Launching this year across the UK, Multiply is a new government-funded programme to help adults improve their numeracy skills.

If you’re aged 19 and over and don’t have maths GCSE at grade C (or equivalent), you can access free numeracy courses through Multiply to build your confidence with numbers and gain a qualification.

Good numeracy skills may unlock job opportunities and lead to higher wages or prepare you for further study. They also help in everyday life, such as helping children with homework and budgeting money.

There will be courses for beginners to more advanced courses such as GCSE Maths, Functional Skills Qualifications, or equivalent. 

If you are interested in finding out more information about Multiply courses, please complete our online enquiry form and we will be in touch with you.

In the meantime, you can explore ways to improve your skills, or take our short quiz which can help you understand where you might want to brush up on your numbers.
