An overview
THE NEW SYSTEM
Why are we changing things?
The Ministry has developed the new system to:
•
address imbalances in funding allocations across regions
•
ensure that LEOTC provision supports Ministry priorities
•
deliver a stable and innovative range of programmes in
support of the national curriculum
•
ensure that LEOTC programmes meet the needs of as many
schools and students as possible
•
encourage collaboration and partnership to deliver sustainable
and effective programmes.
The basic system
Annual LEOTC evaluation
•
Conducted annually between January and March
•
A publicly available report published in April
•
Analyses patterns of provision and use of LEOTC
•
Investigates how well LEOTC provision is addressing
Government priorities
•
Report forms the evidence base for that year’s tender round.
Tendering and selection
Intend to implement a two stage process:
•
Stage One: Expression of Interest (EOI), focused on
curriculum and programme offer. Used to shortlist proposals,
teacher and subject specialist involvement in selection
•
Stage Two: closed Request for Proposal (RFP), similar to
existing RFP, only shortlisted providers apply, evaluated by
independent panel
•
Feedback to successful and unsuccessful providers after both
stages
•
Panel recommends contract length.
Contracting
•
Similar process to existing one, template contracts are
developed by the Ministry, providers contribute to the drafting
of their contracts followed by a formal negotiation period.
•
Expect that contract format will allow for programmes
describes in separate schedules.
Reporting and monitoring
•
Move from quality assurance to quality improvement based
system
•
Visit reporting changed to provide data set for annual
evaluation
•
Trialing approach in 2012.
