Post 16 Employment
Spring 2014 Release Post 16 Employment Additional Information panel of Focus | Student | Student Details for Year 12 and 13 students New table provided with a row for each period of Post-16 Employment and columns for: Start Date, End Date, Hours and Notes
Post 16 Employment Extract from rpa/a /raising-particip-age rpa/a /raising-particip-age “Full-time work is defined as a job lasting a period of 8 or more weeks consecutively and for 20 or more hours per week. Part-time accredited training is defined as a minimum of 280 guided learning hours per year, which is the equivalent to one day per week but doesn’t necessarily have to be taken that way – it could be distance or evening learning for example. It is important to note that these definitions are only relevant for young people who choose to meet the requirement to participate through full-time work combined with part-time study. Where jobs do not meet the definition – such as part-time, holiday or weekend work – this can continue as now, but young people will need to participate in education or training in line with one of the other options above.”

QWS QAN and AO QAN Codes
QWS QAN / Discount Codes Discount Code Amendments Please note the following excerpt from the Latest News section of the DfE QWS websiteDfE QWS website In advance of the 2014 census the department has carried out a quality review of discount codes on QWS and have found that there are some QANs for which discount codes need to be amended. A list of these QANs is at the end of this bulletin. We are sorry that amending these QANs will cause extra work for some schools, but we hope that these amendments will make the return of data in the autumn more straightforward. This does not affect any other QANs on QWS. We would like to make it clear that this exercise is entirely separate from the advice of 31 March below. The QANs whose Discount Codes have been amended in the current exercise are listed here: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , x, X, M
