Arrangements for Alternative Provision for Key Stage 4 Learners

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.
