Multiply - courses to help adults make things add up!
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. Online tutorials and content are also available, so you'll be able to learn at a pace that suits you.
Around 17 million adults in England (half of the working-age population) have the numeracy level of a child leaving primary school.
Evidence shows that those who improve their numeracy skills are more likely to be in employment, have higher wages, and better wellbeing. Poor numeracy skills can hold people back from having the confidence to get on in life and into work.
As part of the government's Multiply scheme, we're set to receive some extra money over the next 3 years. This is to offer adults who need to improve their numeracy skills through free, flexible courses that fit around their lives. Courses are expected to be available from this autumn - in person or online, at work or at home, part-time or on an intensive basis - whatever best suits your personal circumstances.
If you're interested in what support is available to get you the numeracy skills to help you to make your money go further, reduce waste, be more energy efficient, improve your job opportunities, or help your children to do better at school, then register your interest by completing our form and we'll keep you up to date.
