The government’s new £560 million programme to help transform the lives of hundreds of thousands of adults across the UK is coming in Spring 2022 and will be delivered through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Numeracy is the ability to understand and use maths in daily life, home, and work.  Whether that be improving household finances, helping children with homework, making more sense of the stats and facts in the media, or improving numeracy skills specific to your line of work.

People who improve their numeracy skills are more likely to be in employment, have higher wages, and better wellbeing, and will be more able to progress to higher levels of free training to secure a skilled job in our economy.

Businesses who develop their employees’ numeracy skills can boost productivity, increase profits, and improve employee retention.
