Local authorities can now access the December update to the 2018 release of 16 to 19 FE data and management information (MI) pivot tables on the Education and Skills Funding Agency’s (ESFA) Information Exchange, at the following folder location: Revenue Funding > AY 2017-18.
The purpose of the release is to update local authorities’ overview of provision. It should be noted that the data provided is not real time/live data as we do not collect this.
This release update includes full year (R14) FE data that has been collected about delivery in the 2015 to 2016, 2016 to 2017 and 2017 to 2018 academic years for ESFA funded provision for 16 to 19 year olds. It also includes full year (S05) school census data for the 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017 academic years and partial year schools data for the 2017 to 2018 academic year.
Each local authority will receive:
- a 16 to 19 Data and MI PDF report for each of the following: Further Education Colleges; Independent Learning Providers and; Higher Education Institutions that receive 16 to 19 funding from ESFA
- ILR data for FE and schools census data for learner responsive provision
- a separate ESFA funded pivot table for the local authority. This contains more data than the PDF reports and enables the local authority to conduct further analysis for their area
To accompany this release (in addition to the user guide) there is a demonstration to help local authorities make best use of the data provided in the pivot tables.
