Issue details

Investment Plan Multiply

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.

Consultation process

The plan is to submit a joint investment plan with North Yorkshire. The investment plan (template not yet produced by DfE) requires an understanding of the need for numeracy support and to ensure that programmes do not displace or replicate currently funded provision. The North York strategy and performance team are conducting research and we have produced a survey sent to all providers to ascertain areas to develop, this was dispatched 3rd May 2022.
Aim to consult with customer service groups and with citizen’s panels in North Yorkshire.
