Part 1: National context


“The fundamental aim of the 14-19 reforms is to ensure that all young people are prepared for success in life through their education
and training. We want to dramatically increase participation and achievement among young people….By 2015 we want all young
people up to the age of 18 to be participating in learning that will provide a recognised qualification preparing them for life and work..”
                                                                                                                         DCSF July 2007


The Government’s reform programme for 14-19 education includes a range of new learning routes, including

          o   delivery of all 17 new Diplomas by 2013
          o   a Foundation Learning Tier of qualifications
          o   new Functional Skills embedded throughout the system
          o   reformed GCSEs and A Levels
          o   more Apprenticeships and new provision for part-time learning/part-time employment
          o   wider availability of the International Baccalaureate

The reforms will be underpinned by a new Learning Entitlement from 2013 ensuring all young people can access these pathways and
succeed.

Government guidance identifies that delivering the new reforms will require new ways of working:
           1) wholly new levels of area-wide partnership working
           2) the engagement of employers and others
           3) area-wide solutions to delivering all pathways to high-quality standards
           4) strengthened impartial information, advice and guidance for students
           5) a new and sustained focus on the necessary leadership and professional development required to deliver all of the
               above


Key reform developments include:

   Further Education: Raising Skills, Improving Life Chances (2006) aims at achieving 100% participation by young people in full-
    time education, or employment with part-time education and training, up to 17 from 2013 and 18 from 2015.

D:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\5dc665a9-d215-4f1e-a714-ff0c35b9f2d1.doc
 Post-16 Success measures (current Dcsf consultation paper) highlights the importance of schools taking responsibility and
  accountability for the post-16 progression and achievements of their students once they leave school.
 This with the new National IAG standards effective from April 2008, will require schools to be fully cognisant of all 14-19 progression
  pathways and provision, to deliver IAG based on such knowledge and to be pro-active in improving all 14-19 provision, opportunities
  and achievement.
 Re-routing all 16-19 funding for schools, colleges and other providers via Local Authorities, although the position of Modern
  Apprenticeships is not known at this stage.
 The Government’s response to the Leitch report, including the move to demand-led post-19 provision via expansion of Train to
  Gain and Learner Accounts. This will also impact on 14-19 provision.

To prepare for all of the above, the Government has issued guidance for Local Authorities to work in partnership with local Learning and
Skills Councils and other partners in preparing a local 14-19 Education Plan, as an integral element of the statutory Children and Young
People’s Strategic Plan, which will shape the commissioning of education provision and services for all 14-19 year olds in the local area.
Guidance on developing the Plan has recently been issued by DCSF, ADCS and LSC. Local areas are required to start developing this
plan by agreeing a Partnership-wide 14-19 Education Strategy, by December 2007.

This draft Strategy outlines how Newham will build on existing activity and excellence in 14-19 reforms, identifying some preliminary
draft priorities and the next steps required to develop an Education Plan which will deliver to key performance measures, ensuring
that all partners are fully engaged in its development.

Part 2: The Newham context


Our vision is that:
‘All young people are enabled to achieve the skills and qualifications they need to successfully compete and succeed in the changing
worlds of higher education, training and employment, contributing to the goal that Newham should be a place in which people succeed
and choose to live and work.’
                                                                                    from Report to Newham 14-19 Partnership Board report


‘We will achieve a single overview of 14-19 provision, achievement, progression and outcomes by which to measure key 14-19 and
economic wellbeing outcomes, set new targets and develop new provision to achieve national and local entitlements.
                                                                                  Newham Children and Young People’s Plan Priority 11

                                                                                                                                        :


Newham is in the vanguard of local authorities in the development of 14-19 reforms, and has already established effective partnership
working between a wide range of partner organisations, services and groups. Full details of the Newham 14-19 Partnership
arrangements and planning are at Appendix A.

Newham schools, colleges, other providers and services have achieved nationally-respected reputations for their achievements. They
have progressively closed the gaps between local and national measures of the achievement and successes of young people, in some
areas even outstripping national average performance.

