Courses across Glasgow to improve your number skills

Age 19+ and live or work in Glasgow? The WEA have a range of  FREE online and face-to-face numeracy courses. 

If you struggle with numbers (or know someone who does), you should know you’re not alone…8 out of 10 adults feel negative about numbers. 

Studies prove that maths skills can be learned at any age and stage, with the right support and there's never been a better time to get help with your number skills. 

The Glasgow Multiply offer targets both workplace and community learning opportunities. This large programme can provide flexible delivery times and locations for adults over 19 who do not have maths qualifications equivalent to National 5 (Standard Grade Credit/ O’Level at a grade C+/Intermediate 2). There are examples of courses listed below but we are open to developing new offers in response to need. 

We create bespoke courses and 1-2-1 support in workplaces and community spaces across Glasgow. Courses are designed to meet the learning needs and desires of groups and individuals. We are an SQA Centre and can accredit learning at levels 2 and 3, and our digital badges evidence learning up to level 5. Examples of the type of courses we offer are below, but we can design a course to your exact needs - just get in touch!
