All apprentices need to meet minimum maths requirements within their apprenticeships and we recognise how challenging this can be. Between the 1st and 5th of November, the charity National Numeracy is encouraging the nation to take part in ‘Number Confidence Week’. For this year, the campaign is focused on three key themes:
- How number confidence is key to managing your money
- Why boosting numeracy skills can help take the fear out of the maths you need for work
- How to develop positive attitudes around numeracy to better support children with their maths homework
It is of great importance that we foster a supportive and open conversation about numeracy and shine a spotlight on how to build number confidence, because the fears and anxieties can be overcome.
How can people get involved?
- The campaign hub has lots of great free resources to help the whole family. You can find out more here.
- A great way to boost your own number confidence is to try the National Numeracy Challenge, a free online tool that helps you develop confidence and skills, in just 10 minutes a day, at your own pace.
- Help grow the reach of the campaign: Follow National Numeracy and #NumberConfidenceWeek on social media, and share the inspiring content with your networks. Together we can help the nation bounce back with confidence!
