National Numeracy Day 2020 takes place on 13 May with a day of online events to help with numeracy while the nation is at home. Helping children with maths, improving own self-confidence and getting to grips with finances… will all be covered.

You can also promote the National Numeracy Challenge to colleagues during Learning at Work Week On Air, Online.

The Challenge is a free website to help everyone check and improve their numeracy - the maths we use daily life and at work, like managing money, working out measurements or understanding percentages, rather than algebra or trigonometry.

In March 2020 the Challenge was updated with a whole new look, a new quick check so that it only takes around ten minutes to practise or check skills, videos, and increased flexibility, so colleagues can choose what they want to do.
