Extra £600 maths funding
Last month, the government released more details of the additional 16 to 19 funding for schools to support post-16 mathematics. It said:
"The advanced maths premium is paid at a rate of £600 per year per additional student for one or 2 years, depending on the type and size of qualification studied.
The premium will first be paid automatically in 16 to 19 funding allocations for the academic year 2019 to 2020. For this payment, the number of additional students will be measured between the average of academic years 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017 and academic year 2018 to 2019."

Core Maths qualifies for one year of funding under the advanced maths premium. You can find out how Exeter College, City and Islington College and East Berkshire College set up and delivered Core Maths in their centres in this case study.
Here at the National STEM Learning Centre, we are offering 'An introduction to core maths', a three-day residential, ENTHUSE Bursary supported course to help you set up Core Maths in your school. You can find more details and book here.
