National Numeracy Challenge

National Numeracy Challenge

What is the National Numeracy Challenge?

The National Numeracy challenge is a ground-breaking initiative aimed at reducing the number of adults in the UK with low levels of numeracy over the next 5 years. 

By signing up to the challenge you will have instant access to an interactive online platform where you will carry out an initial assessment. Following this you will be provided with a personalised training package which will target the key areas in which you can develop your skills.

Each Merton Library has a Champion who can provide ongoing advice and support in developing your numeracy skills.    

What will I gain from taking part in the Challenge?

In developing your numeracy skills you will not only create a great sense of self-achievement but also gain skills that could help you to become more confident in shopping, money management and helping your children with their homework.

How do I sign up?

You can sign up online or visit your local Merton Library.
