The 2020-2021 SE DCS Peer Challenges took place between 1 December 2020 and 28 February 2021.
This year’s programme saw two innovations.
1. Alison Michalska of LGA (see below for contacts) supported Lead Members in providing scrutiny and challenge within each authority as the self-assessments were drafted and signed-off.
2. Coordinating with the Quality Assurance Group. We tested a process of detailed QA Group activity in Triad/Quartet groupings to maximise access to the underlying data which informs each authority’s self-assessment statement. We plan to use our learning in future years to futher develop this approach.
We provide access to our growing library of the region’s self-assessments and the Peer Challenge data packs in the password-protected Peer Challenge Library.
This has been set up as a resource for nominated participants to the 2020-2021 SESLI Programme DCS Peer Challenge cycle.
If you are a nominated participant and have yet to receive log-in details, please contact Isabelle Gregory (details below).
