My colleagues, Robert Hodgson and Rachel MacHutchon, gave me a flier today outlining the work they have been doing on i-Leeds...

i-Leedsis the Leeds electronic Individual Learning Plan. It's a web-based tool that facilitates conversations between young people aged 9 to 19 and their key adults, helping to support the young person to identify, express and achieve their goals. i- Leeds has been developed with partners across the city building on national best practice around personalised learning and the 'Every Child Matters' agenda.

Robert and Rachel tell me that i-Leeds will help;
  • reduce learning loss during transfer and transition;
  • signpost to providers of information, advice and guidance;
  • increase participation and reduce the number of young people not in education, employment or training;
  • provide a communications tool for all extended services;
  • support mentoring and coaching approaches;
  • support tracking of learners attending work-based learning and Diplomas;
  • improve etention, progression and achievement.
If you are interested in using i-Leeds or would like to book a demonstration please contact Rachel at
