The Level 3 Award in Mathematics for Numeracy Teaching (RQF) is devised for the development of your skill sets that will play a key role in teaching numeracy. This course will assist you in processing problems, interrogating mathematical conclusions, interpreting situations and using mathematical techniques for communication.
Level 3 Award in Mathematics for Numeracy Teaching (RQF) is aimed at those learners who wish to work in a supporting role within a school.
Duration and Delivery
This course is designed to be completed online at the pace that suits you the best. This fast track level 3 course can take as little as 1 week or up to 3 months. The Level 3 Mathematics qualification is delivered through our Virtual Learning Environment. Our online tutor support is there to facilitate you to achieve your success rate accordingly.
Assessment and Verification
All units within this qualification are internally assessed by our qualified assessors and externally verified by the awarding organisation. The assessment takes the form of written assignments that demonstrate your ability to apply the proper mathematical procedures and operations, and analyse the outcomes. Moreover, you will be required to provide Witness Testimony and Work Products as supporting pieces of evidence, detailed guidance for which will be provided by the tutor. Work products could include any report, presentation file, or any other documented work that you have performed in your relevant field.
Successful completion of this course enables learners to enhance their career profile. Learners wishing to progress from this qualification can undertake the following qualifications:
- Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools
- Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Schools
Unit 1: Using Mathematics: Personal and Public Life
Unit 2: Using Mathematics: Academic Subjects

Learners should meet the following requirements:
- be over 16 years of age
- have a satisfactory level of Literacy and Numeracy skills
The practical tasks of this course will be assessed in the workplace.
You will be assessed mostly through written assignments. However, some tasks require submitting relevant work as evidence that you assessed learners in a classroom or training environment.
The course is suitable for those currently working, returning to work or who wish to undertake a job and want to obtain a nationally recognized health and safety qualification.
Witness testimonies are classed as “supporting” evidence and provide additional information in the form of a statement of authentication from an occupationally competent individual who verifies all relevant details of a learner’s workplace activities and validates that the learner can conduct a skill or task. In some instances, the course requires the learner to demonstrate certain skills such as ‘Select mathematical language, communication and processing techniques to suit the audience’, which the learner cannot prove using a written evidence alone. Hence, an expert witness is tasked with providing a written record of the learner’s performance at the workplace, precisely describing the activity undertaken against targeted assessment criteria confirming if these have been followed in the work setting. Witness testimonies are compulsory in both the units, and this will be clearly stated in the relevant Assessment Brief. Moreover, it is to be noted that along with the witness testimony, pieces of evidence will be required to support it. Evidence should be relevant to the details that one has mentioned in the witness testimony.
Supporting pieces of evidence might include any presentation you prepared making good use of mathematics, any budgets you prepare for yourself, any tax calculations, or cognitive math test or pie charts (as you mentioned) that the witness testimony refers to.
It is not necessary to have a placement currently because witness testimony can also be provided by a colleague with whom you had worked in the past who could confirm that you had practised the required skills at your workplace.
No, you will be assessed by the coursework alone.
