Learning with national numeracy

However maths makes you feel, you're not alone. 

The National Numeracy Challenge is a free online tool designed to support you in working towards having the Essentials of Numeracy - the maths skills you actually need in work and everyday life. It allows you to find out your level and points you towards resources to help you improve.

* To improve your score, you'll first need to take the Check-Up and find out your current level (you can do this by clicking GET STARTED). You’ll then receive learning resources tailored to your level, these are there to help boost your skills. When you feel ready you can take the Check-Up again to see how much you’ve improved. Two winners will be selected at random from all those that have improved their score on the National Numeracy Challenge by the 28th of November, that means every person who has improved their score since their first attempt stands a chance of winning a prize.

** Love2Shop vouchers can be spent in over 20,000 shops nationwide.
