How Improving Your Basic Maths Skills Benefits Your Work Life

The Care Sector

If you work in the care sector, in order to do your job well or get a higher position, you might need to put a staff rota together. We’ll work with you and your employer to create a package of support that’s tailored to your needs so that you can develop the precise basic maths skills you need. This means that you’ll be able to do your job more confidently and effectively, and you’ll be able to progress further and be paid more.

The retail sector

If you work in a shop, you’ll need to make as much profit as you can. This could involve planning special offers on certain products. You’ll need to work with numbers to figure out how to put these offers together, and it could include adding numbers together, taking away amounts, and looking at percentages. Talk to us about the precise areas you need help with, and we’ll ensure you get the support you need.

The Hospitality Sector

As a chef, you may be asked to reduce the amount you spend on ingredients so that the cost of food can be kept down for customers. We can help you look at budgeting and cost of living skills to make it easier for you, making things much less stressful for you and your employer.

Get the Support You Need

You can work with us in your own time, or you can work with us alongside your employer to get the precise support you need. All of our time and support is provided for free.

We’re delivering Multiply in places across York and North Yorkshire, including Harrogate, Scarborough, Richmondshire, Ryedale, Craven, Hambleton, Selby and more.

Our sessions are delivered both in person and online (through our CENTURY app), so you’ll be able to find the right opportunity for you. We have expert delivery partners working throughout the area to help you improve your basic maths skills so that you can thrive, both at work and at home.

Who Said Numbers are Boring?

Benefits of Our Basic Maths Skills Programme for Employers

We also work with employers and we support you to increase the skills of your workforce. Employers that work with us see many benefits, including:

  • Better staff performance
  • More confident workers
  • Bespoke programmes of support for employees
  • Improved business efficiency
  • Reduced skills gaps
  • Save costs on training – we’ll support you for free

Some employers struggle to fill certain roles because the people applying for them may lack skills in certain areas. Many skills gaps often crop up around numeracy. Numeracy is about understanding numbers and being able to use them in everyday tasks both at work and at home. We work with both employers and job seekers to improve basic maths skills and get roles filled. Improving skills means that people can perform well in their new jobs, which clearly benefits both employers and job seekers.

Any business in York and North Yorkshire, no matter how small or large, can access our support for free. We’ll provide a bespoke skills programme for your business to fill any basic maths skills gaps your employees have. We can even train one of your employees to become a numeracy champion so they can then support and train people in your business for years to come.
