Numeracy

Numeracy is everywhere. We use it in every aspect of our lives.

When we go to the supermarket, when we cook, when we go on holiday, when we rent a property or apply for a mortgage or loan, when we use transport, or increasingly just to make sense of the world and news, having strong numerical skills is essential.

Having strong Numeracy skills means you are more likely to be employed, earn more money, be healthier and have a higher quality of life. Poor Numeracy can also impact upon people’s mental health, improving these skills can have direct correlation with increased confidence and personal growth. 

Good numeracy is the best protection against unemployment, low wages and poor health.”
Andreas Schleicher
