Mathematics in Further Education Colleges

The final report of the three-year Mathematics in Further Education Colleges project has been published today.

Funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the project has focussed 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.

Today's final report written by Professor Andy Noyes and Dr Diane Dalby concludes that in order to improve the quality of post-16 maths education, teacher supply, initial training and career-long CPD need to be urgently improved, as does leadership development. 

Professor Noyes and Dr Dalby discuss the project and findings in more details in an article in TES.
