Seeking advice from admin tutors etc

What do you think of the new core Maths qualifications?
Should we teaching these at FE?
If a student applied for a course that required GCSE B, but they had GCSE C and core Maths would you consider them.
It would be teamed with something like a L3 BTEC
Should I put together a course and put it in the prospectus for next year?

I was hoping ds's college would offer it - he hasn't done any maths since Y11 (got a B) and is hopefully going off to do a BSc next year. A post 16 qualification without having to do AS/A2 would have been perfect.

Our FE college is struggling however trying to cope with all the GCSE retakes so in terms of timetabling it would be a logistical nightmare - not to mention the dearth in maths teachers.

Yep eat GCSE retakes are crippling us and demotivating the learners. Used to be ok with functional skills. Most grade D & E learners realise their is an issue with requiring everyone to be average and are resigned to failing again.
But we also have lots like your son
