Post-16 maths for all: the role of Core Maths

Matt Homer, Rachel Mathieson
Core Maths qualifications were introduced in 2014 to increase post-16 maths participation in England, which is low compared to international competitors. This policy note summarises a three-year study investigating the adoption of Core Maths in schools and colleges. It highlights that Core Maths is well received by teachers and students, but national uptake remains low compared to the government's initial hopes, and further support for Core Maths is needed.
