About the National Numeracy Challenge programme

Anyone can check if they have the Essentials of Numeracy using the free online assessment tool; the National Numeracy Challenge. It also directs people to a range of resources to help them improve their numeracy skills.

Anyone can take the Challenge at any time. Three quarters of people who have assessed their skills, used some learning resources and then re-assessed, have improved their numeracy skills. If you achieve a score of 80 then you have the ‘Essentials of Numeracy’ and can claim a digital badge and certificate.

National Numeracy Day is run by the UK charity National Numeracy. The first National Numeracy Day is on 16 May 2018 and has been created with Founding Supporter KPMG, with additional support from an impressive and growing list of organisations. Health Education England is a lead supporter for the initiative.
