Developing employees’ maths skills

Our commitment to improving maths education extends beyond schools and colleges — we also engage with employers, Local Enterprise Partnerships and vocational learning providers to improve mathematical skills in the workplace.

Why is it important to improve your employees’ mathematical skills?

Mathematical skills are essential for many jobs, and they can significantly improve employees’ performance and confidence. By strengthening these skills among your workforce, you can improve the efficiency of your business, reduce your reliance on key staff, and avoid costly mistakes.

Boosting mathematical skills can also raise employees’ self-esteem and remove any perceived or real barriers to career development opportunities.

How we can help

Employers often find it difficult to recruit new people that have the mathematical skills they really want. We can help you to develop your employees to fill this gap, in-house.

We’ll work with you to explore the level of mathematical skills needed in your workplace, identify any shortfall, and help you to develop your employees’ maths skills and confidence to meet your needs.

We can design tailored training courses, from basic through to advanced, grounded with real examples from your workplace. We can also deliver these courses, or support you to deliver them yourselves.

We have an extensive bank of innovative teaching and learning resources to support taught courses and independent study, that draw from relevant, up-to-date, real-world examples. We can also design new learning materials to meet your needs.

Do you have an in-house training team, or do you use vocational training providers? If so, we can work with either to develop new courses to enhance your existing provision, such as supporting apprentices with Functional Skills Mathematics to help them successfully complete their apprenticeship
