In its first year, participation in the collection was voluntary, but from September 2022, submitting a return is mandatory for all eligible providers. This collection will allow the DfE to build reliable data sets to help design effective and impactful policy to support the sector going forwards. The outcomes will be published in Spring 2023, for the benefit of providers and key stakeholders, such as Ofsted, and sector representatives.
The FE Workforce data collection for the 2021 to 2022 academic year will open on 12 September 2022 and will close on 25 November 2022.
Revised documents have been published on GOV.UK. There are no changes to the FE governor data collections for 2021 to 2022.
