North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) has been allocated £4.1m over the next three years for the national ‘Multiply’ programme.

Multiply is a new government-funded programme which aims to improve adult numeracy skills. Improving numeracy helps people unlock new job or training opportunities, progress in work, get higher wages and improve their wellbeing. Boosting numeracy abilities can also help with everyday tasks like bills and budgeting or helping children with homework.

NTCA hosted an online event on Monday 30 May 13.00-14.30 BST to consult with regional stakeholders on interventions that could be delivered through the Multiply programme and share learning and best practice and identify areas for collaboration.

We will publish further information about the programme here.
