The Multiply Programme - Get on with numbers


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 unconfident 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. From flexible online courses to one-to-one mentoring, learn how you want, when you want.

Who’s it for?

The Multiply programme is primarily aimed at Staffordshire residents aged 19+ that have not achieved a level 2 maths qualification, i.e., GCSE of at least a Grade C/4 or equivalent.

It is aimed at those who may want to develop their numeracy skills for work or progression and those that want to brush up and develop their numeracy skills for everyday life and work.

With this in mind, the Department for Education have expanded the eligibility criteria to include individuals that have achieved a level 2 maths qualification or above, are no longer working at that level and would like to improve their maths skills to:

  • help them to get a job.
  • help them to progress in their career.
  • help to progress to a higher level of learning.
  • help to fill a gap in their maths skills or knowledge.

You can access a range of courses in the course directory.

What’s your numeracy like?

Not sure what your numeracy level is? Why not find out with a short quiz and get some quick tips.

OR take part in the National Numeracy Challenge which aims to give you an accurate picture of your everyday maths skills through a few simple to answer questions.