However there remain major challenges in achieving the next step-changes in achievement, in closing the remaining gaps and in
delivering the full range of 14-19 reforms identified by the Government and Newham vision for 14-19 and Economic Wellbeing. The
detailed 14-19 Work Plan, which will be developed from this document, will outline how Newham intends to identify and tackle its
priorities for the next five years, using analysis of needs through shared management information, and through building on existing
excellent delivery and partnership working.

It will reflect and complement:
 Every Child Matters outcomes (particularly Enjoy and Achieve, Make a Positive Contribution, and Developing Economic Wellbeing)
 Newham Children and Young People’s Plan (Reviewed 2007)
 The emerging Newham Plan for Integrated Youth Support services
 The 14-19 Raising Participation / NEET Strategy
 The Newham Employment Strategy
 Newham’s Building Schools for the Future vision and plans
 LSC Statement of Priorities: November 2007


Part 3: Needs analysis and proposed draft priorities

A chart showing existing national and local Key Performance Indicators is shown at Appendix B. The local indicators were set by the
Newham Partnership Board in Summer 2006.

A major piece of work is currently under way to develop the Newham 14-19 Profile – an overview of student achievement, performance
and progression in Newham, in comparison with other London Boroughs and national averages. More collaborative work is needed to
ensure that this Profile is maintained as a fully up-to-date and accurate reflection of performance.

This draft Strategy proposes the following 10 top line priorities for further discussion agreement and action-planning by the Partnership.
These are based on and reflect local needs, management information, experience and understanding; national performance measures
and priorities, including the Every Child Matters outcomes (particularly Enjoy and Achieve, Make a Positive Contribution, and Developing
Economic Wellbeing); and the Newham Children and Young People’s Plan priorities.

Part 4: Next steps: developing a 14-19 Education Plan for Newham
Government guidance for developing local 14-19 Education Plans identifies that:

   The local 14-19 Education Plan will shape the strategic commissioning by the local authority and the Learning and Skills Council
    through the Children’s Trust for 14-16 and 16-19 education, respectively.

   The Plan should be produced by the local Strategic 14-19 Partnership under the aegis of the Children’s Trust, including the Director of
    Children’s Services, the LSC Area Director, Director of Connexions/IAG Services, heads and principals of local schools, colleges and
    training providers.


D:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\5dc665a9-d215-4f1e-a714-ff0c35b9f2d1.doc
   Views of young people should inform the plan.

The following chart offers a means by which the Partnership can assess current progress and clarify further activity required to develop
an agreed Newham 14-19 Education Plan which will provide clear pathways for future planning and partnership working. The
content/activity is defined in DCSF Guidance, however it is for the Partnership Development Group and Board to agree:

a) comment on progress so far
b) development activities required
c) which agency/ies should lead on the development activities.
d) a timescale for agreeing the plan. This is flexible, but it would be desirable to have a draft plan agreed by end March 2008 to ensure
an agreed strategic direction for the 2008/9 14-19 Workplan.

Appendix A: The Newham 14-19 Partnership

The Newham 14-19 Partnership consists of two major groupings

A partnership of schools, colleges and key local services, all with legal responsibilities for 14-19 provision, which consists of:
      o All secondary schools in Newham, including NewDirections and The Tunmarsh Centre.
      o NCFE, NewVIc and the StA/B 6th form.
      o The BCC and Landmark Training (representing a very large number of work-related and work-based training organisations).
      o The University of East London.
      o The London Borough of Newham, including its 14-19, Lifelong Learning, Economic Wellbeing, Integrated Youth Support
         Service (including Connexions), Learning & Schools and Regeneration teams.
      o The Learning and Skills Council.

A wider partnership of organisations and people, who have roles to play and/or contributions to make in ensuring our work is
successful. This includes
      o Employers, who have key roles to play and, in Newham, are keen to make extensive contributions to our work.
      o A wide-range of organisations playing key roles in the regeneration of Newham, the build-up to the 2012 Olympics and
         Paralympics.
      o A wide-range of organisations who work with young people to extend opportunities for learning, leisure and involvement in
         shaping the future of Newham.
      o Young people themselves and organisations by which young people are already able to influence what affects their lives.
      o A wide-range of people, provision and policy shapers engaged with education and training; governors, staff working in all the
         organisations mentioned above, parent groups, advocates for particular groups of young people, local councillors, etc.

