This section provides links to the most recent government policy strategies aimed at delivering and demonstrating the effectiveness of comprehensive arrangements for participation, achievement and progression:


Department for Children, Schools and Families (2008) Reducing the number of young people not in education, employment or training (NEET): The Strategy. Nottingham: DCSF Publications.

This is the government's strategy aimed at tackling disengagement and raising young people's participation and attainment; local authorities will take the lead in reducing NEET, working through their Children's Trusts, 14-19 partnerships, and with employers and the Learning and Skills Council.


Department for Children, Schools and Families (2008) Delivering 14-19 Reform: Next Steps. Nottingham: DCSF publications.

This document sets out how the government plans to work with its partners to create a system resulting in all young people benefiting from spending more time in education and training; it sets out how young people are offered the educational opportunities that will suit them and help them progress, and the provision of additional support to make choices and take advantage of opportunities.


Department for Children, Schools and Families (2007) The Children's Plan: Building Brighter Futures. Norwich: HMSO

The Children's Plan will strengthen support for all families during the formative early years of their children's lives, take the next steps in achieving world class schools and education for every child, involve parents fully in their children's learning, help to make sure that young people have interesting and exciting things to do outside of school, and provide more places for children to play safely.
