Events

Our aim to create a supportive network for adult literacy and numeracy practitioners and a space to exchange ideas.  TCAL does this by organising events such as conferences, talks, meetings and gatherings that bring together experienced and emerging practitioners from all areas of adult education.

Here you will find information on upcoming events relevant to our industry, including meetings, conferences and professional development opportunities. You can also browse our archive of past events, which includes useful resources such as conference presentations, papers, studies and teaching aids provided by the speakers at the different events.
