Multiply for businesses, organisations and schools

Multiply is a national scheme funded by the government providing learning opportunities to improve numeracy skills in the UK population.

Skills & Learning is working in partnership with other learning and training providers, employers. community services, charities and voluntary organisations to offer Multiply workshops and courses all across Dorset. These courses have been designed to improve practical number, money skills and confidence at home and at work for adults (minimum age 19) with lower level numeracy skills.

Confidence is the key word as anxiety around maths has been found to be the biggest barrier to people improving their numeracy skills, despite a large proportion of the UK population struggling with the basics. Multiply workshops are supportive, exam free and help people to overcome their confidence issues and develop a positive mindset when it comes to money and numbers.
