Work package 1
1. Evidence syntheses of the following:
a) Chronological mapping of mathematics education policy interventions in England.
b) Trend impact analysis and interpretation of policy, trajectories and system changes relating to mathematics education to extrapolate from historical policy trajectories to inform the future.
2. Expert views based on virtual interviews and workshops.
3. Drawing of implications for and from mathematics education policy and practice.
Work package 2
1. Horizon scanning of key international mathematics education practices and developments and to identify potentially important future developments.
2. Expert views based on survey, virtual interviews, and workshops.
3. Drawing of implications for and from mathematics education policy and practice.

This Service is part 3 of 3 projects: Mathematics education in the future: Landscaping mathematics education policy
a) This project is an evidence synthesis which aims to bring together information from a range of sources to provide an accurate, concise synthesis of national education policy patterns and approaches to enacting change and impact in education over the past few decades (e.g. since the emergence of GCSEs in England).
b) The project uses horizon scanning techniques and aims to identify key mega-trends in mathematics education policy in international jurisdictions and to consider the opportunities and threats to achieving the vision based on understanding of educational change.
c) The project aims to inform scenario planning in Project 2 (ITT 537-2) which is also out for tender on contracts finder.
d) The project aims to draw implications for future policy planning and realising the MFP ambitions.
