The schools White Paper The Importance of Teaching underlines the importance the Government attach to mathematics education and the need to increase uptake at all levels including post-16. Key to increasing the study of maths post-16 is good teaching and we will continue to support initiatives to increase the number of specialist mathematics teachers and improve the skills of existing teachers.
Our plans to reform the national curriculum and qualifications will ensure that children gain the knowledge they need in mathematics in order to develop their understanding and progress further. The inclusion of GCSE mathematics in the English Baccalaureate will also help to drive up engagement and attainment in mathematics.
We will also invest in programmes to support the teaching of A-level mathematics such as the further mathematics support programme.
