The Centres for Excellence in Maths programme is a national improvement project aimed at delivering a step change in maths teaching up to Level 2 in post-16 settings.

The programme is funded by the Department for Education (DfE) which has chosen the Education and Training Foundation, the national workforce development body for the Further Education and Training sector, to manage and lead this programme on its behalf.

Over the next three years, the ETF will work with a range of expert delivery partners and the 21 Centres to help increase the number of young people leaving compulsory education with basic maths skills, up to GCSE and equivalent level. This is to help improve their employability and engage with further learning.

Core Themes of Activity

The programme is focussed primarily on four themes of activity:

  • An adapted approach to mathematics mastery suitable for the post-16 sector.
  • Approaches to contextualisation which support the diversity of studies in general further education.
  • Motivation and engagement approaches for learners who will often feel maths post 16 is an inevitable continuation of a cycle of failure.
  • The use of technology within mathematics education in the sector.This is being undertaken in a range of ways, including the establishment of 21 Centres for Excellence in Maths.
