The course is centred on the National Numeracy Challenge, which uses everyday maths skills in real life situations. It is:
- Adaptive to the learner’s level
- Equipped with both learning resources and attitudinal support
- Accessible on mobile phones and tablets as well as PCs
- Can be accessed at any time and as many times as you want
The workshop doesn’t contain any maths teaching or tests, it’s about learning to support others develop the mindset they need to face everyday maths .
Attitudes are the primary barrier to improving numeracy – with value, belief and effort anyone can improve. The workshop builds understanding of the barriers to learning which people experience and develops confidence in supporting their team, colleagues or workmates to develop confidence.
