 Next Steps

 

We have made good progress with the Local Offer over the last year, however to ensure we continue to improve, we:

•     Need to ensure that the information is useful and accurate, without this the reputation 

      of the Local Offer site will suffer.

•     Need to look at a range of ways of generating quality feedback that can help inform the

      commissioning of local provision.

•     Need to improve some known information gaps on early year's settings and information

      and on post 16 work and careers that needs improvement.

•     Need to employ a range of approaches such as Local Offer Events and Information

      Days to capture feedback on the Local Offer provision.

•     Need to improve how the website works for young people using feedback generated

      by Dynamite. 

•    Need to reinforce the importance with the workforce of the information within the

      Local Offer so as to inform their discussions with parents and young people.

•    Need to improve access arrangements so everyone can access information on the

      Local Offer provision.
