Slide 3 © Crown copyright 2008 Study Plus key features (1) Study Plus is a 5–6 term programme that is timetabled during the school day for at least two lessons a week – typically pupils opt for it as part of the schools option programme. Study Plus is planned as a sequence of around 20 English or mathematics units or a mixture of the two – each unit lasting 3–4 weeks.
Slide 4 © Crown copyright 2008 Study Plus key features (2) Teaching in each unit is focused by a cluster of curricular targets that have been identified as relevant to the group and individuals by using the English and mathematics progression maps. There is support for the Study Plus teacher through training and materials.

In June 2008 schools predicted that of these pupils: 52% would gain GCSE grade C or better in English 44% would gain GCSE grade C or better in mathematics 29% would gain 5 GCSEs A*–C including English and mathematics.
