16-19 Commissioning Priorities
Each local authority (LA) has a statutory duty to ensure that enough suitable education and training is provided to meet the reasonable needs of young people under the age of 19 (or under 25 if subject to a learning difficulty assessment).
As strategic commissioners of provision in our area Staffordshire County Council is committed to developing a high quality, vibrant and diverse offer of provision that meets the needs of all of our learners and helps us to secure the goals of Staffordshire's Sustainable Communities Strategy. The four goals are to achieve:
A vibrant, prosperous and sustainable economy
Strong, safe and cohesive communities
Improving health and a sense of well-being
A protected, enhanced and respected environment
Education and training for 16-19 year olds has a key part to play in achieving these goals.
