Around 17 million adults in England – half of the working-age population – have the numeracy skills of primary school children. Poor numeracy skills can hold people back from having the confidence to get on in life and into work. Those who improve their numeracy skills are more likely to be in employment, have higher wages, and have better wellbeing.
Multiply will offer North Lincolnshire residents aged 19 and above, who do not already have a GCSE grade C/4 or higher in Maths or equivalent and need to improve their numeracy, free flexible courses that fit around their lives.
Multiply is aimed at helping people improve their ability to understand and use maths in daily life, home, and work. Whether for improving household finances, helping children with homework, making more sense of facts in the media, or improving numeracy skills specific to a line of work.
Support through Multiply will be available late Autumn 2022.
