Teaching without Limits - the current situation in our colleges, schools and early years centres

We have published six reports entitled Teaching without Limits to support our call for schools to sign up to our Manifesto for Change. They discuss the issue of inequity in physics and the education sector, look at how whole school change can be implemented, and contain statistics and lived experiences from young people and the physics community. We cover each of the nations and each stage of school: early years, primary and secondary.

While writing the reports, it became clear there are issues in comparing data across Source: JCQ, GCE A Level Results Summer 2019 (Wales only) the UK and Ireland. All nations track the gender-split of subjects, but only England provides further breakdowns by ethnic group, special educational needs and disadvantage (free school meals). So as well as lobbying governments on the ten points in our manifesto, we will also call for better data collection and access to that data, so inequities can be better understood and tracked.
