The skills we teach are relevant to many other subjects as well as being vital to people in their everyday lives. Today maths is needed in many jobs and professions including business, science, and engineering. The trades also have a need for mathematical skills and knowledge, particularly in construction.

The study of Mathematics develops logical reasoning, analysis, problem-solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways, as well as offering opportunities for creativity. Mathematics is an ever expanding body of knowledge, skills, concepts and techniques essential in the efficient handling of information and the solution of problems.
