At Weymouth College we are delighted to be a delivery partner in Multiply, which is a new government-funded programme to help adults across the UK to improve their numeracy skills.

You can view the full list of Multiply courses we offer at the bottom of this page.

So, what is Multiply?

Launched in 2022, Multiply offers adults access to FREE numeracy courses with the opportunity to build confidence using numbers in daily life, home, and work and gain formal numeracy qualifications.

Our courses will help you understand and improve household finances, help your children with homework, make more sense of the stats and facts in the media, or improve numeracy skills specific to your line of work.

People who improve their numeracy skills are more likely to be in employment, have higher wages, and better wellbeing, and will be more able to progress to higher levels of free training to secure a skilled job in our economy.

Multiply FAQs

Who can benefit from Multiply?

You can be part of Multiply if you’re aged 19+ and don’t currently have maths GCSE at grade C (or equivalent) and live in the Dorset Council area. There are courses for beginners and those who want to build on existing maths knowledge.

As a business owner, could Multiply be good for your staff and business?

Yes – businesses who develop their employees’ numeracy skills can boost productivity, increase profits, and also improve employee retention. Employers will be able to utilise Multiply courses to upskill their existing workforces, through our range of flexible and bespoke training, which will enable learners to progress onto work-ready Functional Skills in Maths or GCSE Maths.

Can I take more than one Multiply course?

You can only undertake one Multiply course in each funding year.
