A guide to the alternative provision census 2013 for local authorities and providers of alternative provision.
This document is for use by local authorities and providers of alternative provision, so that relevant staff:
- understand the rationale behind and purpose of the alternative provision census
- are able to populate their systems with the required data
- are able to keep their data updated during the year
- are able to complete the alternative provision census 2013 return
This document should be used as a handbook for data collected and stored both by providers and by local authorities throughout the year, rather than just as guidance on census day.
The alternative provision census 2013 business and technical specification is also available.
