My first attempt was below the 80 mark, yet higher than I anticipated, and I surprised myself. I think we were actually all surprised with what we knew and it helped us identify where we needed to learn more. I then decided to take the Challenge again, having worked on my less strong areas, and this time I exceeded 80 and gained the Essentials of Numeracy. I was delighted!
I learned a lot about myself and how I could “do maths”; where I had weak areas, what I was good at, and the techniques I can use to solve problems.
It was such a great way to engage the team and learn new skills, so I went on to recommend the Challenge to the rest of the management team, and their teams!
