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. "Thinking Beyond Numbers: Learning Numeracy for the Future Workplace" challenges the training system and training organisations to provide numeracy training which makes links directly to workplace contexts as well as to mathematical concepts. In support of the full document, this report includes a literature review, list of consultation and supports groups, interview schedules, case studies, and interview analysis notes. (Contains 2 footnotes and 2 tables.) [This Support Document was written with Sharon Donohue and Peggy Wymond.
