Guidance on 16 to 18 minimum standards

19 December 2017

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has published a document setting out the minimum standard measure applied to all schools and colleges for 16 to 18 year-olds to 2017. 

The document describes how the DfE is applying 16 to 18 minimum standards to the performance of schools and colleges in the 2016/17 academic year. By establishing separate measures for performance in Level 3 academic, applied general and T Level qualifications, the department says it can compare like with like to give a clear picture of how institutions are performing in different areas of their Level 3 provision.
