This Westminster Education Forum event is timed to follow the publication of Sir Adrian Smith’s review into the potential for improving the quality and increasing the scale of the study of maths from 16-18 and will consider next steps for reform.

Delegates will discuss issues including whether maths should be made compulsory for students until the age of 18 and ensuring that the future workforce has appropriate mathematical and quantitative skills. They will also consider steps that need to be taken to overcome barriers to increased provision and take-up of Mathematics post-16, including teacher supply and financial constraints. (more follows)

Due to the upcoming General Election on 8 June 2017, we have now entered the period of purdah when no significant policy announcements will be made by the Government.
