Numeracy Work Timelines

Although students should aim to complete all tasks by the date indicated,

  • Tasks highlighted in the yellow boxes and in bold are a priority, as many relate directly to the content of the next session.
  • Tasks highlighted in the silver boxes and/or in italics are for 2 year DTLLS students only.

Students should indicate the date of completion in the final column and update their work timelines regularly.

To monitor your progress, these timelines will be looked over by your course tutor every month.
