2020-2021 SE DCS Peer Challenge

The 2020-2021 SE DCS Peer Challenges will take place between 1 December 2020 and 28 February 2021.

Whilst the detail of the 2020-2021 programme remain provisional as we recover from the corona virus lockdown, we are planning two innovations this year:

1. Coordinating with the Quality Assurance Group we will organise detailed activty in Triad/Quartet groupings which will allow access to the underlying data which informs each authority's self-assessment statement. More details from Diane Williamson (see below for contacts).

2. Alison Michalska of LGA (see below for contacts) will be supporting Lead Members in providing scrutiny and challenge within each authority as the self-assessments are drafted and signed-off.
