We are moving to GOV.UK and the DfE website will be closing down soon. More information.
Local authorities are responsible for tracking young people’s participation in education and training. They record information about young people's current activity, their characteristics and aspirations. This provides them with the information they need to support young people to engage in education and training, identify those who are not participating and to plan services to meet young people’s needs.
The NCCIS management information requirement is published annually and describes the information about young people’s post-16 activities that should be collected by LAs and reported to DfE in a way that is consistent between LAs and with other data sources.
DfE uses this information to:
Statutory guidance for local authorities (LAs) on their duties relating to the participation of young people in education, employment or training.
Information and statistical data about 16- to 18-year-olds not in education, employment or training (NEET) .
