Purpose of Report: The authority has received £0.8m of funding for the ‘multiply’ initiative which aims to see local areas invest in meaningful participation that boosts people’s ability to use maths in their daily life, at home and work – and enable adults to achieve formal qualification that can open doors for them (such as into a job, progression in a job, or progression to further study). This funding is received over a three year period and an investment plan requires approval before submission to the Department for Education by 30 June 2022.
The Executive Member will be asked on whether investment proposal meets the aims of the funding and best reflects the needs of City of York.
(i) That in principle the submission of the investment plan, as set out in the Annex to the report, be approved.
(ii) That authority be delegated to the Director of Customer and Communities to agree the final version of the plan for sign off by the Chief Operating Officer for submission to the Department for Education (DfE) by 30 June 2022.
Reason: To facilitate the finalisation of an agreed plan that will then release funds for the project.
