A new study from the Centre for Research in Mathematics Education will look at the effectiveness of a professional development programme in helping to improve the results of GCSE maths resits.
In 2013, the coalition government introduced a policy that said that students in England in full-time education who fail to get at least C grades in English and maths should carry on studying them until the age of 18.
But in a speech to the Association of Colleges Ofsted conference, the Head of Ofsted said that ‘last year, less than a fifth of students achieved the required grades (in mathematics) when they resat and two thirds did not improve on their original grades,’ adding, that the statistics were ‘frankly miserable’.
Now, a new study called ‘Maths for Life' will investigate whether a professional development programme is effective in improving the outcomes of maths GCSE resits
