What's wrong with maths and financial education in the UK? Do you have any ideas which might help shape a new Worshipful Company of Actuaries research project?
The Worshipful Company of Actuaries (the Company) has a charitable objective of supporting mathematical and financial education in schools and improving school age students' understanding of financial and mathematical concepts and practice. As part of fulfilling this objective, the Company and its Charitable Trust are looking for new projects which will start when the current Royal Society Fellowship (researching how maths teaching and assessment can be structured to improve general thinking abilities) draws to a close in two years' time. The search is now on for ideas, if you have any suggestions for what you think should change, please email [email protected] The Company's Education Committee will then go on to explore the most promising ideas and consider how best to make a difference.
