Adult Education Wolverhampton will be hosting a fair to celebrate the success of its Multiply programme.

Launched in 2022, the Multiply courses are designed to give people the maths knowledge, skills and confidence they need to help improve their financial wellbeing, with 4 different programmes: Shop Smart – Spend Less; Debt and Health – Protect yourself; Fuel Poverty – Be energy efficient; and Look to Cook – Meal preparation and planning.

The fair will showcase individual student success and Multiply’s links with partners across the city, which has seen Adult Education offer taster sessions with organisations such as the city’s Family Hubs so that their staff can pass on tips and tricks to the people they work with.

The fair is open to everyone and takes place at Adult Education Wolverhampton's Old Hall Street base from 9.30am to noon on Tuesday 27 February, 2024.

Councillor Jacqui Coogan, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Work, said: “Adult Education Wolverhampton launched its Multiply courses in 2022 to help residents through the cost of living crisis by growing their confidence in dealing with everyday money matters, and they have proved very popular.

“Many people are currently experiencing financial difficulties, and it is important that they have the essential skills they need to help them manage those challenges as best they can.

“As well as running courses for the general public, our Multiply team work with a number of local organisations. For instance, they recently delivered tailor made courses to staff at our Family Hubs so they could engage with the families they support. Staff said how useful the sessions were, and how they now feel more confident in speaking to their families about the issues that Multiply covers.”
