Welcome to our Numeracy Champion Training

Many people feel anxious about maths and hold such negative thoughts, beliefs, and feelings around the subject that this often holds them back from engaging with learning.

At National Numeracy we understand that having good numeracy skills is key to getting on in both work and life. It can help people to:

  • get a new job or progress in their careers. 
  • support their children to feel more confident with numbers. 
  • feel more confident in managing their money. 

That is why we need Numeracy Champions – to help support adults at work, at home or in the community to build confidence with numbers. Champions do not teach maths but act as mentors who can support others. They help adults to develop positive attitudes towards numeracy, overcome their barriers and start their learning journey– they offer support and encouragement to others.

Who we are

We are National Numeracy, a charity set up in 2012 to raise the levels of numeracy in the UK among both adults and children. Our own research and government figures show that around half of adults in the UK have the numeracy expected of primary school children, we want to change this. Our Numeracy Champions have helped thousands of adults. Join them and see the difference you can make.
