2 6.2 What do you aim to achieve through the publication of destination measures? We have made it very clear that we want to put more information into the public domain. We believe that destination measures are an important accountability tool and we will include them as one of the headline performance measures in secondary and 16-19 accountability in 2016 if the measures are robust enough. We know that young people most in need of education and training make the least successful transitions into further learning or employment at ages 16 and 18. We believe that destination measures will: Provide clear information to parents and young people about the post-16 routes taken by an institution’s students, enabling them to make informed judgements about the performance of schools and colleges in their area. Make schools and colleges accountable for ensuring that all their students take qualifications that offer them the best opportunity to progress and receive the support needed to prepare for and take up education, employment or training which offers good long term prospects. Support the increased focus on raising the aspirations of disadvantaged students, ensuring they make a successful transition, which helps to raise post-16 participation and reduce the number not in education, employment or training. Show how effective schools and colleges are in supporting a successful transition into a sustainable course, through the provision of a range of contacts with inspiring people from the world of work and higher education, and independent careers guidance more broadly under their legal duty. 2

3 10.1 What is the relationship between destination measures and FE Choices? Is there any overlap? Why do you need two measures? FE Choices is the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) publication for the FE sector. It currently reports on the performance of institutions, including training providers, against a range of criteria, including learner destinations, for adults. BIS are changing the way they collect destination data to be more consistent with our Department for Education (DfE) approach. This means they are moving to a matched data system rather than surveys and they are looking at the same sustained participation period as DfE. The destination measures, published by the DfE, are based mainly on those institutions which are reported on through the DfE performance tables, i.e. schools and colleges. They are also age-bound – reporting the destinations of young people at KS4 and between 16 and 18. 3

4 7.6 How are young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) counted? We have two categories where young people NEET are included: If there is some participation in education or employment/training at any time during the year but it is not sustained over the required six months and there is less than 3 months NEET during the 6 month participation period then the young person will be included in the ‘destination not sustained’ line. If the young person did not remain in a destination for the required two terms and had 3 or more months NEET during the 6 month participation period then they will be included in the ‘destination not sustained/reported NEET’ line. This will also include young people who have had at least one month NEET over the year and have no other record of activity. 4

5 8.3 How will Ofsted use this information in making inspection judgements in 2014/15? Ofsted inspectors have all published information available to them. Both the Schools Framework and the Common Inspection Framework ask inspectors to consider the progression and destinations of students. Ofsted are giving careers guidance a higher priority in school inspections, examining how well leaders ensure that the curriculum provides timely independent information, advice and guidance to assist pupils on their next steps in training, education or employment when assessing the leadership and management of the school. They will continue to look at the progression and destinations of learners in all schools, academies, colleges and work-based learning providers at all levels in making judgements on outcomes for learners. including the KS4 data in RAISEonline and the KS5 data in their FE data dashboard and school sixth form PANDA As the destination measures data are still classed as experimental statistics and have a long time lag, Ofsted will look at the data alongside school, academy and colleges’ own data, in order to gain a full picture of the destinations of learners. 5

6 Sample Destinations Report – Lord Williams School – Outstanding School This sample report covers headlines but could be improved when applied in our context in several key areas (i) An overview opening narrative around the Learning Journey how schools can evidence the tracking through to post 18 linked to Careers Guidance including: Collaborative approach to sharing good practice through the ContinU Careers Group RONI System of tracking NEET risk learners – Joint ContinU NEET Prevention Plan with Early Help provided external IAG. School approaches to sustainability. Additional “Opening Doors” collaborative enrichment opportunities September transition work with partner Kidderminster College (main vocational destination) re at risk NEET commencing courses – names reviewed in November and February. September Guarantee % position in July (ii) Breakdown where applicable eg by gender (to evidence equality and diversity re progression) and FSM/PP re raising aspirations and social mobility – Russell Group re post 18? (iii) Given that as well as NEET there is “not sustained” (ie less than six months but more than 3 months Oct- March), there is potential to give further detail if known eg students may have been in a place since January but still less than 3 months so more positive. (iv) Link to School Careers Planning as part of self evaluation - messages for improvement from the content of this report (slides 2 and 5). (v) How the report will be shared with stakeholders (slide 2) 6
