TCAL is the peak body for adult literacy and numeracy practitioners. We make literacy and numeracy resources available for teaching and learning, and provide opportunities and spaces for practitioners to support each other and exchange ideas.
TCAL is a not for profit association run entirely by volunteers. We rely on membership fees and grants to fund our activities.
