About the course

Multiply is a new government-funded programme to help adults improve their numeracy skills. You will be able to access free numeracy support through Multiply to build your confidence with numbers and improve your numeracy skills.

Developing numeracy skills may unlock job opportunities and lead to higher wages or prepare you for further study. They also help people improve their ability to understand and use maths in daily life, home, and work. Whether that be improving household finances, helping children with homework, making more sense of the facts in the media, or improving numeracy skills specific to a line of work.

This course is especially for people over the age of 19 who might be working towards a maths GCSE or Functional Skills Qualification, need specific numeracy skills for their work or progression, or just want to brush up on the skills to help them get on in life and work.
