GCSE Maths Enhancement Programme

Derbyshire Network

3rd December, 2013

16 19 study programmes
16-19 Study Programmes

English and maths at GCSE are essential qualifications for further or higher education and employment. Students who do not hold an A*-C in these subjects will be expected to continue to study towards them as a part of their 16-19 Study Programme.

(EFA Update on the 16-19 Funding Formula 2013/14)

16 19 study programmes1
16-19 Study Programmes

This requirement will be enforced by making the study of English and mathematics a condition of the student place being funded from September 2014.

(However, the Richard Review proposal to make achieving GCSE-level qualifications a compulsory component of apprenticeships has been shelved.)

The condition of funding will be met if students are enrolled on:

  • GCSE Mathematics
  • Functional Mathematics
  • Free Standing Maths Qualifications

Functional Maths and Free Standing Maths Qualifications are seen as ‘interim’ or ‘stepping stone’ qualifications on the journey towards GCSE.
