The grants, allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, aim to fund innovative learning methods in workplaces and community initiatives.

It includes Lincolnshire Multiply Champions - organisations or groups that recognise the importance of maths skills in both the workplace and everyday life.

In the first two years, 134 'Lincolnshire Multiply Champions' were recruited, and last year, over 2,000 learners participated in around 450 courses.

Thea Croxall, adult learning manager at Lincolnshire County Council, emphasised maths skills' significance in everyday life and business growth.

“We’ve had two very successful years of the programme, and we’re excited to see how we can get even more people involved over the next year,” she said.

“Our champions have consistently shown great creativity to encourage and support people to achieve better numeracy skills. I’m sure that will be no different for this round of applications.”
