Want to brush up on your number skills?

Think you’re not a numbers person? Many of us say we’re not number people, but numbers play a big part in all our lives, and understanding how they work can have a hugely positive impact. From finding a new job or getting a promotion, to managing debt and getting a better handle on family finances, everyone can benefit by finding a way to make numbers work for them.

This Summer, UNISON are working with National Numeracy, an independent charity, to give all our members working within Schools and Education the chance to brush up their number skills.

By accessing the National Numeracy Challenge, a free online learning tool, you’ll be able to work towards the Essentials of Numeracy – the maths skills you actually need in work and everyday life. It allows you to find out your level and points you towards resources personalised to you to help you improve. You can access the Challenge using this link to find out your current numeracy level and improve based on your strengths and weaknesses.

Being better with numbers isn’t a special talent, it’s something we can all learn.
