The purpose of the Multiply grant is to provide support towards expenditure lawfully incurred or to be incurred by local authorities in delivering numeracy provision to adults aged 19 years and above, up to and including Level 2, boosting people’s ability to use maths in their daily life at home and work – and enabling them to achieve a formal qualification that can open doors for them.
The grant shall be used to deliver the activities that it has set out in its approved investment plan for the Multiply programme. These may, in principle, include proposals for a wide variety of activity that:
a) increase the number of adults achieving maths qualifications (up to, and including, Level 2 – with GCSEs and FSQs as our qualification of choice in England);
b) improve labour market outcomes; and
c) increase adult numeracy across the population
Examples of activities could include (interventions):
a) Courses designed to increase confidence with numbers for those needing the first steps towards formal numeracy qualifications;
b) Courses designed to help people use numeracy to manage their money;
d) Courses aimed at people who can’t apply for certain jobs because of lack of numeracy skills and/or to encourage people to upskill in numeracy order to access a certain job/career;
e) New intensive and flexible numeracy courses targeted at people without Level 2 maths, leading to a Functional Skills Qualification;
f) Courses for parents wanting to increase their numeracy skills in order to help their children and help with their own progression;
i) Numeracy activities, courses or provision developed in partnership with community organisations and other partners aimed at engaging the hardest to reach learners – for example, those not in the labour market or other groups identified locally as in need;
These activities/courses should also include working with prisoners, those recently released from prison or on temporary licence; and those 19 or over that are leaving, or have just left, the care system.
