No, Multiply is much more than that!
Multiply is a new government-funded programme to help adults improve their numeracy skills.
Numeracy is the about feeling confident in using maths in daily life, home, and work. Whether that be improving household finances, helping children with homework, making more sense of the statistics and facts in the media, or improving numeracy skills specific to work.
Nationally there will be a range of courses available to adults who are looking to enter employment, progress at work or get support with everyday financial tasks.
If you are aged 19 and over and don’t have maths GCSE at grade C (or equivalent) or don't feel confident with maths, you can access FREE numeracy courses through Multiply to build your confidence with numbers or to gain a qualification.
Good numeracy skills may unlock job opportunities and lead to higher wages or prepare you for further study. They can also help in everyday life, such as helping children with homework and budgeting money.
