Improve your everyday number skills
Would you like to improve your numeracy skills? Multiply is a new fully funded programme to help adults improve their number skills.
Who is it for?
If you are 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.
What are the benefits?
Good numeracy skills may unlock job opportunities and lead to higher wages or prepare you for further study. They also help in everyday life and improving numeracy could help with:
- Understanding bills
- Money management
- Helping children with their homework
- Baking and meal planning
- Building your confidence and self-esteem

“Good numeracy isn’t about being a maths whiz or having the ability to do complex mental arithmetic, it’s about having the knowledge and confidence to apply numbers-based solutions to everyday tasks such as shopping, budgeting, planning a trip or even following a recipe.”
Rachel Riley, mathematician and TV presenter
