A programme of free numeracy classes for adults will start at UHI Orkney later this month, and anyone looking to improve their numeracy skills is encouraged to sign up.
The Adult Numeracy Classes will boost people’s ability to use maths in their everyday life, at home and at work. Improving numeracy skills can help people become more confident and improve career prospects, or help with preparation for further study.
Anyone attending this course will be helped to achieve a Numeracy qualification at SCQF level 5 (the same as a National 5). To be eligible to attend this course, you must be aged 19 years or older and do not already hold a Maths or Numeracy qualification at SCQF Level 5 or above.
