Multply programme welcomes new partner

Warwickshire County Council are pleased to announce their new partner on the Multiply Programme.

Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training (CWCCT) has been awarded £96,000 to deliver ‘Work in Numbers’ which will target the numeracy skills deficit in the county through vocationally tailored learning in a variety of key sectors.  

CWCCT’s significant place in the training landscape of Warwickshire will support the programme to upskill and increase the numeracy skill set across the county. The core theme for learners will be to make maths relatable and familiar as this will build confidence and positive attitudes by approaching maths in a job connected way. 

Sally Lucas, Executive Director of CWCCT commented “We are pleased and excited to be working in partnership with Warwickshire County Council to deliver Multiply across the county. We will tailor numeracy learning within the context of peoples’ job roles to ensure working with numbers is accessible and familiar”.                                                                                                                         

Cllr Martin Watson, Warwickshire County Council Portfolio Holder for Economy, said, “Poor numeracy skills can hold people back from having the confidence to get on in life and into the world of work. We are very pleased to work with our partners across the county to really address local numeracy needs and make sure that, if adults have barriers to getting on and prospering in the workplace, we can help to overcome them.” 

“It’s not only about helping people to prosper in their working lives, through Multiply Funding there is the scope to fund projects which can help parents who are wanting to better support their kids with their Maths homework so we can pass the benefit onto other generations.” 

Multiply has so far supported nearly 1000 people in Warwickshire to improve their numeracy. Four projects have been supported so far with more to come, including partnerships with WCC’s Adult Learning and Community Learning Team www.warwickshire.gov.uk/acl, CWCDA’s Money, Money, Maths Money, Money, Maths - Coventry & Warwickshire CDA (cwcda.co.uk) Pet Xi www.pet-xi.co.uk/opportunities/multiply-skills-for-life-duplicate-1/ and North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College www.nwslc.ac.uk/multiply
