This  Post 16 Course has been specifically designed to take into account the significant changes which will be seen in the 2019 Post 16 data releases and accountability measures containing 2018 data.

What you will learn

• How to interpret and analyse your Post 16 Inspection Data Summary Report
• How to identify gaps and trends
• How to evaluate pupil, group, subject and school performance
• How to understand the new performance measures for Post 16
• How to interpret, analyse and use the Level 3 Value Added Ready Reckoner for target setting

Course Summary

The course looks at the new KS5 Inspection Data Summary Report and offers delegates the opportunity to fully and thoroughly analyse their own data. This element of the course will focus on overall progress alongside performance at a subject level and a thorough, contextual overview of your students providing a clear basis for subsequent evaluation. During the course, we will also examine any possible gender gaps, progress according to prior attainment the performance students are achieving by different pupil characteristics. The workbook which accompanies the course lets you instantly compare your students’ performance to national figures, allowing you to identify positive trends and areas for further investigation.

In addition to the Inspection Data Summary Report overview, we look at key national statistics from the 2018 results. The course fully explains the new performance measures at Post 16 and offers guidance on how to amend your tracking and monitoring to reflect this.  We also scrutinise the various ways that subject transition matrices can be used to optimise student outcomes before taking a detailed look at the Level 3 Value Added Ready Reckoner and how it can be used for target setting.  The course closes with an examination of the most recent Ofsted Post 16 framework, with ideas on how to address the key issues for inspection through rigorous self-evaluation.

Throughout the training session, you will complete a full analysis of your Ofsted Inspection Data Summary Report (IDSR).

This ASP training course will provide you with the tools, knowledge and expertise to calculate your own pupil/subject/school Progress and Attainment quickly and easily.

You will be provided with expert guidance and support which will provide you with the knowledge you need to effectively interpret and analyse your data as well as access to our e-resources, which will enable you easy access to key documents.

This course combines interactive guidance and support on: accessing, interpreting and analysing data with a focus on the IDSR; the Level 3 ready Reckoner; New Performance Measures; Ofsted Post 16 Framework; next step actions.

This Key Stage 5 course was very helpful for Heads of Sixth Form trying to understand the new Data Dashboards. These documents are vital to effective preparation for Ofsted and, as such, this course would be a must for all Heads of Sixth Form who are not yet competent in this new version of performance measures. Very helpful indeed!
