Measuring Determinants of Post-Compulsory Participation in Science

Homer (2014) researched post-compulsory participation in science and science related subjects in light of recent policy developments.  The researchers believe that the ‘lower status’ applied science results will be removed for 14-16 year olds and students will be strongly encouraged to study for the Triple Award.  This will have an impact on provision at Derby College, which the science team need to intently consider and adapt their provision and probably marketing strategy for.
