The Project Assistant will work with the Programmes and Partnership teams at National Numeracy. The Programmes team runs our programmes targeted at improving people’s confidence and skills with numbers in everyday life. We work digitally through our unique online systems, accessed by thousands every month, and through employer and school-based projects. We run projects with the NHS working with health care workers. And we run projects in 20 primary schools which involve working with the parents and carers as well as the teachers. We also run large campaigns to raise awareness of our work.
The Programmes team works closely with the Partnerships team and the rest of National Numeracy.
