Reasons for the decision:

The type of provision offered compliments other interventions granted and ensures a holistic offer.

Alternative options considered:

The options considered provide a broad and balanced approach to delivering outreach and accredited interventions from the menu on offer. This provision provides interventions not offered during year 1, and not proposed by other interested organisations.

Other reasons / organisations consulted

In May 2022, Employment and Skills officers engaged with stakeholders and invited expressions of interest to deliver the Multiply interventions. Subsequent further engagement took place and interventions discussed and defined. Later, the Multiply Team undertook further engagement with local training providers facilitated by the Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Swindon Training Partnership (GWP). In response to this, Prospects Training Services came forward and engaged with us to scope a localised multiply offer.
