Foreword

In January 2009, the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) commissioned
research on integrating literacy support and development into further
education vocational courses at Level 5. We are very grateful to Michael
King, Principal of Liberties College, and to the College\u201fs staff and students for
their invaluable cooperation in this research. We would also like to thank
Jacinta Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of City of Dublin VEC, for her
cooperation.

The learning from this project will inform NALA\u201fs policy development and the
various strands of our work to help increase the range of \u201eliteracy-friendly\u201f

learning opportunities available to adults. NALA is pleased to publish the
final research report from the project, to make the learning more widely
available to policymakers, providers and practitioners in further education and
training.

We would like to thank Dr Liz McSkeane for her initial exploratory research on
our behalf, which helped lay the basis for this project.

Finally, we are grateful to Maggie Feeley and Ann Hegarty for their
professionalism and enthusiasm in carrying out this research, and the
Liberties College members of the Project Planning and Review Group for their
support to the researchers.
