The year ahead
Today the Prime Minister will set out his priorities for the year ahead and ambition for a better Britain, including his goal for all school pupils in England to study some form of maths to the age of 18.
- Today around eight million adults in England have primary school-level numeracy skills, so we must do more to better equip young people with the skills they need for work and in life.
- That is why in a speech today the Prime Minister will set out his ambition to ensure all students in England study some form of maths to 18 years old, either through existing routes such as A Levels, the Core Maths qualifications, T-Levels, or through more innovative options.
- This will equip young people with the numerical skills they need for the jobs of today and the future.
