This includes a new £84 million programme to improve computing teaching, the national network of Science Learning Partnerships which provide training for science teachers, the Teaching for Mastery programme to improve the teaching of mathematics, and a new advanced maths premium to encourage more schools and colleges to teach pupils maths post-16. We are also investing in initiatives to recruit more high quality maths and physics teachers, including bursaries of up to £26,000 and scholarships of up to £28,000 to attract top graduates into teaching.</p><p>We are inviting our most selective maths universities to apply to open new specialist maths schools, to help more of our most mathematically able students to succeed in maths at top universities and pursue mathematically intensive careers. We are also encouraging the take up of STEM subjects through the University Technical College programme, which has an important role to play in our reforms to technical education.</p><p> </p><p>[1] Only a pupil’s first attempt at a qualification is counted in performance measures in line with early entry policy (<a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/676213/SFR01_2018_QualityandMethodology.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/676213/SFR01_2018_QualityandMethodology.pdf</a>).</p><p>[2] Pupils are identified as being at the end of key stage 4 if they were on roll at the school and in year 11 at the time of the January school census for that year. Age is calculated as at 31 August for that year, and the majority of pupils at the end of key stage 4 were age 15 at the start of the academic year.

Figures for earlier years cover maths and science A level entries in the final two years of advanced level study.</p><p>[7] It is not possible to directly compare figures across different years because of changes in discounting, the inclusion/exclusion of different qualifications, and changes to individual subjects.</p>

star this property answer text <p>There are duties in place to make sure that suitable, full time alternative provision (AP) is available for children of compulsory school age who have been excluded for a fixed period or permanently. Local authorities are responsible for making sure that provision meets the needs of young people in their area. This includes identifying 16 to 19 year olds who are not in education, employment or training, such as those excluded from school, and providing the help they need to participate and progress.</p><p>The department is raising the proportion of young people leaving AP to engage in education, employment and training. A high proportion of these students will have special educational needs and/or a disability and through the Children and Families Act 2014 we have put in place support to help these students to succeed alongside their peers. Young people also have access to a range of support and guidance, including the 16-19 Bursary Fund to assist with the costs associated with staying in post-16 further education and Access to Work funding to support apprentices who are disabled or have a physical or mental health condition.</p><p>In March 2018, the government published its vision for AP, including a plan for improving the support it offers to young people. We will continue to engage with AP and post-16 providers to identify and share new ways of helping young people make the transition into post-16 settings and adult life. We have commissioned primary research into the recent experiences of children, schools, AP and post-16 providers regarding this transition. We are also in the process of assessing bids from organisations who have applied to the AP Innovation Fund to design and test new approaches to improve outcomes for young people leaving AP at age 16.</p><p> </p>
