"I've had a successful career and I'm currently a senior manager in the Civil Service. I have to regularly make complex decisions, put together budgets, interpret data and work out performance targets. However, I've struggled with numeracy all my life.
It's been my Achilles heel, so I've just put it to one side and focused on other strengths. However, I felt the time was right to brush up on my number skills. I stumbled across the Challenge website whilst browsing through a brochure for adult learning courses.
It's no exaggeration when I say that it has been, potentially, life-changing. I am highly motivated to learn and completely appreciate the importance and value of numeracy."
