It All Adds Up

A video to help home and community support workers improve their numeracy skills

Duration: 15 mins 15 secs

Reading rosters and filling in time sheets accurately may seem a mundane task but they are a vitally important aspect of every home and community support worker’s employment.

Understanding numbers is a crucial part of their work. This video will help aged care and disability home support workers with numeracy skills so that they can read and understand rosters more easily and fill in time sheets accurately. It also covers other aspects of their work where the ability to understand numbers is important.

This video takes a light and entertaining approach to involve the audience and help them understand how numbers work in their job. This understanding will make their work easier for everyone – support workers, clients and employers.
