A change in the eligibility criteria means even more people can improve their number skills - with wild-water swims, science fairs and maths bingo just some of the ways Multiply has helped people.

Now, even more people will be able to access Numeracy for Living - Multiply courses following a change to the eligibility criteria.
 
The Multiply project helps adults improve their confidence with numbers in everyday life, offering easy access to a wide range of FREE maths courses across North Wales.
 
To be eligible for Multiply courses through Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, you now simply need to be 19 years or over, and live within the counties of Gwynedd, Anglesey, Conwy or Denbighshire.
 
So whether you need help with managing your money, supporting your children with their homework,or you want to progress at work or onto higher levels of training, Multiply can help - and in more ways than you might realise.
 
In recent weeks, people from across the region have measured their metrics after a dip in the sea off Trearddur Bay, played maths bingo in Caernarfon, and challenged themselves with puzzles at a Bangor University science fair.
 
People have developed their cooking and budgeting skills in a pizza school and a cake-baking session, while Multiply tutors also set maths tasks at a Tourism and Hospitality Jobs Fair in Llangefni.
 
Individuals can also work towards a Level 2 qualification (GCSE or Essential Skills Wales Application of Number), fully funded under the Multiply project, to progress into further studies or employment. The support can be provided on a 1:1 basis, to a small group or classroom and can work around family, work and other commitments.
 
Multiply works with individuals, community groups, third-sector organisations, schools, and small and large businesses. The flexibility of the project means support can be tailored for individual or group needs.
 
The content of the courses is wide-ranging and flexible, while Multiply sessions can be held on weekdays, weeknights or weekends.
 
Multiply is funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. Grŵp Llandrillo Menai leads on the Multiply project in Gwynedd, Anglesey, Conwy and Denbighshire.
