This document presents an analysis of the Longitudinal Survey of Young People in England, focusing on factors which predict Higher Education and Russell Group participation in high-achieving young people. This is part of the High-Potential Learners project, which is investigating decision-making processes of high-achieving young people about their future. The project is particularly focusing on young people who are in schools and colleges where there is a range of attainment in the 6th form and many students do not go on to higher education. Professor Leon Tikly, Dr Jo Rose, and Dr Liz Washbrook are working together on the project. For more information about the project, please contact Dr Jo Rose on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Everyday Maths project, run by Dr Tim Jay, Dr Jo Rose, and Dr Ben Simmons, aims to empower parents to support their children’s maths learning. In spring and summer 2013 parents of Year 3 children completed a survey and participated in focus groups, about their confidence in supporting their children’s maths learning and their uses of maths in their everyday lives. During the 2013/14 academic year, the project will run workshops to support parents to consider the maths they use in their everyday lives, and how they might share this with their children.
