Mathematics in Further Education Colleges - Interim Report

The interim report for the two-year Mathematics in Further Education Colleges, has been released today.

Background for the project

In recent years a great deal of policy and research attention has centred on advanced post-16 mathematics. This project will focus instead on mathematics within vocational pathways in Further Education (FE) colleges in England with a particular emphasis on the progression of those with low attainment at GCSE.

The project takes a multi-scale view of this complex system and the interlinking factors that shape the learning experiences and trajectories of young people with mathematics. This includes a close examination of the intersection between their mathematical and vocational learning and the ways in which mathematics policies and practices are enacted in FE colleges.

The project staff are colleagues from the Centre for Research in Mathematics Education, Professor Andy Noyes, Dr Diane Dalby and Dr Mike Adkins
