Multiply Scheme

8 June, 2022

Multiply is a government-funded programme to help adults across the UK to improve their numeracy skills. Having good numeracy skills can help individuals:

  • unlock new job opportunities or progress in work
  • earn higher wages
  • take the next step to higher levels of training for example, in England, an apprenticeship or level 3 qualification (equivalent to A levels).

Boosting an individual’s numeracy abilities can also help with everyday tasks like understanding bills and budgeting.
