Improving numeracy remains a key challenge for education providers. Earlier this year, NIACE (The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education) undertook research into innovative numeracy provision and brought 40 organisations together to discuss and share practice and the subsequent report, Innovative Practice in Numeracy Learning, was published in March 2011. This work was carried out on behalf of the Skills Funding Agency and included some of its top numeracy providers.
NIACE is now seeking to gather more data on innovative delivery models for numeracy practice in order to produce a free downloadable resource to improve the quality of numeracy learning. If you are achieving good results in numeracy, they want to hear from you about the success factors that underpin your provision.
They will be holding a free seminar in early 2012 to bring together providers to share your experiences of numeracy teaching and learning.
Please note that the closing date for responses is 31 October 2011.
