Multiply is a selection of free courses to help you improve your maths skills. It can help you in your everyday life, from managing your finances or helping your children with their homework. It can also help you get a new job or study for further qualifications.

Types of courses through Multiply

Multiply gives you access to beginner and advanced courses and qualifications. They can take from as little as 2 hours to a few weeks to complete. Some are available in the evenings and part time.

They cover different maths topics which can:

  • increase your confidence with numbers
  • help you use maths in everyday life, such as budgeting, cooking and gardening
  • lead to qualifications afterwards, such as functional skills and GCSEs
  • support you to progress in work or to higher levels of training

Entry requirements for Multiply courses

You can start a Multiply course if you’re 19 or over and you do not have at least a grade 4 (previously grade C) in GCSE maths or qualifications at the same level.

If you think Multiply could help you get a job or access higher levels or training, you might be eligible regardless of the qualification you have.

Qualification you’ll earn

You might be able to get a qualification depending on the course provider.

You can read the details for each individual course to check if you'll get a qualification at the end.

A Multiply course can also help you get a qualification, such as a Functional Skills Qualification or GCSE.

Check your numeracy level

You can take the Multiply quiz to get an idea of your current maths skills.

The short quiz has 6 multiple choice numeracy questions that will take you around 5 minutes to complete.

You can use a calculator if you want and the quiz will explain how to work out the correct answer if you’re not sure.
