  4. 4. 1. Overview Introduction During 2010-2011 London Councils: Young People’s Education and Skills (YPES) team, working on behalf of the 33 London local authorities, commissioned Learning Plus UK to produce Travel to Success reports at level 3 for each London borough. These reports analysed the geographical mobility (travel to study patterns) of each boroughs’ 16-19 year old residents and the quality and the effectiveness of the provision they accessed. This new pan–London overview has been produced as an overarching addition to these reports with the objective of identifying the key themes about performance in London as a region in relation to Travel to Study patterns. The emphasis on graphical and visual methods of reporting is integral to this report, supporting the interpretation and understanding of the data. As this report was incepted when 2011 data was unavailable, Learning Plus UK has based this report on the available 2010 data and has used the model that was adopted for the individual local authority reports. The group of young people being reported on are those who are resident in London studying level 3 courses in 2010 who are either in Years 13 and 14 in school or age 17 and 18 in a college. Where qualifications are reported, only students with one or more results in the following four qualifications are included:  Advanced Level (A2)  Applied Advanced Level (Applied A2)  Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC)  International Baccalaureate (IB) Advanced Subsidiary Levels (AS) have been deliberately excluded from the bar charts and overview due to the inconsistency of the achievement reporting for this qualification. This report is shaped around three key themes which are as follows:- Where young people learn This section provides a summary of the percentages of resident learners that attend providers in their home borough, those who attend providers in other London boroughs and those who attend providers outside of London. What young people learn This section provides a summary of the type of qualification studied (as listed above) by where a learner studies in London and where a learner resides. The top 30 subjects studied both inside and outside of London are shown within this section together with the national fail rates for each of these subjects.

  5. 5. How well young people are learning This section provides a summary on how well London learners are achieving and is based on three measures, namely:  Average point score per student (APS)  Average point score per entry (APE)  Value added score (VA) Travel to Success Pan London Report www.learningplusuk.org www.londoncouncils.gov.uk Page 2
  6. 6. 2. Executive Summary This report has been compiled with the primary objective of identifying the key themes about performance in London as a region in relation to travel to study patterns for learners. The Post 16 analysis has been carried out using a range of educational performance data. However, the analysis does not take into account each London local authority’s priorities for education Post 16 nor does it take account of the complexity of London transport links. Given this, the emerging issues should be treated as thematic and as providing the basis for further consideration. Some of the key findings that have emerged are as follows:- 1) The overall percentage of residents studying within their own borough in London is 50.7 per cent, while 41.0 per cent travel to other London boroughs and 8.3 per cent go outside of London. 2) The percentage of residents studying within their own borough ranges widely across London, from 11.3 per cent to 78.1 per cent. 3) There is some suggestion of a link between high performing boroughs and high local residency rates for Post 16 study, i.e. those boroughs with the highest average points per student also tend to have the highest proportion of residents remaining with providers in that borough. However, this pattern is not consistent across all London boroughs and there are several exceptions. 4) Twelve London boroughs export more than 10 per cent of their learners to local authorities outside of London; two south London boroughs have the highest export rates, at 26 per cent and 29 per cent 5) Only two London boroughs are educating over 75 per cent of their 16-19 year old residents. 6) A greater percentage of learners study A levels in the London boroughs of Bexley, Camden and Redbridge whilst in the London boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Croydon and Hackney, learners study more Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) qualifications. 7) The most popular level 3 subject studied by London residents is Mathematics. 8) The average point score per student (APS) ranges across London from 573.8 to 863.6, with the APS for London in 2010 being 698.8 compared with a national average of 726.5. 9) The average point score per entry (APE) ranges across London from 198.0 to 229.1, with a London average of 212.6 compared with a national average of 211.1. 10)Ten London local authorities are in the top 25 per cent of local authorities nationally for overall progress made at level 3 as shown in the DfE Value Added (VA) score. No London local authority was in the bottom 25 per cent. Travel to Success Pan London Report www.learningplusuk.org www.londoncouncils.gov.uk Page 3
  7. 7. 3. Where young people learn 3.1 Introduction There is a significant body of outcome information available to the Young People’s Education and Skills (YPES) team and individual local authorities on how well students have performed in providers within their home local authority. The information on the performance of young people traveling to study at institutions in other local authorities is far more limited. This section provides an overall pan-London summary of the percentages of resident learners who attend providers in their home borough, other London boroughs or those attending providers outside of London. The first heat maps show the percentage of residents studying in their own borough (3.2), the percentage studying out of borough (3.3) and finally those studying out of London (3.4). The key and ranges are depicted beside each map. The lighter the shading the lower the percentage, the darker shading represents a higher percentage. The two mileage charts that follow show the percentage (3.5) and number (3.6) of learners who remain in borough (highlighted in blue) and the percentage or number who travel to other boroughs or out of London to study. Analysis There are four local authorities that have less than 25 per cent of their residents studying within their home borough, namely the London boroughs of Lambeth, Merton, Southwark and the City of London*. As you would expect, they all export the highest percentage of their residents to providers in other local authorities. The radar charts labelled 3.7 to 3.9 show where the residents of Lambeth, Merton and Southwark choose to travel to study. The percentage of residents studying out of their home borough ranges widely in London. The largest percentage of young people choosing to study elsewhere reside in the London Borough of Lambeth (78.8 per cent) and the smallest percentage of young people traveling from their home borough reside in the London Borough of Havering (10.2 per cent). The City of Westminster and the London boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham and Wandsworth are the three local authorities importing most learners from other boroughs. The radar charts 3.10 to 3.12 show the percentage of learners choosing to study in these authorities and where they reside. The London Borough of Wandsworth is the recipient of the majority of learners and the City of Westminster is the only local authority to import learners from all London local authorities. As might be expected, the residents from outlying boroughs have a higher percentage of learners studying outside of London. The London boroughs of Bexley and Richmond-upon- Thames are the only two boroughs where more than 25 per cent study outside of London. This can be clearly seen on heat map 3.4. *The City of London differs from the 32 other London boroughs in that they do not offer any provision for their 16-19 residents, so is not shown in the radar charts labelled 3.7 to 3.9.

