Grŵp Llandrillo Menai has launched a new service aimed at helping individuals to brush up on their maths skills and become more confident with numbers.
Launched as part of the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund, the ‘Multiply’ programme includes the opportunity to discuss and establish where you’re at in terms of your numeracy skills, and a wide variety of numeracy courses aimed at those who want to build on the foundations of their maths knowledge or wish to aspire to achieve more advanced levels such as GCSE Maths.
The Free courses are designed and targeted at individuals aged 19 and over, who have not achieved a Maths GCSE grade C (or equivalent), and live in Gwynedd, Anglesey, Conwy or Denbighshire.
Beneficiaries can also be members of community and voluntary groups, social enterprises, third sector organisations and businesses. Participants will be able to learn at their own pace - either at one-to-one sessions, or as part of a small, friendly group. Courses will be held at community venues, in workplaces or as part of a family learning initiative in local schools across the four counties.
During October, the Multiply team at Grŵp Llandrillo Menai will be holding a series of Multiply on the Road launch events across the four counties. Members of the public are invited to come along for an informal chat with a member of the team. Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be available.

Sioned Williams, Multiply Project Manager at Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, said:
“Multiply is an innovative skills training programme designed to help people improve their understanding and use of maths in daily life, at home and at work”.
“If anybody wants to feel more confident with their numeracy skills to further their career progression and further study, I would encourage them to get in touch with us or visit us at one of the roadshow locations to find out more”.
