Why boosting your skills in a core subject is vital

July 28, 2017

Maths, English and Science skills are very important for us to have. Not only do they help us in our daily lives but they also open up a wide range of job opportunities for us. If you’re thinking about boosting your knowledge in a core subject then here’s 3 reasons why you should:

Needed on a daily basis

It is hard to live independently without basic Maths, English and Science skills. You’ll need know about money, communication and the world, which is why studying core subjects is vital. These skills can help you to follow a recipe, work out a sale price, write properly, understand where we’ve come from and much more.

Required skills for jobs

All jobs that you apply for will require basic skills in Maths, English and Science, even in fields that are unrelated to the subject. Cashiers will need to be able to accurately count money, a retail assistant may need to work out the cost of items in a sale, an office worker will need to know how to write and communicate with the correct grammar and an engineer will need to know about different substances. People that are skilled in the core subjects will have the ability to apply for higher paying jobs in careers such as accounting, medicine, journalism and many more.

Logical and critical thinking

The discipline of the mind that you develop when studying Maths, English and Science can be carried over into everyday life. It will help you understand how you have arrived at a solution to a complex problem and enable you to think about statements that are true or false. These skills also help us to make both big and small decisions, from what toothpaste to buy to whether you should accept a job offer.
