"We use the heat maps at subject level to identify potential good practice within institutions to broker school to school support at subject level. Our team of subject inspectors are also able to identify good practice through follow up visits and invite schools to showcase good practice more widely through our LA led subject networks". Reviewer - Julie Rimmer, Durham County Council

"The Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard really helps me to delve into my provisions data. During a recent OFSTED section 5 it created evidence to share with the inspector ready for our discussion. The inspector used the data instead of PANDA, due to it's late arrival. A very helpful tool". Reviewer - Matt Godwin, Grace Academy

We have used the Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard for several years now because it provides us with almost immediate feedback on the value-added performance of our students following the issue of their advanced level exam results in August. The presentation of data is very clear, both at an institutional and subject level and the facility to produce customised charts for analysing the performance of particular student groups is especially useful. We are also very pleased that LPUK provides us with a value added-analysis of our level 2 results since this is not available elsewhere”. Reviewer - Jonathan Wallis, William Morris Sixth Form

"We use the datadashboard to gather evidence for our support and challenge meetings with heads of sixth in our local schools. The clear format, the time saving accumulation of data from a number of sources, has helped us to have informed discussions with colleagues regarding the identified trends, areas of strength, areas for improvement indicated in the data". Reviewer - Kay Zantis, London Borough of Enfield

"The post 16 datadashboard is an extremely useful tool as it allows me to have well-structured challenge and support meetings with school sixth forms. It provides me with an early view of data, presentation is clear and straightforward and the explanatory notes are helpful. When I have a query the learningPlusUk team always respond very quickly with answers that I can understand". - Reviewer comment

"In the London Borough of Haringey all Schools with a Sixth Form are good or outstanding and their performance continues to rise. We use the LPUK Datadashboard as our main Post-16 data tool to support and challenge continued improvements. The system is clear, easy to use and unlike other systems, includes all schools and colleges in the area, allowing quick and easy borough wide comparisons to be made. The service from LPUK is efficient, quick and responsive with any queries or requests for additional information dealt with immediately" Reviewer - Sean May, London Borough of Haringey

“Many thanks for our LPUK Datadashboard– it really is a mine of information, even better than last year’s. Learning Plus UK goes from strength to strength!“ Reviewer comment

"For the LA we are able to analyse and select the most appropriate data from the Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard. At school level it gives us a strategic management tool for the sixth form - we can see at a glance which areas are doing well and which are underperforming." Reviewer comment
