Effective practice in the delivery and teaching of English and Mathematics to 16-18 year olds 


A report from the Department for Education on effective teaching and provision of English and mathematics to those without GCSE grades A* to C.

The report aims to identify factors associated with effective delivery and teaching of English and mathematics to this cohort, particularly in non-selective FE settings. 

The objectives set out at the start of the study were:

  • Understand whether institutions with significantly above average results differ from or take similar approaches to other institutions on the delivery and teaching of English and mathematics
  • Understand why there is such significant variation in 16-18 GCSE and Functional Skills pass rates across non-selective institutions
  • Identify any effective practices that could be replicated in institutions facing challenges to effectively teach English and mathematics to students yet to achieve good GCSE passes

It is anticipated that the report will be helpful to providers looking to improve their teaching and results in English and mathematics GCSE and Functional Skills to 16 to 18 year old students who have not yet gained at least a Grade C at GCSE (or a Grade 4 under the new examination). The full report provides a number of examples of the actions providers take to deliver GCSE and Functional Skills English and mathematics.
