I attended the 14-19 Progress check meeting yesterday morning...

Eleanor Brazil and I attended the 14 - 19 Progress Check meeting with colleagues from schools, colleges, Integrated Youth Support, Prospects, our 14 - 19 Team, our School Improvement Team, the Director of Children's Services Unit and colleagues from the new Department for Education and Government Office. At the heart of the pprogress check we were looking at what stops us getting every young person level 2 qualifications, the equivalent of 5 good GCSEs, by the time they reach the end of their secondary years and level 3 qualifications by 19? The discussions were helpful because only by really understanding what the limiting factors are can we target resources and use everything we have available to us to really make a difference and ensure that every child and young person is happy, healthy, safe and increasingly successful.
