What is the National Numeracy Challenge?
The national Numeracy Challenge is:
· A UK wide drive designed to improve adults' confidence and competence with numeracy.
· A call to action to everyone in workplaces (employers and unions), adult education, community organisations, and individuals to - with our support -improve their numeracy using methods that suit them.
· Aimed specifically at the 78% of UK adults with an understanding of numeracy below the equivalent of Level 2 (GCSE grades A*-C).
The Challenge also aims to transform negative attitudes towards maths and numeracy and to create a positive “can do” attitude, a key element for improving numeracy skills.
To find out more about the challenge please contact Shirley Handsley on 07825 525 610 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
