What the course is about

Please note, all the information below regards Get Maths Confident for Work (Multiply). This is to register for the next available course at a centre near you or online. When you have registered, we will contact you to match you up to a suitable course. 

Rather than jumping straight into an exam course, Get Maths Confident for Work provides a gentle re-introduction to key maths knowledge, allowing time to build your confidence and practise relevant maths skills – all in a friendly and supportive online class which runs at the same time each week.  

In just about any job, you use maths every day. But workplace numeracy is embedded in daily tasks and can feel very different from the maths we learned at school. 

This 10-week course covers work-relevant maths topics helping you to apply maths skills in everyday work scenarios so it really makes sense. 

Your tutor will: 

  • Introduce these topics in a clear way, using examples from real life and work 

  • Give lots of opportunity to practise number skills  

  • Provide regular feedback on your progress and support with any topics where you need more help 

You will also have: 

  • Access to online resources to strengthen and extend your learning 

  • Information and advice on next steps including moving on to other courses and exams

Pre-course information session or interview

If you think this course is right for you, please Apply for a place and we will be in touch.

The first session will be a chat with your teacher to find out about your learning goals and check you are on the right course for your current level before we complete your enrolment. This may include an online assessment.

Assessment of progress, tests, exams

There are no exams on this course although you may be expected to complete some homework tasks and short assessments during the course.

Your teachers will review your progress with you from time to time to make sure you are staying on track for your learning goals.

Who the course is for / Previous experience, knowledge or qualifications

This course is for adults (19 to 99) who do not already have GCSE maths at Grade C (4) or above or an equivalent Level 2 maths qualification. If you are not sure whether you have a Level 2 qualification or not, please contact us.

It is for people who want to improve their maths skills in the workplace whether that is for a career change or simply to feel more confident and in control of your numeracy at work.

It is also right for you if you are considering gaining a maths qualification to improve your job prospects but want to brush up your maths before moving on to an exam course.
