National Numeracy is calling on the nation to check their maths skills this September. They have renamed the month ‘Checktember’ and will be encouraging everyone to go online and check that they have the number skills needed for everyday life and work.
Research released earlier in the year revealed a third of us wish we were better at maths and numeracy. This is where Checktember comes in. Throughout the month people are being encouraged to sign up to the National Numeracy Challenge, a service which helps people to check their level and get help to improve. A score of 80 or more is equivalent to a GCSE pass or above. But regardless of score, any individual can access learning resources providing help to work on any weak areas.
