National Numeracy Day!

23 May, 2024

National Numeracy Day was on Wednesday 22nd May 2024. National Numeracy launched National Numeracy Day with KPMG as Founding Supporter in 2018. It’s now an award-winning campaign that has grown bigger every year.

National Numeracy’s aim is to:

“empower children and adults in the UK to get on with numbers so they can fulfil their potential at work, home and school.”

Did you miss the livestream for The Big Number Natter? You can watch the recording here.

The livestream includes:

  • National Numeracy ambassador Timi Merriman-Johnson as the host.
  • The event will focus on the power of confidence and numeracy skills when it comes to managing your money.
  • Panellists will share their expertise, covering the practical ‘basics’ for using everyday maths skills to manage finances, including budgeting, saving and debt.
  • The panel will take questions from the live audience and from people watching live online.

There are also talks and recorders on these number natters:

  • ADHD – Ishraq Li-Rahman and Roné Scheepers from National Numeracy talk about how ADHD affects their relationships with numbers.
  • SEND – Performing Arts students from Derwen College, a specialist college for young adults with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), talk about how maths fits into their vocational work and life.

The National Numeracy Day website is the go-to destination for individuals.

This online tool builds numeracy skills and confidence, with 300+ everyday maths questions and tutorials and other resources

All apprentices need to meet minimum maths requirements within their apprenticeships and we recognise how challenging this can be, you can access free support and resources for your apprentices on our Skills for Life section
