The acquisition of maths skills helps the students to improve a range of practical independent living and work skills. Maths knowledge is developed in individual timetable sessions where it is embedded in practical skills and/or in discrete sessions.

Money management is a good example of how students are supported to increase their understanding of the value of coins and notes, where they learn to exchange money, pay for specific items, receive change and budget for personal items or group events.

Maths skills are also used to teach telling the time, time management skills, transport timetables and using a range of household equipment.

Quote Icon I have undertaken work experience in shops, I have gained a lot of independence, especially in caring for myself. I can travel on my own and I have learned how to communicate with people, I am more confident.
