The Academy's Numeracy Suite programs are grounded in developing numeracy leadership and teaching capabilities. They focus on building excellence in classroom practice, instructional leadership and embedding a whole-school focus on numeracy.

Lifting the numeracy levels of Victorian students is a key Education State goal. Children and young people need numeracy skills to flourish in education, employment and the community.

The Numeracy Suite is aligned to the Department of Education's (department) Literacy and Numeracy Strategy. This strategy brings together new and existing resources to support system-wide excellence and lift numeracy outcomes for all Victorian students.

Our numeracy programs provide educators with practical, high-quality, evidence-based professional learning. This is an integral component of the Department's strategy.
