Consultation description

This consultation sets out detailed proposals for using new outcome based measures of performance for publicly funded post-19 education and skills, excluding higher education. It builds on the findings of our earlier consultation published in August 2014.

The consultation looks at:

  • using the measures for accountability and intervention as part of the minimum standards framework
  • how local enterprise partnerships (LEPs) and local authorities can use the new measures as part of local outcome agreements with providers
  • how we might best present and publish the measures to help learners, employers, LEPs and providers

A new set of experimental data on these measures is published alongside this consultation.
