It Is Good To Count Says M.P.


Simon Kirby, Member of Parliament for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven, has joined forces with the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE)¹ to become a ‘Parliamentary Maths Champion’.

NIACE aims to raise math literacy among adults throughout the UK following the government’s 2011 Skills for Life Survey². At the heart of NIACE’s campaign is their Five Math Messages;

  1. Everyone uses maths everyday – and everyone can get better at it.
  2. Better maths means you can make your money go further.
  3. Improving your maths is infectious: children, grandchildren and friends will learn from you.
  4. The more able and confident you are with Maths, the stronger your job prospects.
  5. Learning maths as an adult is different to how you learnt it at school.

Simon commented that “I am happy to endorse NIACE and welcome its efforts to improve the numeracy levels of people both within the constituency and nationally.

By providing people with skills and knowledge they are being equipped for the work place and set a precedent for the next generation. Maths skills are crucial to placing Britain ahead in the global race and providing fuel for economic growth.”