  19. 19. 4. What young people learn 4.1 Introduction This section provides data at qualification and subject level. The first two stacked bar charts show the percentage of learners studying the following qualifications where a learner studies in London (4.2) and where a learner resides in London (4.3):  Advanced Level (A2)  Applied Advanced Level (Applied A2)  Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC)  International Baccalaureate (IB) As previously stated, Advanced Subsidiary Levels (AS) have been deliberately excluded from the bar charts and overview due to the inconsistency in the way that attainment in this qualification is reported. The third table and component bar chart (4.4) show the 30 most popular A level subjects (by percentage uptake) in and outside London alongside the national fail rates for the relevant subject included. The intention is that this data can be used to identify where provision within boroughs may be lacking for certain subjects and to ascertain the reasons why large numbers of students are travelling outside a borough to study a particular subject. Analysis The stacked bar chart (4.3) outlining the relationship between where a learner resides and what they are studying demonstrates how closely all London boroughs almost completely reflect the London totals in terms of A level and BTEC provision with only marginal differences between the Applied and IB qualifications. The fact that the majority of learners stay in their resident borough to study an IB qualification suggests that learners are less likely to travel to pursue this qualification. Further investigation could be done into whether learners are choosing to study for an IB or whether they are choosing to remain within the same school with this being the only qualification on offer. Bar chart 4.4 reveals that Mathematics is the most popular subject for learners studying both in and outside of London and English Literature, Psychology and Biology are the next most popular subjects. In the London boroughs of Croydon and Newham there are an almost equal number of learners studying A levels as study a BTEC National Diploma, a qualification equivalent to three A levels. National fail rates for BTEC qualifications do not exist but this may contribute to the APS, APE and VA for each of these London boroughs.

