We’re all

numbers people.

Many of us say we’re not numbers people. But numbers play a big part in all our lives. National Numeracy Day is all about recognising this and helping people sharpen their skills and build their confidence. Being better with numbers isn’t a special talent, it’s something we can all learn.

What can we do about it?

We are overwhelmed by the support of the first ever National Numeracy Day. Please continue to help us improve the nation’s numeracy by encouraging people to use our online numeracy tool. Come back and support us again next year!
 

Over 140,000 have registered with our online learning tool so far and 3/4 of people who have assessed their skills, used some learning resources and reassessed have improved.
