In addition, we have and continue to run a summer school for adults with a wide range of short courses and taster sessions taking place until the end of August including a number of digital focused courses.

Rediscover your love of learning and top up your skills with a skills-based course taking place right here on your doorstep.

Ranging from three-hour workshops to three-week-long courses, our short summer courses are taught at our three college campuses: Rotherham College, North Notts College and Dearne Valley College.

Not been in education for a while? Don’t sweat it. These short summer courses are relaxed and friendly, with lots of hands-on learning. You’ll be taught by our experienced and approachable staff in an informal setting within the colleges.

Best of all, our short summer courses are completely free for all adults – regardless of your income or current employment status.

Finally, Adults looking to improve their numeracy skills can benefit from a £270 million investment in new courses, helping to level up opportunities for more people to progress and get good, well-paid jobs.

Multiply – which was launched in late 2022 – will offer adults (19+) who do not already have a GCSE grade C/4 or higher in Maths or equivalent, and need to improve their numeracy, totally free, flexible courses that fit around their lives.

RNN Group is offering these courses both in person at our colleges – Rotherham College, North Notts College and Dearne Valley College – or online, at work or at home, and either on a part time or intensive basis. These courses will equip adults across the UK (and with RNN’s support across South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire) with the numeracy skills they need to fulfil their potential.

The RNN Group is working with employers who could benefit from boosting their workforce’s skills to deliver Maths GCSEs or work-ready Functional Skills Qualifications as well as design and deliver bespoke programmes for their workforce – at no cost to them.

There is already help available for adults to improve maths and numeracy skills including fully funded maths courses up to GCSE to enable people to get the maths skills they need.

Multiply will build on this by offering a range of free training options helping people to build their confidence with maths in their everyday and working lives.

Businesses that develop their employees’ numeracy skills can also boost productivity, increase profits and improve employee retention. Research shows that sectors with a high proportion of workers with basic or advanced numeracy skills have experienced the most rapid growth in employment over the last decade.
