North Northamptonshire Council invites Grant Applications for the Provision of Multiply Services.

The overall objective of Multiply Services is to increase the levels of functional numeracy in the adult population across the UK. The following success measures have been identified for the whole programme at a national level:

• More adults achieving maths qualifications courses (up to and including Level 2 - with GCSE's and Functional Skills Qualifications as the qualifications of choice in England - or equivalent)
• Improved labour market outcomes e.g. fewer numeracy skills gaps reported by employers, and an increase in the proportion of adults that progress into sustained employment and/or education
• Increased adult numeracy across the population

The target group for the Multiply programme is adults that are ordinarily resident in the North Northamptonshire area.

The Multiply Services will be in Lots (please refer to Multiply Services documents).

The grant will be for three years starting January 2023 (subject to NNC retaining the grant allocation),
