To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what targets the Government has set (a) institutions and (b) students regarding state secondary schools and post-secondary education; and what epresentations his office has received regarding compliance with and attainment of those targets. [126889]

We set high level national targets which reflect our overall aim for both secondary and post-secondary education achievement. These provide a framework for targets to be determined for institutions and students by those working at the local level. All our national targets and progress against them can be found in the Departmental Annual Report, copies of which can be found in the House of Commons Library. The Department receives representations covering a wide range of different views on the purpose, importance, choice and definition of targets.
