Training and workshops

National Numeracy offers a unique suite of training courses and workshops for organisations, workplaces and schools, improving numeracy by using our confidence-focused approach. Together we can help adults and children overcome low number confidence and fulfil their potential.

Aimed at supporting adults with low confidence in their numbers skills, these sessions do not teach maths skills but instead aim to build confidence, change mindsets and introduce resources to support skills learning.

Negative thoughts, feelings and anxieties around maths often hold people back from even engaging with numeracy upskilling. This means that our confidence-based approach can provide the essential step needed to get adults started with improving their maths.

For more information about any of the training and workshops below, or if you would like to book sessions for your organisation, please get in touch. You can contact us at [email protected]

Becoming a Numeracy Champion: CPD Accredited Training

The Becoming a Numeracy Champion programme is designed to help organisations support their staff, students, customers or service-users with numeracy, using an attitudes-based approach.

Numeracy Champions do not teach maths. Anyone interested in supporting others to feel more confident with numbers can be a Numeracy Champion! 

If you are a workplace, organisation or community in London, take a look at our Every Londoner Counts programme.

Every Londoner Counts

National Numeracy and The Lord Mayor’s Appeal are running an initiative called Every Londoner Counts to improve employability and financial inclusion in the city.

We are training a network of 'numeracy champions'. If you are a workplace, organisation or community in London, get in touch, this is for you! It is CPD-accredited and fully-funded, so there is no cost to you.

  • Numeracy champions do not teach maths,  they act as mentors to 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.
