We’re encouraging our tenants to hop on board the Multiply Bus – part of Buckinghamshire Adult Learning’s free numeracy workshops – when it visits High Wycombe as part of its Multiply initiative from Monday (13th February).

Multiply is a new government-funded scheme, part of Buckinghamshire Council’s new ‘Opportunity Bucks’ programme, to help adults (19 years+) who don’t already have a maths GCSE at grade 4 (or equivalent).

Good numeracy skills and improving confidence in maths may unlock job opportunities and lead to higher wages or help prepare for further study. These skills can also help in everyday life, with tasks such as managing a household budget, getting a new job, or helping children with their homework.

The bus will help Buckinghamshire Adult Learning’s team promote their free numeracy courses. Visiting the Multiply Bus gives you the opportunity to speak face-to-face with an expert who can help you find the right course for you.
