Numeracy - Network's got your number

5th March 2010 at 00:00

The National Numeracy Network held its first meeting last week.

The network, which consists of HMIE, representatives from councils, the Scottish Qualifications Authority, parents, higher education, further education and employers, has been set up by Learning and Teaching Scotland to share good ideas and set priorities for numeracy and maths. It will include four working groups, one of which will focus on financial education.

Speaking at the launch in Edinburgh last week, the Minister for Skills and Lifelong Learning, Keith Brown, said: "At this time of change in assessment, qualifications and curriculum, the network will play a critical role in ensuring that numeracy is embedded right across the school curriculum and beyond school."
