Integrating literacy learning and teaching materials

NALA has published integrating literacy resource packs, guidelines and videos to support tutors and learners in integrated delivery of vocational programmes:

  • Integrating Literacy: Guidelines for further education and training centres
  • Skillwords: a resource pack of materials designed by participants on the MU Certificate Course in Integrating Literacy. The materials focus on helping learners understand, read and write the key words associated with selected topics in their vocational area.
  • Missling the Tobar: a resource pack containing 4 reading books and an accompanying workbook. The books were written by members of the Travelling Community who are participants on vocational education and training programmes. The accompanying workbook contains learner materials and suggestions for integrated teaching and learning activities based on each of the books.
  • Move with Literacy: a set of materials and suggested teaching and learning activities based on a range of sports.
