Two student days in 2018

NALA will have two student days in 2018:

Galway - Saturday 17 February in the Radisson Blue Hotel in Galway city (now called The Galmont Hotel). This is beside the bus and rail station.
Dublin – Saturday 3 March in the Ashling Hotel, Parkgate Street, Dublin 8. This is near Heuston Station and Red line Luas stop.

The student days are for you if you are:

• Improving your literacy and numeracy in an adult education centre
• Improving your literacy or numeracy using NALA's Distance Learning Service - doing tuition over the phone or using the website
• Improving your English in an adult education centre (doing English for Speakers of Other Languages - ESOL)

This year we have specific workshops for distance learners and ESOL students.

You will meet other students from different parts of the country, hear interesting speakers and go to some workshops. See the programme and book online on this website under "Upcoming events" NALA Student Days on the home page.

The student days are free and NALA provides free tea and coffee and lunch too!

We ask people coming to the days to join NALA as members if they are not already members. This is to show their interest in literacy and numeracy issues and that they support NALA's work.

The student days are important to NALA because they are one of the ways we hear directly from students. Other ways are through our Student Subcommittee and through the NALA Student Development Fund. After the student days we write a report to capture not only what happened on the day but also to capture students issues. See the report on the 2017 student days below. The report has a short summary that gives an overview.
