PARTNER CASE STUDY

We work with KPMG UK to deliver "Numeracy in the News", an exciting series of events where schoolchildren across the UK join discussions about how numbers and statistics are used in news stories. KPMG volunteers also take part in the Topical Talk Festival, supporting children from all over the world to develop their critical-thinking and communication skills.

“We’re proud to partner with The Economist Educational Foundation to support young people’s literacy and numeracy skills through discussions about the news. Their resources are always delivered to an exceptional standard and provide exciting and engaging ways for young people to learn about what’s happening in the world.”

PARTNER CASE STUDY

We work with The PA Foundation to give young people the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) knowledge and skills they need for the modern world. Our series of focused resources allow students to learn about the big STEM news stories shaping their lives. Our in-person events feature world-renowned experts and PA volunteers to allow children to learn from people working in the industry.

We are so proud to be working with The Economist Educational Foundation and have seen our partnership go from strength to strength. Through their high quality and engaging resources, PA people can connect with students worldwide to have meaningful discussions about the news. We have a particular focus on STEM topics, and seeing first-hand the impact these have on the young people is truly inspiring.”

"The [Numeracy in the News] resources were relevant to lots of areas of learning. The stimulating materials increased students’ knowledge and understanding of the world as well as their skills for communication and participation in the world around them in a meaningful and enjoyable way. They really felt that they could all have success."
