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 are in alignment with the definitions used by Skills Development Scotland. It will provide information about what is defined as Higher Education; what is defined as Further Education; what is defined as employment etc.
Form A - Planning for leaving School - Document 2:
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 pupil leaving intentions that should support 16+ and DYW planning.
There is the option for young people to state that they 'need some help deciding'. This can be marked as ‘unable to determine’ on SEEMiS, which should flag-up that further support and guidance is required. This status however is for schools only and will not pull through to the Datahub, so will appear as a blank to SDS. It is important, where possible, to try and complete this gap as soon as possible.
Form B – Post-School Offer - Document 3:
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.
Key Dates and Activities Timeline - Document 4:
This monthly planner provides an overview of activities and key dates for Opportunities for All data capture around pupil anticipated leave dates, preferred routes and preferred occupations. It also provides details of key dates for publications and deadlines for noting leavers information.