  23. 23. 5. How well young people are learning 5.1 Introduction This section looks at three measures to determine how well learners are achieving within each London local authority, with the data being based on where the student studies. These are the:  Average point score per student (APS)  Average point score per entry (APE)  Value added score (VA) For each of the above there is a table of values by each authority in alphabetical order, a heat map depicting the range of values and a horizontal bar chart showing the highest to lowest value being measured. The lighter the shading is on the heat map the lower the value to the darkest shadings indicating the highest values for each London local authority. The APS and APE values are based on the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency’s (QCDA) point scores and a table of how these are calculated can be found on page 31. However, to aid comparison, the national APS in England in 2010 was 726.5 and national APE for the same period was 211.1. Analysis The average point score per student (APS) ranges across London from 573.8 (the London Borough of Newham) to 863.6 (the London Borough of Sutton). The APS for London in 2010 was 698.8, approximately 30 points below the national average APS. The average point score per entry (APE) ranges across London from 198.0 (the London Borough of Tower Hamlets) to 229.1 (the London Borough of Sutton). The APE for London in 2010 was 212.6, slightly above the national average of 211.1. The DfE value added score (VA) is viewed as a key indicator in providing an initial view on the overall quality of provision. It is designed to give an indication of the overall progress made by students at level 3. The range across London varies from 990.1 (the London Borough of Sutton) to 1023.8 (the London Borough of Southwark). There is a narrow band of values but each authority can be compared against the table below. No London local authorities are within the top five per cent or the bottom 25 per cent, but 10 are within the top 25 per cent and 23 are within the top 40 per cent. There are only five authorities falling within the middle 20 per cent with a further four below that.

  24. 24. The City of Westminster is the only local authority that imports learners from every London borough and has an APS, APE and VA of 642.8, 207.6 and 1003.6 respectively, below the national average for APS and APE, but above the national average for VA. The London Borough of Wandsworth imports the greatest number of learners from other London boroughs and has an APS, APE and VA of 647.8, 209.7, and 1009.4 respectively, below the national average for APS and APE, but above the national average for VA.

  31. 31. 6. Description and use of the data This section provides a more in-depth description of the data provided and its use in the report. In all sections described below the group reported on are young people resident in each London borough who finished level 3 courses in England in the summer of 2010. They are either in Years 13 and 14 in a school or age 17 and 18 in a college. Only students with one or more results in the following three qualifications are included:  Advanced Level (A2)  Applied A2  Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC)  International Baccalaureate (IB) Where ‘national average’ is reported, this refers to the maintained sector average, as taken from Table 9 and 10 of the DfE Statistical First Release of validated KS5 data. Section 3: Where young people learn This section of the report provides a summary of the percentages of resident learners that attend providers in their home borough and those who attend providers in other London boroughs. OpenHeatMap, an interactive online mapping tool, was used to generate visualisations based on this data. The percentages in the radar charts where resident learners attend providers are the percentages of the total learners in the authority, as defined above, attending providers in that local authority. This data is also provided in a tabular format alongside each chart to assist the reader in seeing a numerical picture of the visualisations. Section 4: What young people learn The data here is a count of the values from the subject types taken for either resident or attending students and is generated from the Individualised Learner Record (ILR) and National Pupil Database (NPD) aims data. Top 30 Uptake The top 30 subjects studied inside of London are shown here, with figures also showing the uptake of these courses outside of London by London residents along with national fail rates as percentages. Section 5: How well young people are learning Average Point Scores and VA There are three heat maps provided in this section:  Average points per student (APS)  Average points per entry (APE)  Value added score (VA) The following ‘DfE Performance Tables website summary – QCA point scores’ provides detailed information on the point scores in the visualisations (see next page) based on a scoring system for all level 3 qualifications approved under Section 96 of the Learning and Skills Act 2000 that were developed by the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency (QCDA). Travel to Success Pan London Report www.learningplusuk.org www.londoncouncils.gov.uk Page 28
  32. 32. The point scoring system developed by the QCDA is designed for use as a means of measuring institutional performance in the Performance Tables. It is not intended that it should replace national systems used for other purposes, such as the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) tariff used to decide student admission to higher education. The following table (Figure 6.1) lists some of the common qualifications and their scores based on the QCDA point score system. Other approved qualifications at level 3 and their point scores can be found on the QCDA website. How the average point score per student is calculated The average point score per student is calculated as the sum of the points awarded to each 16- 18 year old student, using the QCDA point scoring system as illustrated in table provided on page 32, divided by the total number of 16-18 year old students at the end of study towards General and Vocational A/AS or equivalent level 3 qualifications. For example: If student A achieves two General A levels at grade B, a Vocational A level at grade C and a General AS pass at grade D, they would score 780 points (240 + 240 + 210 + 90). If student B achieves one Vocational Double Award at grade AB and a Vocational A level at grade B, and a Key Skill at Level 3, they would score 813 points (510 + 240 + 63). If student C attempts one General A level and receives a grade U but has passed the AS in the same subject with grade B, and achieves a distinction in a BTEC National Award, they would score 390 points (120 + 270). DfE Average point score per student calculation: (780 + 813 + 390) / 3 = 661 points (The sum of each student's points) / (The total number of 16-18 year old students) Average Point Score per Entry This is a similar calculation, however the total points are summed over the total amount of entries (this is weighted, so an A2 entry counts as 1, AS counts as 0.5 etc. depending on how many A- Level awards the course is worth). The DfE Value Added Scores (VA) The DfE VA is viewed as a key indicator in providing an initial view on the overall quality of provision. It is designed to give an indication of the overall progress made by students at level 3 in a centre. The average is set at 1000.

