  31. New Policy Direction • develop a fairer and more responsible society • reduce bureaucracy • improve schools and colleges by freeing them from unnecessary controls and regulation • strengthen local accountability for improvement • move away from a target setting regime • reduce public expenditure but not at the cost of frontline services • reduce the number and size of quangos • close Government Offices and RDAs • develop the concept of the "Big Society" with the intentions of maximising resources and assets of each local area in supporting improvement Championing Young People’s Learning

  32. On schools • Coalition Agreement • Fund a significant premium for disadvantaged pupils from outside the schools budget • Simplify the regulation of standards in education and target inspection on areas of failure. • Reform league tables so that schools are able to focus on, and demonstrate, the progress of children of all abilities. • For the most vulnerable children: improve diagnostic assessment for schoolchildren, prevent the unnecessary closure of special schools, and remove the bias towards inclusion. • Keep external assessment, but will review how Key Stage 2 tests operate in future. • Education and Children’s Bill • To give all schools greater freedom over the curriculum • To improve school accountability • To take action to tackle bureaucracy • To improve behaviour in schools Championing Young People’s Learning

  33. On Schools(2) • Academies and Free Schools • Retain current academies programme • Outstanding schools are pre-approved. • Outstanding special schools eligible from September 2011. • Other schools will be able to apply later in the year. • Monthly conversions from September until April 2011, then termly. • First Free Schools announced – 16 Championing Young People’s Learning

  34. On Further Education • Coalition Agreement • Improve the quality of vocational education, including increasing flexibility for 14–19 year olds and creating new Technical Academies as part of our plans to diversify schools provision. • Seek ways to support the creation of apprenticeships,internships, work pairings, and college and workplace training places as part of our wider programme to get Britain working. • Set colleges free from direct state control and abolish many of the further education quangos. Public funding should be fair and follow the choices of students. • Schools and colleges to decide how many and which Diplomas to offer – no longer a statutory requirement. Championing Young People’s Learning

  35. On local authorities • “Strong local authorities are central to our plans to improve education… • I want to work in partnership with LAs to drive up standards for all children • in all schools” Michael Gove in his letter to LA Chief Executives • Champions of educational excellence empowered to drive improvement • Shape the vision for their local area • Work with schools to drive up standards – individually and collaboratively • Include 16-19 provision in wider education vision for the area • Oversee admissions ‘place planning’ and pupil exclusion • Securing provision for those with SEN/LLDD Championing Young People’s Learning

  36. On the YPLA • The YPLA will champion young people by: • providing financial support to young learners • funding & performance management of Academies for all their provision • supporting local authorities’ commissioning of suitable education and training opportunities for all 16-19 year olds to include the direct funding of providers. • NDPB Bill - Autumn Championing Young People’s Learning

  37. DfE Press Release 20th July • The new measures will simplify the system by: • freeing up local authorities to focus on their strategic role in 16-19 education – no change to statutory duties. • scrapping the need for local authorities to set up ‘sub-regional groups’ and ‘regional planning groups’. • paying further education colleges, sixth form colleges and other training providers direct from the YPLA, the change coming in from August. Championing Young People’s Learning

  38. Funding • The key changes to the system include: • There will be a lagged” basis for funding - by setting the 2011/12 core allocation budgets based on the equivalent of lagged pupil numbers. • There are no longer plans to introduce in-year funding adjustments. • There will be some form of in-year contract adjustments for independent providers. • There is no in-year or end-year adjustment for other providers. Championing Young People’s Learning

  39. Contracting • From Aug 2010, the YPLA will directly fund provision for: • Young people aged 16-19, and 19-25 subject to learning difficulty assessment, in FE and sixth form colleges (and HEIs and fEIs), IPPs and ISPs • Young people aged 10-18 in young offender institutions • Learners in open Academies and, • Continue to fund LAs for LA maintained school sixth forms and other non formula funded provision (e.g. Education Business Partnerships and Young Apprenticeships). • NB: Payments for Apprenticeships will continue to be made by the SFA. • For the academic year ‘10/11, allocations to providers were agreed earlier this year. • The YPLA has issued summary Letters of Intent to providers (and LAs for school sixth forms and non formula funded activity) covering the academic year 2010/11 allocations. Full funding agreements will be in place by the end of October. • The YPLA will monitor the financial health of colleges and providers and gain assurance on colleges’ and providers’ use of public funds. Championing Young People’s Learning

  40. What isn’t changing • LAs retain strategic commission and influencing role – identifying gaps, enabling new provisions and developing the markets. • LAs have a crucial role in securing provision for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. • The YPLA will continue to provide funds to LAs to pass on to maintained school sixth forms. • Funding will continue to transfer from DfE to BIS for funding 16-18 Apprenticeships. • The SFA will continue to fund Apprenticeships providers.
