Government video highlights English and maths importance

The government yesterday responded to an inquiry into adult English and maths skills with a short film to highlight the impact that gaining these skills can have on the economy, society and lives of people across the country.

“The stories featured in our film show just how important maths and English skills are to someone’s career and personal life,” said Skills Minister Nick Boles.

“We still have a way to go, but our reforms to English and maths will raise the aspirations of learners and improve the quality of teaching.”
