Tomorrow representatives of the DFE and local government will be meeting to discuss the transition arrangments following the substantial cuts to Connexions. I have been working with Tony Watts to produce a paper to summarise the current situation in England’s 150 local authorities which we hope can inform this meeting and provide an evidence base for conversations.
The versions below are the current draft of the paper and the dataset that has been assembled to support it. We intend to revise the paper following tomorrows meeting and then publish this by the end of the month. I would therefore be interested in any further information or opinions that people can pass to me about the situation in their locality.
