In partnership with the Progression Trust and Asdan, the Centre for Education Studies (CES) and the Centre for Education and Industry (CEI) are conducting research into the prevalence of Mathematics Anxiety among apprentices across Coventry and Warwickshire.

By surveying existing apprentices, the researchers are exploring the extent to which STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and non-STEM apprentices are affected by mathematics anxiety, the extent to which mathematics anxiety affects choice of apprenticeship, and to what extent STEM and non-STEM apprentices are mathematically resilient.
