The County Council currently commissions Chichester College Group (CCG) and Greater Brighton Metropolitan College (GBMet) to deliver education provision for learners aged 14-16 whose needs are deemed better met by a more vocational curriculum.
Building on the success to date of this service in delivering improved outcomes for these learners, such that 88% of leavers are either attending college/other education or are in apprenticeships or employment, it is proposed to continue commissioning CCG and GBMet to offer this provision for a further 2 years.
(1)The Director of Education and Skills has approved the award of two 2 year contracts for the delivery of Alternative Provision for 14-16 year old learners to Chichester College Group and to Greater Brighton Metropolitan College both commencing in September 2021.
