Two student days in 2019

The Student Day in Limerick will take place on Saturday 13 April in the Strand Hotel in Limerick City.

Book your place for the Limerick Student Day here.



We had the NALA Student Day in Dublin on Saturday 23 March in the Ashling Hotel, Parkgate Street, Dublin 8. 101 students attended from Kildare, Wexford, Carlow, Kilkenny and Dublin. Here's some feedback on the day:

"Thought it was a lovely day, and the best day out. The new things I found out were very helpful. I met helpful people from other centres and enjoyed it so much."


NALA 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)


At the student day 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 students issues. See the report on the 2018 student days below.
