Unlock Your Potential - Skills for Life

Multiply is a new FREE fully-funded programme to help adults across the UK to improve their numeracy skills.

Multiply is the perfect opportunity to upskill the workforce using specialised training sessions or workshops to gain a better understanding of the Maths used on the day to day job.  

Improving your employee’s numeracy skills can help improve the quality of your workforce and encourage better productivity.

By encouraging your staff to increase their numeracy skills, you are likely to see a reduction in numeracy related mistakes.

Multiply also helps with:

  • Support for new recruits lacking confidence with numbers
  • Building employee and employer confidence with numbers in life and work
  • Motivating your employees to pursue different forms of training in the workplace
  • Supporting your employees to progress within your organisation
