The Northampton Town FC Community Trust receive funding for a new employability programme.

In partnership with North Northamptonshire Council & Winning With Numbers they can now support adults across parts of the county to develop confidence in their numeracy skills and enhance life opportunities.

A new & exciting opportunity has emerged for the Northampton Town FC Community Trust, due to the employability department having been successful in an application bid with North-Northamptonshire Council for Department for Education ‘Multiply’ funding. This will allow the Community Trust to kick start new programmes supporting adults across deprived areas of North Northamptonshire to develop confidence in their numeracy skills and enhance life opportunities.

The Multiply funding will take shape in exciting new programmes working closely within the NTFC schools’ network, working with parents/carers across a 10-week course to support their child’s development with a partnered organisation. ‘Winning With Numbers’ are an amazing online platform that bring numbers to life, the online platform supports child and parent through step-by-step learning tools.

The NTFC Community Trust will also deliver an intervention called Score, a programme tailored around Northampton Town FC, EFL and Premier League content, statistics, and football-based activities. Designed to support Money and budgeting activities linked to football transfers, fantasy football, Stadium designing challenge, numeracy problems into what it takes to be a manager and much more.

Adding to their community matchday experience with Northampton Town FC they will also deliver a unique programme where families are invited to home matches to take part in a numeracy learning day, allowing for a unique learning experience. The Multiply Matchday Experience allows for real life numeracy learning, engaging, and observing real life scenarios of how numeracy is used within matchday logistics, planning and match statistics.

Ian Crow, Employability Officer at the Northampton Town FC Community Trust said: “We are delighted to be able to provide new, exciting opportunities to work with people from North of Northamptonshire to develop confidence in numeracy skills and enhance their life opportunities.
