Post-16 Mathematics: Planning for success

01 December 2012

This papers focusses on increasing participation to dramatically increasing the number of young people studying mathematics up to the age of 18. Creating a new mathematics qualification will not in itself achieve our goals of increasing post-16 mathematics provision and participation. This document and the actions described in it should be considered to be an essential part of choosing to implement the post-16 mathematics strategy; insufficient attention to the factors described here will mean that the aspirations of the strategy will not be met.
