This book is the third book in a series which comprise "14-19 Strategic Planning: A Practical Handbook for Schools, Colleges and their Partners". The first two books were "Broadening the 14-19 Curriculum" and "Developments in 14-19 Teaching and Learning". The main purpose of series is to present a summary for managers of some the key elements in the development of the 14-19 phase of education and training. The aspiration is that they can gain an overview of the issues. The topics chosen have emerged through the experience and evaluation of the 14-19 Pathfinders, and from talking to head teachers. The handbook aims to be a resource that managers can call on when planning, implementing and reviewing 14-19 strategy as part of the process of strategic planning. At its simplest, it seeks to answer the questions "What works and what do we need to take into account when developing our 14-19 plans?" Putting learners first is an established slogan for the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) and is a central concept to the future of the 14-19 phase. The book covers three key issues in the development of the 14-19 phase: (1) Information, advice and guidance; (2) Equality and diversity; and (3) the Learner voice.
