Multiply - FREE maths support for adults

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

If you’re aged 19+, live in Nottinghamshire and don’t have maths GCSE at grade 4/C (or equivalent), you can access these FREE numeracy courses to build your confidence with numbers and progress towards gaining 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.
