Although numeracy has always been an essential element in basic skills training programs, it is often not in the forefront for basic skills policies and practice. The current collection of open educational resources (OERs) and the respective online course (MOOC) aim to present a starting point for policy-makers, staff of educational institutions and other partners having a stake in implementing the European Council’s recommendation on Upskilling Pathways.
