Surrey County Council has a statutory requirement to ensure that all students in Year 11 have had an offer of education or training post 16, normally referred to as the September guarantee.
In recent years we have achieved this through the annual 'What Next' forms and school support to get these completed. Increasingly, feedback from schools was that this was becoming an onerous exercise and repeating something that schools had already done.
Acting on this feedback we will approach schools for the information they have on what their Year 11 students intend to do post Year 11 in a format that does not require duplication.
Schools will be approached over the next two weeks requesting this information either by email or direct through the Youth Support Service education leads.
As ever we are extremely grateful to schools for their support with this important piece of work.
For any queries or additional information please contact Mike Williams.
