At National Numeracy we know how important it is to help staff upskill. Working in partnership with Health Education England (HEE) we are committed to supporting all healthcare staff across the NHS to gain the confidence and skills they need with numbers.
As part of this important initiative, we are developing a numeracy network for health and social care. Sign up to our newsletter to receive regular updates and information on how to get involved.
National Numeracy have been working across health and social care since 2014 to support the healthcare workforce who would like to brush up on their numeracy skills. Our unique attitudinal approach focuses on busting myths and tackling negative mindsets around numeracy in the UK. By acknowledging, understanding and addressing staffs concerns and fears we aim to take people from “I can’t do maths” to “I’ll give it a go”.
Our online learning platform allows staff to check their current numeracy level, access tailored learning resources to brush up on their skills and work towards The Essentials of Numeracy .This not only improves their confidence at work but provides a stepping stone for those who wish to progress on to Functional Skills qualifications.
