Literacy link teacher



Defined as "the capacity to read, understand and critically appreciate various forms of communication including spoken language, printed text, broadcast media, and digital media” (DES, 2011 p.8),  Literacy is one of the most fundamental and crucial facets of education and life-long learning. The literacy link teacher is a facilitator of change for improvement, through the promotion and development of literacy at whole school level.