  34. 34. Main data set at provider and course level The group reported on are young people resident in each London borough following level 3 courses in England in 2010. They are either in Years 13 and 14 in a school or age 17 or 18 in a college. The spring 2010 census data from the National Pupil Database was used to identify school students and the 2010 Individualised Learner Record data was used to identify college students. In reporting results:  AS results are for 2009  All other results are for 2010  Any results prior to 2008 are ignored (there are a very small number of exams taken very early)  If the same result is duplicated within NPD only one is counted  Only cashed in results are included Other points to note:  In a small number of cases where the identity of the Learner Achievement Tracker (LAT) subjects is unclear, these have been merged into the more generic subject name.

  35. 35. 7. Data Sources and Sharing The Travel to Success report is based on data from four key sources. Each source provided specific information: Figure 7.1 Data Extracted Source Data extracted Individualised Learner Record Resident borough Provider accessed Courses accessed National Pupil Database Resident borough Provider accessed Courses accessed Department for Education Provider location Provider DfE VA Learner Achievement Tracker Course information Course VA and APS on entry Completions Course fails % In 2011 Learning Plus UK were commissioned by the London Councils Young People’s Education and Skills (YPES) team to produce a pan-London report. In order to produce the report, the Individualised Learner Record (ILR) and National Pupil Database (NPD) data sets were used to:  Identify movement, migration patterns and providers attended for each London borough.  Identify the courses being accessed at each provider. The provider and course outcomes were matched to provider, subject and course value added and achievement information from the Learner Achievement Tracker (LAT) and Department for Education (DfE) Achievement and Attainment (AAT) summaries. No matching at student level took place, only total numbers of students reported at course level. Confidentiality and Data Sharing Protocols To undertake the production of the Travel to Success reports, Learning Plus UK agreed specific data sharing protocols with The Data Service. London Councils: YPES team have signed the Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) data sharing agreement on behalf of all London local authorities. The Learner Achievement Tracker (LAT) data used in the Travel to Success reports falls within this remit, and therefore the data sharing agreement already in place covers both datasets. Travel to Success Pan London Report www.learningplusuk.org www.londoncouncils.gov.uk Page 32
  36. 36. Content The Travel to Success report contains de-personalised LAT data that is aggregated to course and local authority level. To satisfy the data requirements set out in the data sharing agreement the measures provided below have also been applied to the average GCSE point score on entry, value added score and failure rate data contained within the reports. Data within the non-resident London authorities is only shown if there are ten or more resident learners at the provider, and there are ten or more learners (not necessarily all residents) following the course (this is to prevent the identification of individuals and complies with the data sharing agreement). Where data is suppressed to meet data protection requirements the cells have been marked with an X. Travel to Success Pan London Report www.learningplusuk.org www.londoncouncils.gov.uk Page 33