Key objectives of the Partnership:
     o To use partnership-working to deliver to all young people across Newham a breadth of learning and training opportunities and
         provision, standards of quality and success well exceeding those we have so far achieved;
     o To further improve the quality, range and effectiveness of educational provision, student support and advice services across
         Newham, so that young people are better able to make positive, well-informed decisions about their future lives and achieve
         the skills and qualifications needed to achieve their aspirations;
     o To better enable all young people in Newham achieve their full potential and to maximise their life opportunities and well-being;
     o To better enable young people to be actively involved in informing and shaping the opportunities, provision and services
         available;


D:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\5dc665a9-d215-4f1e-a714-ff0c35b9f2d1.doc
      o To better identify and address the different needs of young people in Newham, thereby maximising equality of provision and of
        opportunities.

Specific objectives of the Partnership:
      o Successfully and effectively delivering the full 14-19 learning and training entitlement now unfolding nationally. This includes
          ensuring young people have access to the new 14-19 Diplomas, Functional Skills provision, Foundation Learning programmes,
          an increase in apprenticeships and ‘part-time learning / part-time employment’ opportunities as well as the full range of GCSE
          and A Level programmes currently available.
      o Providing the more personalised support systems, Information Advice and Guidance, and support services required to enable
          all young people to gain the very best advantage from all the above opportunities. This includes delivery of the new national
          IAG standards (April 2008).
      o Ensuring all the above provisions are of the highest quality and achieve their intended outcomes.
      o To build upon and extend current provision so that young people in Newham achieve levels of participation and attainment in
          learning, achievement and progression into higher education or employment which at least match, if not exceed national
          averages.

The Newham 14-19 Partnership Workplan 2007/8
 The Newham 14-19 Partnership agreed to seek, and was successful in obtaining national agreement that it could start all five of the
   new Diplomas which become available in September 2008. This also entailed six institutions piloting the new Functional Skills
   programmes from September 2007, as follows: both colleges, three schools and NewDirections.
 The Partnership currently has a work-plan of some twenty different lines of work, all essential to the successful preparation and
   delivery of the five Diplomas and the associated Functional Skills programme from September 2008.
 The Partnership is currently considering which of the next five Diplomas it will seek permission to deliver as soon as these become
   available in September 2009. By September 2013 arrangements will be in place by which all seventeen Diploma lines will be
   available to young people. The exact timing of which Diplomas will start when will be agreed year-by-year, based on consideration of
   young people’s expressed interest in different lines of learning, employment opportunities and the capacity and readiness of partners
   to successfully deliver each Diploma.
 Within the Partnership steps are underway to prepare for the successful provision of the Foundation Learning Tier across all schools
   and colleges, with effect from 2010.
 Preparation is also underway to ensure the Partnership fully meets the new national standards for provision of Information, Advice
   and Guidance, effective from April 2008.
 Partnership development and Diploma planning includes ongoing development of a range of supporting policies relating to:
              1) Area-wide curriculum modelling and common timetabling.
              2) Are-wide delivery of learning and training.

             3) Area-wide quality improvement and assurance systems.
             4) Partnership and financial arrangements.
   The speed and nature of national 14-19 reform programme developments, as well as local considerations, dictates that the Newham
    14-19 development plan, whilst detailed with regard to 2007/8, is only now beginning to outline plans for subsequent years.
   The 14-19 development plan also sits alongside and is increasingly aligning with a number of other Newham-wide plans:
    o The Integrated Youth Support Service Plan.
    o The 14-19 Raising Participation strategy (reducing the NEET group)
    o The Newham Children and Young People’s Plan.
    o The Newham Employment Strategy.
    o Newham’s BSF vision and plans
