Summary This ETF commissioned research (2014) explores the reasons why learners leave school without GCSE grade A*-C in maths and/or English. The overall aim of the research was to contribute to an evidence base to support the Foundation in its work to upskill the FE workforce and increase the number of young people gaining Level 2 maths and English. The project adopted a practitioner research approach to capture learner voice on attitudes towards learning maths and English and how learners feel they could have been supported more effectively. This approach proved highly effective in enabling practitioners to gain a deeper understanding of learners’ individual needs and learning journeys.
Audience: Governors and clerks, Leaders and managers, Practitioners, Learning support workers, Teacher trainers
