The ‘Words Talk – Numbers Count’ strategy is our strategy to improve literacy and numeracy in Wales.
This is the latest release
It is the second Welsh basic skills strategy and is delivered by ‘Basic Skills Cymru’.
As part of our work within schools, we have been working with ‘Cynnal’ (an advisory service to Gwynedd and Anglesey authorities) to produce a Financial Literacy resource that can be used within the PSE framework. This resource is available as a CD ROM and targets learners with basic skills below level 1, at Key Stage 4.
We believe the resource offers an opportunity to develop the literacy and numeracy skills, and financial skills of individuals who will shortly be leaving mainstream education and entering work or further education.
