This is the government’s response to the consultation showing the main findings and outlining the next steps to be taken to develop the measures. We have published new experimental earnings data alongside this government response.

Consultation description

This consultation sets out proposals for developing and using a new set of outcome based measures of performance for publicly funded post-19 education and skills, excluding higher education.

These measures focus on 3 areas:

  • learner destinations (into employment or further learning)
  • progression within learning
  • earnings

They will be used alongside existing measures of achievement to inform learner and employer choice, and ultimately as part of government’s performance management of the post-19 education and skills sector.

The first set of experimental data on these measures at provider level is published alongside this consultation.
