VA/DT data are available as a suite of reports, including: • Summary Charts. • National Comparison Graphs. • National Chances Charts.

  7. Overview of LAT 1 The LAT service on the Provider Gateway The LAT is a service on the Provider Gateway that provides access to VA/DT reports and VA/DT data. Release of the LAT service on the Gateway replaces the use of the OLDC portal for disseminating the reports. A national pilot of the LAT service began in March 2006. Providers can use the VA/DT reports generated by the LAT to make judgements about institutional performance.

  9. Overview of LAT 1 Implementing measures of success handbook The LSC provides an Implementing measures of success handbook (to be published in December 2006) which includes: • Detailed information about Value Added (VA) and Distance Travelled (DT). • Qualification Success Rates. • Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement (RARPA). • Information about how to interpret and apply the VA/DT reports for quality improvement. • Case studies. • Provider Gateway information. • Information about the Framework for Excellence.

  10. Overview of LAT 1 Security of Information in the LAT • All information relating to a provider is held in strict confidence in the LAT. A provider cannot view a report relating to another provider. • Authorised staff, including (home-based) inspectors at Ofsted and the ALI, can search on all providers on the Gateway and generate reports pertaining to any provider. • Within the LSC, authorised staff can generate reports pertaining to any provider. • The LSC shall not be liable for any indirect or consequential loss, damage, injury or cost whatsoever.
