Who are we?

The Literacy Development Centre (LDC) at WIT provides third level qualifications in adult literacy and adult and further education for managers/tutors working in adult literacy, and for FE practitioners working in literacy support, at a number of centres around Ireland. The LDC incorporates the NALA/WIT accreditation project and is part-funded by SOLAS. 

The current portfolio of programmes spans undergraduate programmes from Higher Certificate to Honours Degree level in teaching and learning in further and higher education and adult education, further education, community development and adult literacy. 

All of our programmes were designed for practitioners working across the education spectrum (primary, post-primary, further, adult and higher - education) to address the CPD needs of these sectors and to reflect the changes taking place in education practice and policy. Our programmes are flexible, responsive and connect teaching with practice. We have been working with adult learners for over 30 years and have a long history of supporting adult education.
