Financial Assurance: Monitoring post-16 funding for 2021 to 2022



A message from the post-16 monitoring team:

We have published the post-16 monitoring plan for 2021 to 2022. Following user feedback, we have combined the monitoring plan and our reports dashboard user guide into a single piece of guidance in HTML format. This means you can now find all the information on each report in a single space; it also means that you do not have to wait until we release the R04 reports in December to see the relevant guidance.

While the first dataset for the year will be published after R04 (December), this year we will also publish School Census data within the monitoring dashboard in the following spring, enabling a comprehensive in-year analysis of young peoples’ funding for the first time. We are developing a support offer for providers that submit the School Census and have not previously been directly engaged by monitoring and will communicate this in the autumn.

Thanks for the early publication of this, that's really useful.

I have some concerns about the schools data though. A learner who leaves school on 8 October can't be reported as a withdrawal until the 16 Feb census return, which I'm assuming won't be reflect in this data until R08 (R07 at a squeeze?), so it feels like we're going to have a *lot* of false positives for all the kids who decide (within 6 weeks) that school isn't for them and they want to go to a different provider for quite a long time...
