West Sussex County Council’s Adult Learning team are taking their Multiply bus on a roadshow across the county, encouraging more people to find out about free training and learning opportunities available to help people improve their maths skills.

The county council is offering free local courses and activities for adults (aged 19+) who do not already have a GCSE grade c/4 or higher in maths and want to improve their numeracy skills. The programme’s focus is to support residents to engage in free training and activities including:

•         Increasing number confidence

•         Improving money management

•         Confidence to help your children with their homework

•         Gain maths skills to help you with employment/career progression

•         Learning new skills in your local community

•         Helping your small business go greener

Your ‘local’ destinations where anyone can drop in and visit the Multiply bus between 10am and 4pm on the following dates are:

•          Wednesday 13 March, County Hall, West Street in Chichester

•         Friday 15 March, Aldingbourne Trust Country Centre

•         Saturday 16 March, Petworth National Trust car park (please note the start time for this date is 10.30am)

Jacquie Russell, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People, Learning and Skills, said: “Maths is so important for everyday life and an area where many of us can lack confidence and the necessary skills. Helping people and communities to achieve their potential through learning is a priority for West Sussex County Council. I would encourage anyone interested to visit the bus and find out more about what is on offer.”
