The Multiply Programme – it all adds up!
Feeling confident with numbers helps in every aspect of life, from measuring food ingredients, mixing hair dye and checking invoices, to helping the children with their homework or even setting up in business.
But if you feel uncomfortable when thinking about numbers, you’re not alone! The good news is that there is no such thing as someone who ‘can do maths’ and someone who 'cannot'. It’s learning in the right way for you that will help you get on in life. This could be applying for at a new job, improving career prospects, budgeting at home, helping the kids or saving for the future. You do not don’t need to become a maths expert to do this.
With the current increase in the cost of living, it adds up that now is time to improve your own skills in working with numbers.
Therefore, if you’re one of the 49% of adults underconfident when it comes to anything about maths, you’ll be able to get the support you need in the way you need it from the Multiply programme. From flexible online courses to one-to-one mentoring, learn how you want, when you want.
