What is a Multiply Numeracy Champion?

25% of companies in West Yorkshire say they want to improve their employees’ basic maths skills, a Multiply numeracy champion in your workplace can help. 

Multiply is a scheme designed to help build confidence and remove anxiety around maths and numeracy for people who are required to use such skills as some part of their job, without it being the dominant feature. 

The course is free to the company as it is funded via the West Yorkshire Combined Authority. 

How can a Multiply Numeracy Champion help your business?
