Community Learning and Development for Maths Week Scotland
Posted by Education Scotland
Across Scotland, Community Learning and Development (CLD) works to empower people of all ages to work individually or collectively to make positive changes in their lives and communities through learning, personal development and active citizenship. Community Learning and Development uses a range of formal and informal methods of learning and social development with individuals and groups in their communities. Programmes and activities are developed with communities and participants.
CLD activities planned for Maths Week Scotland include:
- Parental engagement workshops and adult learning events, including family learning
- Youth work embedding maths as fun activities
- Community engagement
- Themed events promoting disadvantaged or under-represented groups, such as encouraging girls into maths
So what CLD events are happening near you this Maths Week Scotland?

Women in Maths
To celebrate women in Maths Day (12 May) we interviewed six women with maths at the core of their role and will be releasing the videos throughout May.
Our next two videos are women who work with large numbers which affect all of our lives. Kate Forbes is the Cabinet Secretary for Finance for Scotland and Esther Roughsedge is a Statistician at National Records of Scotland.
