Apply for a Multiply fund

About fund

Multiply will offer easy access to free numeracy courses, launching this year across the UK. This will enable residents of Lincolnshire to improve their numeracy skills at work or in everyday life.

The Multiply provision:

  • helps to improve functional numeracy skills
  • complements, and does not duplicate courses funded via the Adult Education Budget
  • allows Lincolnshire residents the chance to progress to that provision
