1 Children s Trust Board - 27 January year olds Not in Education, Employment and Training (NEET) 2.1 Background - understanding NEET data The Department for Education (DfE) measure performance using data published annually in the Statistical First Release (SFR) Participation in Education, Training and Employment by Year Olds in England. This is the definitive source for NEET figures. This data is only available annually, and cannot be disaggregated at local authority level. Connexions Service administer data via its Client Caseload Information System (CCIS) which allows measurement at local level and more detailed breakdowns of the NEET group to be made. Clients are currently tracked and destinations recorded according to a DfE CCIS specification. NEET performance is historically measured by Government using a three month average calculation of NEET CCIS data (November to January). The reason for this is that this provides a more reliable period for comparison. The CCIS database is managed according to a DCSF specification where young people enter the NEET count en-block at 16 years (in September) and young people leave the count on becoming 19 years of age. The specification also requires that adjustment to the NEET data are made where young people are not known i.e. no contact has been made within specified follow-up periods. All data provided is generated from CCIS. 2.2 Current Data on NEET in Kirklees 9.7 in 2006 (November 2006 to January 2007) 8.8 in 2007 (November 2007 to January 2008) 9.7 in 2008 (November 2008 to January 2009) 9.4 in 2009 (November 2009 to January 2010) NEET Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sept Oct Nov Dec in 2010 (December) N.B. Awaiting January figure to calculate the 3 month average. 2.3 Recent priority actions in 2010 A high level partnership NEET Summit Meeting held March 2010 to examine our NEET approach A NEET Assembly in September 2010 led by Council Chief Executive and the Kirklees Partnership Executive Working in partnership with post-16 commissioners of learning provision and with Kirklees College to provide suitable opportunities for those who are NEET including ESF Engage programme, Foundation Learning, and College flexible and January starts

2 Post 16 commissioning and The Local Area Statement of Need reflecting NEET as a priority and growth funding used to target NEET Meeting the September Guarantee and January Guarantee offering a suitable place in post 16 education or training to all 16 year olds and 17 year olds. Working with schools to share destination data and promote the take up of the local Careers Education Information and Guidance Standard quality mark Early school prevention and vulnerability identification and support Targeted Personal Adviser support to high NEET localities: o Working to improve transitions from Pupil Referral Units/Key Stage 4 units. o Working with Colleges and training providers to reduce drop-out through sharing of data and intelligence. o Improving 18 year old progression into New Deal and Future Jobs Fund opportunities. o Engagement of the voluntary sector through V6 (a consortium of voluntary sector providers). 2.4 NEET Breakfast Summit Pledges and Outcomes See Annex 1 (NEET Breakfast Summit Pledges) To evaluate our performance and ensure that pledges are having an impact, we will ask partners to provide an update in about six months time. The following school follow-up/dissemination approach has been agreed and incorporated into our NEET Strategy Action Plan. Following on from the NEET Summit Event, schools are being asked to provide a response to the following 5 key areas: o They have identified a clear strategic lead in the school on NEET with the authority to allocate resources where necessary; o Schools make an institutional commitment to reducing NEET/improving post-16 transition and set themselves targets for improvement; o Schools ensure they have appropriate early intervention strategies in place to prevent young people being NEET o Schools use personalised curriculum and pathways appropriately using funding available to support these developments (link to first bullet above) e.g. Pupil Premium and Practical and Applied Learning funding streams o Progression routes post-16 are planned and young people are supported through the process of transition to their destination. Promotion of the local careers education, information and advice (CEIAG) quality standard with secondary schools (and colleges and work based learning providers) to quality assure and improve services offered to young people 2.5 Future Strategy (i) Working to address challenges brought about by reductions in Connexions area based grant funding There has been a reduction to date of 17 personal adviser posts, lost from the Kirklees Young Peoples Services, Youth Offending Team and from voluntary sector

3 providers. Calderdale and Kirklees Careers are also having to review structures as a result of efficiency saving to their contract. This inevitably will impact on the levels of support provided to young people. We are now working to prioritise support where we think maximum impact will be achieved. All caseloads have now transferred to personal advisers employed by Calderdale and Kirklees Careers. (ii) Working to address challenges brought about by coalition government changes to information, advice and guidance services An new All Age Careers Service will be developed (some aspects by September 2011 and fully operational by 2012). The All Age service will combine both young people Connexions services and the current adult service (Next Step service). This will be commissioned nationally and regionally with a national web resource but also a local service providing face to face advice. The Education Bill (January 2011) will place a duty on schools to provide impartial and independent careers advice The Local Authority will have a duty to encourage, enable and assist young people to participate in learning by offering targeted support for vulnerable young people. From April 2012 there will no longer be a Local Authority need to provide careers guidance for all young people. We are now starting to consult partners regarding the shape of future services from April 2012 (iii) Effect of Raising Participation Age (RPA) Legislation A new Cabinet Office website on transparency will be using data from NCCIS to monitor o Participation in education, training and employment by year olds in England, by local authority and o Young people not in employment, education or training Information from CCIS is the only source of robust data on NEET and young person s progression and will be used in future to make schools colleges and training providers more accountable for what happens to young people after they leave. One recommendation from government is that we move to reporting those who have reached statutory school leaving age by where they are resident rather than where educated. This will bring us in line with the legislation in place for raising the participation age where local authorities are responsible for ensuring young people resident in their area are indeed participating, again we expect this information will be collected through CCIS systems. This change will impact detrimentally on calculating NEET percentages in the future in Kirklees because we are a net importer of students in post-16 provision (which boosts cohort numbers when calculating NEET). In future, DfE will be looking more at a participation rates rather than nonparticipation as we prepare for RPA. Future focus on Participation Strategy and Plan (RPA Event planned for 2 March 2011). Steve Collins, CT Board Member, Head of Operations Calderdale and Kirklees Careers Graham Crossley, Commissioning and Contracts Manager, Children s Service

4 Strategic Executive/Director Leads Adrian Lythgo (Kirklees Council) Develop clear links between NEET and council wide apprenticeship scheme and link from there to wider public and private sector apprenticeships.

Sandra Burnhill (Kirklees College) Improved systems at the college for tracking learners who arrived late at the college in August and improved links to the learner success role.

Lee Morritt (Castle Hall School) To maintain our commitment to high quality teaching and learning as the number 1 priority to ensure students progress and achieve to a level beyond their expectations and aspirations.

Catherine Ladd (Calderdale and Kirklees Careers) Continue to work with NEET young people in Centre and potential NEETs in school to raise aspiration and encourage participation and ensure all non-targeted young people have access to advice and guidance and build up a good relationship in case things go wrong later.
