Our vision
Our vision is an Ireland where adult literacy is a valued right, where everyone can develop their literacy, numeracy and digital skills, and where individuals can take part fully in society.

Our strategic plan
We have three objectives, each with related actions that will be central to improving outcomes for adults with literacy and numeracy difficulties in Ireland from 2017-2019.

Our strategic objectives for the next three years are:

  • build awareness of the importance of literacy for a more inclusive Ireland;
  • lead innovation in the teaching and learning of adult literacy, numeracy and basic digital skills; and
  • seek further investment in raising adult literacy and numeracy levels in Ireland.
