National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
The use, learning and transfer of workplace numeracy skills, as well as current understandings of the term numeracy, are examined in this study. It also highlights the importance of numeracy as an essential workplace skill. The report challenges the training system and training organisations to provide numeracy training which makes links directly to workplace contexts as well as to mathematical concepts. (Contains 1 footnote and 2 tables.) [This work has been produced with funding provided through the Australian Department of Education, Science and Training. For Support Document, see ED499729.]
