Mathematics in Further Education Colleges (MiFEC)

A new report into the state of mathematics education across England’s Further Education sector, including why fewer than 20% of 16 to 18 year-olds pass their GCSE Mathematics resit, has found that major investment in leadership training and teacher professional development is required to make more significant and sustained improvements.

The Mathematics in Further Education Colleges Project (MiFEC), led by Professor Andrew Noyes and funded by the Nuffield Foundation, is the most extensive research yet into the changing state of mathematics education in England’s Further Education colleges.  

In their report, the MiFEC team explain how a range of policies, processes, and people interact at different colleges and across the FE sector, to either support or hinder improvement in mathematics learning.
