Core Maths: Matt Homer & Rachel Mathieson in conversation with Luke Mcfarline
Welcome to this podcast series on Inclusion & Education. Our research brings together experts in education, childhood & youth studies with an aim to promote equality across family, educational, policy, legal and community settings. In this episode, three researchers from the School of Education, University of Leeds are discussing work they have been doing which focuses on a relatively new post-16 maths option, known as Core Maths. For a long time, the only post-16 maths qualification available in most schools and colleges has been A-level Mathematics, which is only accessible to the very highest attaining students. The introduction of a different maths course, which is suitable for any student who has a standard pass at GCSE, has been warmly welcomed, since it should enable many more students in England to continue with maths. If for any reason you cannot access the recording, and also, if you would like to read more about our work on Core Maths, please visit our project website.  To read more about our work on inclusion and education, please visit the School of Education webpages, or the pages of ICY: Inclusion, Childhood & Youth Research Centre and the Centre for Curriculum, Pedagogy & Policy.
