New data on the provision for 16-19 year olds in Warwickshire

The Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) has started to release a series of reports on the supply and demand for 16-19 year olds’ provision in Warwickshire.

The first report, Understanding the Learning Landscape, includes an overview of programmes being delivered for residents, an assessment of travel to learn patterns and an analysis of the nature of provision accessed by learners with learning difficulties and / or disabilities.

Secondly, the Residency Report contains data tables describing key information for FE and school sixth forms at local authority level with appropriate regional and national comparators including learner data (i.e. demographics) and learning aims data (i.e. curriculum mix).

Further reports are due in May (attainment and progression) and June (participation of young people).  For more information see the YPLA website.

Footnote: the YPLA (based in Coventry) was established by the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009. It replaced part of the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) on 1 April 2010. The other part of the LSC became the Skills Funding Agency. The YPLA concentrates on people of ages 16-19, and provides the funding to further education and sixth form colleges in England.
