The Department engaged the National Foundation for Educational Research to evaluate the Increased Flexibility Programme. A number of evaluation reports have been published, including the report of the evaluation of the first year in February 2004 and the report of the evaluation of the second year in January 2005. The evaluations have covered the experience of implementation and the impact on:

progress towards qualifications; social skills; employability skills; behaviour and attitudes; attendance; plans for progression; partnership working.

A final report of the evaluation is due to be published in August 2005 and will include findings on achievements of young people in the first cohort, and their post-16 participation.
