TRACKING
NOVEMBER 2012
Ann Furminger
Head of Service Delivery
What is tracking?
• Keeping in touch with young people - ensuring that
contact and destination records are up to date
• Use this information to target support eg when a
young person drops off a course and becomes NEET
timely support can be given, or guidance can be
offered to a leaver with no September Guarantee
offer
• Ensure accurate reporting to the DFE for Activity
survey, destinations, September Guarantee, NEET
and Not Known data
Activity Survey
• Destination data for last year’s Yr 11 – 14 as at 1st
November. Reported to schools and DFE in January of
following year
• Forms part of KCC’s statutory duty – the data is returned
to the DFE who use it to produce schools’ destination
measures
• This year new system due to the reduction in CXK
resource in schools (due to Education Act changes)
• Timely collection of data is vital as there is limited time to
identify those at risk of disengaging and complete the
survey. October census data is received too late to be
included.
Leavers and Joiners
• Schools have a responsibility to inform KCC/CXK of
the details of any student leavers or joiners
• Database kept up to date eg. if yp moves out of
county or moves to other schools/educational
provision again this is recorded and informs future
tracking
• Tracking enables targeted support to follow the
young person
NEETs and Not Knowns
• CXK works with all Kent schools, colleges and
training providers to keep in touch with all young
people and offer targeted support as appropriate
• DFE has clear requirements around destinations
and tracking of those whose ‘currency has expired’
• NEET and Not Known (NK) data is reported to the
DFE and Kent has an enviable reputation for its NK
figure (Kent = 2.4%, South East = 6.9%, National
= 5.9%)

Thank You
Thank you to everyone who has supported and
continues to support the process
• KCC and CXK are currently reviewing tracking
systems, what tracking should look like and where
responsibility for tracking lies
• We would like schools to be a part of this review so
that a joined up approach can be developed with
clear lines of responsibility
