The Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF)

Changemakers supports the development of ESDGC in accordance with the National Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF). ESDGC is about real-world issues and thinking critically about the local and global implications of everything we do. We will be exploring how to enable critical thinking about sustainable development and global citizenship issues whilst building on students’ ability to develop their numerical reasoning.

Find a teacher resource here. It can be used for teachers training for secondary teachers:

To inspire them to link up the development of young people’s numeracy skills with the development of ESDGC learning

To empower teachers with the ideas and skills to enable young people to use numeracy skills to strengthen ESDGC learning.
