By the numbers - Further maths

19th April 2013 at 01:00

A project to support the take-up of further maths is to be extended after a significant rise in the number of students opting to study the subject.

The Further Mathematics Support Programme, which has been running since March 2009, is to be given a further #163;25 million over the next five years, the government has announced.

The funding is used to target schools and colleges where no students are studying further maths. More than 2,500 schools are now registered with the programme, which provides training courses for teachers, online teaching resources and tuition for students.

The extended funding will mean that help can also be given to teachers to prepare their students for other qualifications used as entrance exams by leading universities.
