Author: Chris Harrison

Extract: Several studies have documented students’ lack of interest, motivation and uptake in learning science.

ASE: Post-16 science and FE

Issue: September 2016 265

Author: Helen Roberts

Extract: In July we heard that responsibility for the FE and Skills sector will soon come under the remit of the Department for Education (DfE).

Issue: September 2016 265

Author: Paul Denley
