Study Programmes for 16-19 year olds are starting in September this year and you need to be ready. This presentation was used in a workshop at Insight 2013 to give delegates the chance to compare their organisation’s preparations with others and to share good practice.

    • DfE Event – Study programmes for 16-19 year olds Quality and Inspection Karen Adriaanse HMI/Christine Dick HMI: Learning and Skills Dates: 5; 14; 19; 28 February 2013
    • Presentation outline  Setting the context  Ofsted’s expectations  Inspecting 16-19 study programmes
    • Setting the context
    • Setting the context: new framework changes  Outstanding overall effectiveness, normally only where teaching, learning and assessment are outstanding  A new judgement of ‘requires improvement’  Earlier re-inspection of providers judged as ‘requires improvement’  The number of times a provider can be judged as ‘requires improvement’ for overall effectiveness is limited  Reduced notice period for inspections  Stronger focus on performance management, at all levels, linked to outcomes for learners
    • The Common Inspection Framework Overall effectiveness The judgement on overall effectiveness is based on how effective and efficient the provider is in meeting the needs of learners and other users, and why. Inspectors will use all the available evidence and take into account judgements on:  outcomes for learners  the quality of teaching, learning and assessment  the effectiveness of leadership and management.
    • Setting the context: new framework changes  Greater emphasis on teaching learning and assessment  Stronger focus on the wider impact of provision in outcomes of learners  Meeting local needs and accountability are a clear feature of leadership and management
    • The Common Inspection Framework Outcomes for learners Inspectors will make a judgement on outcomes for learners by evaluating the extent to which:  all learners achieve and make progress relative to their starting points and learning goals  achievement gaps are narrowing between different groups of learners  learners develop personal, social and employability skills  learners progress to courses leading to higher-level qualifications and into jobs that meet local and national needs
    • Success Factors: identifying a ‘road map’?
    • Recruitment to 16-19 programmes: success factors  High quality initial advice and guidance about options and progression routes  Guidance based on a clear understanding of opportunities and provision across the locality – to develop a ‘road map’  Follow up guidance to inform and support progression
    • Ensuring learners are on the right route  Full Study Programme or condensed Traineeship?  Need for very clear initial assessment: starting points, learning needs, potential to achieve relevant outcomes  Early identification of learners ‘at risk’, appropriate, accessible and effective follow-up support  Clear procedures to support individuals who change their plans
    • Ofsted’s expectations
    • Ofsted’s expectations  Offer: learners’ progress to a level higher than prior attainment with breadth, depth and substantial qualification outcome;  Content: relevant to learners’ planned next step  English and mathematic: opportunities to work towards grade C or above;  Leadership: identified leadership and accountability for the quality of provision and outcomes Considerations
    • Inspecting 16- to 19 Study programmes
    • Inspecting 16-19 study programmes (1)  not inspect the study programmes as a stand alone event; although this may form part of a wider survey programme in the future;  always inspect provision for 16- to 19-year-olds – if offered.  report on study programmes wherever they are inspected Ofsted will -
    • Inspecting 16-19 study programmes (2)  use the learning and skills handbook (Sept 12) and the common inspection framework as the basis for all judgements;  ensure that inspection processes are comparable with school inspections – for 16- to 19-year-olds;  use all available data and information including that found in published performance tables. Ofsted will -
    • Inspecting 16-19 study programmes (3) Outcomes for learners Ofsted will consider:  qualification outcomes and the value added non- qualification development, such as employability skills;  the success of further study post-16 in English and mathematics.  the relevance of learning to support the learners’ planned next step
    • Inspecting 16-19 study programmes (4) Teaching, learning and assessment Ofsted will consider:  the quality of teaching, learning and assessment, including: the monitoring, review and achievement of challenging targets set;  securing opportunities to contextualise learning and ensuring the relevance and validity of opportunities for practical application of skills;  the effectiveness of arrangements to secure well-managed individual programmes  opportunities for learners to make a real contribution in the workplace as they develop their skills  the clarity and impact of communication links between education and work-place settings to ensure every learner achieves their potential
    • Inspecting 16-19 study programmes (5) Leadership and management Providers will need to consider:  strategies to engage employers and promote the value- added by engaging in the provision  staff skills and expertise, identifying staff training needs;  the potential for partnership working with other providers to enhance learning;  the identification of appropriate alternative English and mathematics qualifications to support the transition to GCSE over a longer period of time.
