South Thames College was lucky enough to be selected from a large number of colleges by The Mayor’s London Multiply Programme to take part in their videography project. The programme offers free training to support Londoners to get the numeracy, confidence and skills they need to manage everyday living at work and home. Students were showcased progressing from the Department of Working Pensions (DWP) to a Multiply course at South Thames. 

The video, which focuses on our maths and numeracy courses and the impact on learners, shows students Michelle Walcott and Paulie Paulii discussing their experiences of attending a job fair at the college to taking those steps regardless of age. Maths Tutor Temi Oye talks about her aim to ensure the students feel confident with numbers. David McClymont, Vice Principal, Curriculum & Standards, South Thames Colleges Group speaks about how students leave the course with a vision of wider potential and new avenues. 

Yuanyuan Ding, Deputy Head of School (English & Maths, Multiply, Teacher Education) at South Thames College said: “At South Thames College we see the impact of adult learning every day. It’s fantastic that so many Londoners have now had the opportunity to develop the skill they need to move into work and gain essential life skills, such as confidence and wellbeing. We’re proud to be delivering the London Multiply Programme, and the Roadshow announced today will help even more Londoners get more confidence with numeracy.”

The video is available on our website, as well as the Mayor of London’s Multiply Website and YouTube channel.
