Multiply your maths skills and your opportunities

Would you like to improve your number skills? Do you lack confidence in carrying out day to day numerical tasks?

If the answer is yes, Buckinghamshire Adult Learning could have the answer. They are launching new, free, numeracy courses for adults to help with everyday maths skills.

The government-funded Multiply scheme is part of Buckinghamshire Council’s new ‘Opportunity Bucks’ programme which aims to improve outcomes for people in Buckinghamshire. Gaining new skills and qualifications can open up a range of opportunities for people, from new jobs to greater confidence in everyday life.

Anita Cranmer, Cabinet Member for Education & Children’s Services said: “Maths can be a scary word for many people, and the mere mention of ‘numeracy skills’ is enough to bring some people out into a cold sweat. But numbers are unavoidable in everyday life, and as adults we all have to deal with things like shopping budgets, bills and even helping children with their maths homework.

“School is not the only chance you get to learn things, and especially when it comes to maths, it’s never too late to improve your skills. Better understanding of numbers can transform your daily life, from making the most of your money, to getting a new job.”

Anita continued: “I would urge anyone who feels lacking in confidence when it comes to numbers to take this opportunity and change your life with these free Multiply workshops.”

Get in touch today to find out how Multiply can help you and what free courses would suit you best. The courses are free to adults over the age of 19 who do not already have a GCSE at grade C or equivalent in maths.
