2. Proposed activities to alleviate these barriers
3. Rationale behind the number of learners identified as at risk
4. Costings to deliver this additional support

Providers eligible for submitting an Expression of Interest for this support were invited to submit because:
1. According to previous academic year ILR data, they have delivered Level 2 Maths qualifications in Greater Manchester AND/OR
2. According to their submitted and approved plans for the 2022/23 academic year, they plan to deliver Level 2 Maths qualifications
