Championing Young Peoples Learning What is the Strategic Analysis? Statistical basis for planning and commissioning education and training for young Londoners. Informed guide on the education, training and employment landscape for young people in London. Directly supports the commissioning process as set-out in the NCF. It should trigger further lines of enquiry and be used in conjunction with other data resources such as the YPLA National Core Dataset and MIDAS.
