the Programme for Government, this framework forms a good starting point for us to discuss how we can work together to ensure everyone has the necessary skills for today and the future. Because now more than ever, in a post COVID-19 world we need to support people with unmet literacy, numeracy and digital skills needs at home, in work and in the community.
