Linking Schools and Colleges. Mapping and Reviewing Local Provision at 16-19.
In 1982, a model was proposed for linking the services provided to 16-to 19-year-olds in Great Britain by local education authorities (LEAs), schools, and colleges. A study examined the operation of this model in the Oxfordshire LEA. The full-time educational opportunities available in the LEA were described and mapped. Next, of 1,419 persons in the district sampled, 233 fifth-formers completed questionnaires designed to ascertain their attitudes and aspirations; staff in educational institutions in the district were interviewed. After concluding that the 1982 model was restrictive and too demanding, the researcher suggested a new three-tier model. The first tier is a simple map or overview, the second is an outline of individual courses, and the third is in the form of a detailed leaflet. A detailed flowchart outlining the publicity recommended to promote the three-tier system was formulated. (Appendixes to this report include the survey instruments and supplementary data from the survey.) (MN)
