Founded in 1969, AONTAS' aim is to do research on and promote adult education in Irland. AONTAS is affiliated to the European Association for the Education of Adults. Since its beginnings, a focus of AONTAS work is on adult literacy. Based on a woking group on this topic, AONTAS decided to found the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) in 1976. Since the 1980s, women education has become another focus. Starting in 1998, AONTAS published regular strategic plans that were subsequently put into action. One of AONTAS' aims here is also to have an impact on education policy. The website offers a lot of information on projects, initiatives, laws and other things. You will also find a lot of fulltext documents like studies, reports and more. AONTAS also publishes the Adult Learner Journal, which is free of charge and which also contains articles on adult education in other countries.
