The National Accelerated Literacy Program (NALP) aims to remove the educational divide faced by students who can't read.
The program uses Accelerated Literacy methodology (AL) to tackle low literacy levels in remote communities around Australia, particularly Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory. In addition, NALP is delivered in schools in northern Western Australia, South Australia and one school in Queensland.
The program is jointly funded by the Australian Government's Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the Northern Territory Government, through the Department of Employment, Education and Training (NTDEET).
Shalom Christian College is the only school in Queensland who has integrated the NALP framework into their curriculum.
