Have your say on the development of a 10-Year Strategy for Adult Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Literacy
SOLAS, the Further Education and Training Authority would like to tell you about an important announcement that was made today (2nd December 2020) by the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Mr Simon Harris TD.
The Minister has announced a public consultation on a new 10-year Adult Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Literacy (ALND) Strategy, and we at SOLAS have been tasked with developing this strategy.
We hope you will be able to take a few minutes to have your say in the development of the ALND Strategy. This will help us create an environment where all adults in Ireland have the necessary literacy, numeracy and digital literacy to fully participate in society.
Full details of the various ways in which you can have your say are available on the SOLAS website by clicking this link.
A consultation paper, which includes detailed information on this online consultation process, has been developed to assist you in providing your views. The consultation paper can be found by clicking this link.
You may also wish to view a short video which provides an overview of why a 10-year Strategy for Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Literacy is needed and why we want your views. This video can be viewed by clicking this link.
We are aiming for this consultation to be as wide as possible. We would really appreciate it if you would share the above links and information provided in this email within your networks and, if applicable, with your clients and service users.
A template has also been included to facilitate focus groups if possible, to add to the richness of the submissions received. Please find a copy below to download:
