Work it out Maths

Raising awareness of the relevance of maths in the workplace and helping parents and carers to develop confidence in their ability to find employment by improving their skills in maths.


The maths will be based on practical activities that would be seen in the workplace. The activities will be challenging, fun and engaging with learning shared, for the most part, with a partner or as a group.
