14-19 Progress Checks and Reform

The 14-19 Education and Skills White Paper, published in February 2005, set out proposals for transforming education for 14-19 year olds. The Implementation Plan which was published in December 2005 clarified how the policy proposals in the White Paper would be delivered.

The changes to the curriculum and qualifications and the delivery arrangements for 14-19 education and training are very significant. Local Authorities, local Learning and Skills Councils (LSCs), schools, colleges and training providers will all be accountable for their contributions to delivery. In support of this Ministers have agreed that there is a need for a co-ordinated system to measure the progress of all areas of the country in implementing the reforms.

DfES has produced guidance which sets out the roles of Government Offices, LSCs and Local Authorities in conducting a Progress Checks. Through this self assessment process we can to measure the progress being made in every Local Authority area in delivering the reform programme.

Round One of these Progress Checks has been completed in the Yorkshire and The Humber setting a useful baseline of information. Progress Checks will be updated at regular intervals, typically to coincide with the Local Authority Annual Performance Assessment Cycle and Government Office led Priorities Meetings.
