Take the First Step - National Adult Literacy Agency NALA

Take the first step is Ireland's campaign to support people who have difficulty with reading, writing, maths or technology to get the help they need.

Taking the first steps on any difficult journey requires courage and commitment – and for those who have difficulties with reading, writing, maths or technology, the stigma attached can prove daunting and discouraging. Often people who return to education say the hardest part was making the first call or taking the first step into an Adult Education Centre.


Take the first step is Ireland’s campaign to promote the free help that’s available across the country. And it’s not like being back at school. It’s relaxed and friendly and can take just a couple of hours a week. Have a look at this video.
