The training was designed to help understand the barriers people face when accessing maths learning, how children and parents can be supported to develop positive attitudes, and how to help promote positive parental engagement.
Equipping the CLD practitioners and STEM Ambassadors with this training, the project’s main aim was to improve confidence in these groups, and give champions the knowledge and understanding to support families with numeracy upskilling in community-based learning.
Champions will go on to use their training to support people in the community to feel good about maths, so they feel more able to engage with numeracy learning.
With four online training programmes, Phase 2 of the project had funded places available for up to 30 individual CLD practitioners and STEM Ambassadors in the following locations:
- Northern Alliance (programme started 1st September 2022)
- South East Collaborative (programme started 20th October 2022)
- Tayside Collaborative (programme started 30th November 2022)
- All regions in Scotland (programme started 1st December 2022)
