Maths ID and the numeracy curriculum

## The Adult Numeracy Core Curriculum states that it "...sets out the entitlement to learning for all adults who have difficulties with numeracy. It describes the content of what should be taught in numeracy programmes in: further and adult education; the workplace and programmes for the unemployed; prisons; community-based and family numeracy programmes."

The curriculum is set across Entry Levels 1, 2 and 3, and Levels 1 and 2 of the qualifications framework for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. For an explanation of these levels visit www.gov.uk.

The following curriculum criteria are addressed by Maths ID. Please refer to practice work pages for specific references.
