Multiply - Boosting maths skills

Multiply is a new government funded initiative to help adults improve their numeracy skills.

It offers free numeracy courses that can help improve your maths, whether that's for use in your home life or at work.

Many people feel a little uncomfortable at the thought of using numbers. If this is how you feel, you're not alone.

Across the UK about 1 in 4 adults have a low level of numeracy.

We want to change this.

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.
