Essential Skills - Numeracy

Working with Numbers

Would you like to brush up on your number skills?

Will you do anything to avoid working with numbers if you possibly can?

Lots of us have a fear of "maths", and yet we use number skills every day. We use money, check bus or train timetables, pay our bills and go shopping. We use numbers when we're doing DIY or home decorating, working out how to double up a recipe or measure up for some curtains. We often refer to these practical uses of number skills as numeracy. It means having the skills to do what we want to do.

A lot of people don't feel confident with using numbers and things like metric weights and measurements can be a mystery.  Improving your number skills can help you with your household budgeting, with spotting what's the real bargain in the supermarket and with getting jobs done around the home and garden. Is a fear of numbers stopping you from doing something you'd like to do, like applying for a course or a job? Essential Skills tutors can help!
