No Bars to Multiply

Get ahead by getting on with numbers…

‘No Bars to Multiply’ is a project that provides opportunities for training and support into employment for people and communities in Wales. This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF).


The No Bars to Multiply Project is a new project to support individuals in developing their maths skills.
