Peer challenge and review

Peer challenge and review relates to the opportunities for groups of local authorities to come together on an annual basis to scrutinise each other’s data self-evaluations in sub-regional clusters (three or four authorities). The learning from these events is collated at a sub-regional level and feeds into whole-London learning. Peer challenge can also take place in relation to specific areas of work such as the workforce peer challenge which has been undertaken following individual LA’s workforce self-evaluations. Outputs and resources relating to peer challenge can be found in the relevant sub-regional or thematic pages on the website.

Preparation for Adulthood Peer Review 

LIIA held a Peer Review event for 6 London Boroughs on the 4th July on the topic of Preparation for Adulthood, specifically looking at Employment Pathways for young people with SEND. We were lucky to be supported in this by Linda Jordan (NDTi) and Jane Humpherys (LGA). You can read a report on the Peer Review event here. We plan to hold a second Peer Review event on Preparation for Adulthood for LAs who haven't yet taken part in the Autumn term.
