The Statutory Guidance: Arrangements for 16-19 Funding of Education and Training sets out how local authorities, working with schools, colleges and other providers, will fulfill their statutory duties by championing the education and training needs of young people in their area.

The YPLA is supporting local authorities and providers in their respective roles through the provision of overview reports on supply and demand for 16-19 year olds’ provision. The reports are short, concise narrative reports, with high-level commentary and appropriate regional and national comparators. The YPLA also provides local authorities with 16-19 Residency Reports, describing key information for further education (FE) and school sixth forms at local authority level with appropriate regional and national comparators within data tables.

These are released on our internet at three points in the year, each covering a different theme. The reports will be made available from this page at the following points in the business cycle:
