The Multiply Programme - Get on with numbers

multiply

Feeling confident with numbers helps in every aspect of life from measuring building materials or mixing hair dye, checking invoices, to helping the children with their homework or even setting up in business.

But if you feel nauseous when thinking about numbers, you’re not alone! The good news is that there’s no such thing as someone who ‘can do maths’ and someone who can’t. It’s learning in the right way for you that will help you get a job, get on in your career, save and budget better and help the kids – and you don’t need to become a maths expert.

With the cost of living going up and up, now might be just the time to get on with numbers.

So, if you’re one of the 49% of adults that are underconfident when it comes to anything about maths, you’ll be able to get the support you need in the way you need it from the Multiply programme in Autumn 2022. From flexible online courses to one-to-one mentoring, learn how you want, when you want.

Multiply has been launched as part of the government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) programme, by the Department for Education (DfE).

Who’s it for?

The free numeracy courses are for:

  • Staffordshire residents aged 19+
  • Individuals that have not achieved a maths GCSE of at least a Grade C or equivalent.
  • Individuals who may want to develop numeracy skills for work or progression.
  • Individuals that want to brush up and develop their numeracy skills for everyday life.

You’ll be able to access a range of support and courses from October 2022 to March 2025. Watch this space.
