Multiply Numeracy Project

Multiply is a government-funded programme to help adults improve their numeracy skills.

If you’re aged 19 and over and don’t have a 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 are courses for beginners as well as more advanced courses such as GCSE Maths, Functional Skills Qualifications, or equivalent. Online tutorials and content are also available, so you will be able to learn at a pace that suits you.

The local providers below all have Multiply courses available so you can see what is accessible nearby to you:

Alternatively, if you know what course you are looking for you can search for providers that offer that course, or just find out more information about Multiply, at Multiply - Skills for Life.
