Numeracy - a vital skill for life and work
Maths plays a big part in our lives, and understanding how numbers work can have a hugely positive impact.
The use of numbers and figures can be found everywhere, from finding a new job or getting a promotion, to managing debt and getting a better handle on family finances.
Good numeracy skills allow us to think analytically, quicken our mind, generate practicality, and, ultimately, to better understand the world around us.
Being better with numbers isn’t a special talent, it’s something we can all learn at any stage in our lives!
