North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) is inviting applications for provision related to our Multiply programme. We are interested in innovative proposals that focus on one or more of three delivery themes: Community Engagement, Family Learning and Numeracy Skills for the Workplace.

Our regional Multiply approach has been designed based on consultation and joint working with a wide range of organisations and stakeholders. Through this work we have compiled a range of evidence, information and intelligence to demonstrate our regional need.

We wish to focus our investment on the individuals who would benefit most from the provision. We also want to ensure that clear progression pathways are available for those who take part in the programme. As such, the first year of our regional Multiply delivery is targeted at adults aged 19+ who don’t already have a full Level 2 qualification in maths and supports both the employed and the unemployed.

A key requirement of the Multiply programme, as set by the Department for Education (DfE) is that it cannot duplicate or destabilise AEB delivery. Therefore, Multiply can only support participants who are not engaged with Maths qualifications at Level 1 or 2. Multiply participants must be eligible to access government funded education and skills provision. NTCA funded Multiply provision should primarily support residents and employers in the North of Tyne Combined Authority region.
