This is a joint submission representing the shared perspectives of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT), the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) and the Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) on the importance of sustained measures to nurture and grow a quantitatively literate workforce in Australia.

The delivery of a high-quality labour force of quantitatively trained people is the underlying driving factor that will facilitate national productivity growth, job security and wages, removal of barriers to employment, and will enable Australia to develop and participate in the industries of the future. With digital expertise increasingly pivotal to future workforce capability; and Australia’s identified Critical Technologies all requiring expertise that is highly quantitative in nature, the mathematical sciences must be recognised and fostered as a vital foundational skill for Australia’s capacity, productivity and competitiveness.

AAMT, AMSI and AMT represent a broad coalition of the mathematical sciences in Australia with expertise in mathematical education across the entire workforce pipeline as well as industry engagement.
