This is a new service – your feedback will help us to improve it.


Multiply is a fully funded government scheme that offers maths courses to adults aged 19 and over.

The course aims to boost numeracy skills in work and daily life. They range from drop-in sessions to longer intensive courses.  

You can work with local authorities or providers to design numeracy courses that are specific and relevant to your business.  

Multiply will be available until the end of March 2025.

Benefits for your business

Multiply courses can: 

  • increase employee confidence with numbers and encourage them to use their numeracy skills at work
  • reduce numeracy related mistakes at work, and boost productivity, increase profits and improve employee retention  
  • motivate employees to pursue different forms of training that may benefit the business in the future


All courses and offers included in the scheme are fully funded by the government.

Courses can be delivered flexibly to limit pressures on any existing commitments you may have as an employer.

Your responsibilities

Multiply does not require a work placement and you do not need to contribute to the training. 

You may need to encourage your employees to participate. 

Your employees can take a short quiz to assess their numeracy skills and help them find the right course for them.
