School Leaver definition form - Document 1:
Document 1 attached below provides a comprehensive description of the different options available to young people when planning what they would like to do when they leave school. These defintions tie-in with options on SEEMiS and is in alignment with the definitions used by Skills Development Scotland.
Form A - Planning for leaving School - Documents 2 & 3:
This form is used to capture information about young people’s intentions. Pupils are required to note what they plan to do when they leave school, when they plan to leave and what their preferred occupation is. This can be updated at any time and is an indication of intention to support planning.
There is the option for young people to state that they 'haven’t decided'. This should be marked as ‘unable to determine’, which should flag-up that further support and guidance is required.
Document 2 is the A4 full version of this data capture form that includes a space for an address and a ‘for office use’ box.
Document 3 is a condensed A5 version of this sheet – 2 forms per page, so will require guillotining.
Form B – Post-School Offer - Document 4:
This form is used to capture information about Actual Destinations and offers of further learning post-school. To be used prior to pupil leaving date where possible. As before it is best practice not to input uncertain information onto SEEMiS, only confirmed destinations. There is a space to write notes about multiple offers on the form such as College applications, job applications, unconfirmed offers etc. This can be recorded in the SEEMiS 16+ notes section.
