Why do I need Maths GCSE when I only want to be a brickie?

Principal focus of the project

This project investigated why vocational learners don't engage fully with GCSE Maths resits as part of their study programmes.

What is this about and what were the main findings?

The study was triggered by signifiantly lower pass rates amongst vocational students. A combination of staff interviews, observations and learner voice inform this report.
