Leading GCSE English and maths for post 16 learners
The Education and Training Foundation has funded a new set of resources, to support leaders and governors responsible for the leadership of the delivery of GCSE English and maths.
The resources are available at the website www.gcseleadership.com. There is an introductory video outlining the store of research and materials and how they can be accessed and used to help you and your organisation pro-actively respond to this significant policy change.
The resources are designed to increase awareness of the changes taking place and to share effective practice on how they can be implemented through the strategic activities of leaders, governors and boards. The resources include eCPD modules, research and reference materials, self-assessment approaches, action plans, tool-kits, supported by audio and video clips.
The development of the resources involved more than 180 senior leaders and 100 governing board members from over 80 provider organisations in three regional groupings of providers led by The East Midlands Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training (emCETT), Abingdon and Witney College and FE Sussex respectively.

Increasing provision in English and mathematics through strategic planning
Four good practice case studies of further education and skills providers offering 16–19 study programmes:
The 16 to 19 study programmes for all young people of this age group, apart from apprentices, require that all students without a GCSE at grade C or above in English and/or mathematics should continue to study these subjects. This has been a condition of funding for each of these students since September 2014.
