Post 16 Participation

This is a national project to increase the participation of post-16 students in advanced mathematics courses of various types, including A Level and Core Maths. The project has a collaborative approach which aims to exchange and share best practice amongst participants to increase the level of participation.


Who will be leading the group?

Amanda Tunmore, Churchill Community College
Supported by Haydon Bridge High School, Northumberland

Who is it for?

This project is for subject leads with the responsibility of delivering post 16 mathematics.

What are the intended outcomes?

Develop full understanding of the type and quality of the full range of providers of level 3 post 16 Maths across the North East region.  Identification of good practice which appears to lead to high participation rates and as part of this, to foster good relationships between the members of the work group.

What will it involve?

In the initial phase, each hub is identifying schools and colleges with a track record of high participation rates in advanced mathematics courses, identifying the strategies that have led to this successful engagement, and exploring ways of helping schools and colleges with lower participation rates implement those strategies themselves.

As this is a research project the activities will initially involve meeting to identify barriers and issues, as well as identify methods of best practice. A support programme will be formulated to guide participants and outline activities which can be utilised to increase participation.

What is the cost?

No cost
