Get involved in 'Take the first step'

17 May 2019
Tipperary ETB student Gerard Maher took part in last year's awareness videos

This year’s 'Take the first step' awareness campaign will kick off with a special conference celebrating International Literacy Day in September.

Take part in our videos
This year, NALA would like to produce videos promoting ETB services available in your area. The videos will feature contact details of the local ETB and NALA would like your help in finding students who have a good story to tell and would be willing to take part. To see some of the videos we made last year, please visit our YouTube channel.

Order free posters
As part of our awareness campaign, every year we design and print posters for adult literacy services. Each poster has a contact number for the local service. These posters are free but the closing date for orders is 17 June 2019.

If you know any students that would like to be involved in the videos, or if you would like posters, please contact Patrick Gleeson at 01 412 7916 or
