Unlock the secret ingredient

Principal focus of the project

This project investigated ways to embed Maths vocationally to support the development of learners' wider skills for a new 21st Century workforce.

What is this about and what were the main findings?

By interviewing employers, students and teachers, it was decided to develop and test content for topics that crossed over a range of vocational areas and needed little specialist knowledge: basic accountancy, invoicing, ordering, billing, and working out hourly rates and time sheets. Early findings showed a positive response from learners.
