Cambridge Area 14 - 19 Partnership

About us

Background to the partnership:

CAP is a partnership of all the state-funded providers of education and training for 14-19 year olds in Cambridge, East Cambridgeshire and South Cambridgeshire.

The core purpose of CAP is to ensure that every young person (14 – 19) within the Partnership has equality of opportunity to the very best provision, essential in securing high level Engagement, Progression, Participation, Retention and Achievement.

To achieve this CAP will:

  • Establish and communicate a vision for 11-19 Education, taking into account the National and Local Agenda

  • Strategically plan for the realisation of the vision

  • Co-ordinate collaboration between CAP centres and Cambridgeshire County Council to support all young people to continue successfully in education or training until 19

  • Provide a strong, professional community focussed on knowledge sharing and innovation

  • Provide a focal point / hub for employers, funding bodies and other stakeholders to engage with education providers within the CAP area

  • Collect, collate and disseminate information and data relevant to the curriculum, employment, progression and achievement within the partnership

  • Commission projects in response to local needs analysis

  • Champion the disadvantaged

  • Ensure accurate information on all post 14 opportunities is available to all CAP centres

  • Monitor and evaluate the impact of all its activities on the outcomes of all young people (14-19) within the partnership

All CAP’s activities will be conducted with due regard to equal opportunities.
