Guidance on key stage 4 (KS4) and 16 to 18 destination measures data in the school and college performance tables for 2017.
This is for students who finished their phase of study in the 2014 to 2015 academic year. It includes:
- changes to the destination measures
- sources of the data
- how we calculate the measures
- the categories of destinations
‘Destination’ means what students went on to do after they finished their study at KS4 or at 16 to 18 – for example, staying in education or getting employed.
The destination measures provide clear and comparable information on the success of schools and colleges in helping all their students take qualifications that offer them the best opportunity to progress.
