What is Multiply?

Complete the form below to apply for a course and  a member of the Multiply team will be in contact.


Who is it for?

If you are aged 19 or over and do not hold a GCSE in maths at grade C or above (4 to 9 under the new grading system) from the past 10 years, or an equivalent qualification, you can access free courses through the Multiply project.

How can we help you?

Everyday life skills:

  • Would you like to know how much money you could save every year by changing your shopping habits?
  • Would you like to gain a better understanding of where your money goes and how to decrease your monthly outgoings?

If this sounds interesting then why not join our Really Useful Maths They Don't Teach You at School course, where you will learn all about different types of outgoings and incomes, and how to apply these to a monthly budget.

Helping your children with maths:

  • Do you find it difficult to understand the new methods schools use to teach maths in primary schools?
  • Would you benefit from learning these methods, which could help give you the tools to help your child with homework?

If these are questions you often ask yourself, the Maths To Support Your Primary Aged Child course could be for you! We offer weekly sessions covering the Primary Curriculum Maths subjects, giving you tips on how your child will be taught in class and how you can help from home.

Upskilling for a job (new or current):

  • Do you require a GCSE or Functional Skills Level 2 qualification to progress in your current workplace?
  • Have you seen a University Course you would love to get stuck in to, but not having a Maths qualification is preventing you from perusing your dream career?

If this sounds like you, the Try Before you Buy Functional Skills course could be hugely beneficial to you.
