1 December 2011 D ATA A DVISORY G ROUP
Local Authorities have a responsibility to ensure suitable education & training to meet the needs of year olds with Learning Difficulties and/or Disabilities To date there has been no systematic method of predicting levels of demand which means planning for this group is challenging
Using “PLASC” data across multiple years as primary source Linked to attainment where available Focussing only on SEN stages where Primary Need is returned: School Action Plus and Statemented for Post-16 Projections Using historical data to identify how volumes of SEN learners are changing over time Identifying whether there are specific trends for particular Primary Needs
Develop an interactive forecast model which allows users to drill through London level data to individual LAs Potentially allow the user to adjust certain variables Output a series of graphical analyses and overall “dashboard” reports, including visualisations. For example:
Are you more interested in LLDD resident in your LA or LLDD in your schools? What are they key questions on LLDD you have? o How many there are post-16 now? o How many there will be in the future? o What their type of needs are? Would you envisage any problems with either Census data before a certain time in your LA or with focussing on School Action Plus and Statemented Learners? What variables should be used in modelling future demand? Should other data sources be included (eg: ILR, Connexions) to help understand supply? What time horizon would be most appropriate?
