‘Climbing the Alps with Alis the Panda’ : Understanding Post 16 Judgements, Performance Measures and Data

Course code: 
The reintroduction of a separate grade for the effectiveness of Post 16 provision, the radical changes to the Post 16 OfSTED schedule and the complete restructuring of the Post 16 accountability measures represent a whole new approach to how Post 16 performance is judged. The impact of Post 16 performance on the overall effectiveness of a school is stronger than ever. This course looks at the ever-increasing myriad of Post 16 data sets in the context of the new accountability measures and the advent of the Common Inspection Framework. We will look at the new RaiseOnline Post 16 Panda and show how you can demonstrate clear awareness of your institution’s strengths and its areas for development.

Who should attend?

This course will be of real and sustained benefit to Heads of Sixth Form, school and college Senior Leaders, Post 16 and Standards Governors, as well as all Post 16 Subject Leaders, Subject Teachers and Tutors.
