star this property answer text <p>The department does not collect information on the subjects offered by individual institutions. However, the number of students entering each subject can be provided as a proxy, and this data is available at institutional level from 2011/12. Between 2011/12 and 2016/17, there have been 99 sixth form colleges that were open for at least one year. The attached table gives the number of pupils entering each subject at each institution for each year.</p><p>Some sixth form colleges were not always open, have since closed, or have converted to academies (these are denoted as ‘-’ in the figures). Having zero entries into a subject does not necessarily mean that the subject was not offered by the sixth form in that year - it could be the case that no students chose to enter it or if they did, they sat no exams in that particular year. Some sixth forms also have small cohorts of students and therefore the numbers entering different subjects is naturally low and prone to fluctuation; this could lead some sixth forms to have no entries in particular years.</p>

That is why we will be participating in the next round of The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s second Survey of Adult Skills in 2021 – an international research project that will provide invaluable information about the performance of our national skills system and how it compares internationally. Data will be collected in 2021-22 with publication of the results in 2023. As a result, the department is not currently planning to conduct a further Skills for Life Survey (which was last carried out in 2011).</p><p>The Survey of Adult Skills has very similar coverage to Skills for Life in terms of age (16 – 65), and is a direct measure of adults’ core skills in literacy, numeracy and information and communications technology, triangulated with their qualifications, employment and use of skills both within and outside of work. In addition, the data from the Survey of Adult Skills is internationally comparable, unlike Skills for Life 2011.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Following our reforms to apprenticeships, we are making significant reforms to technical education, the centrepiece being the introduction of T levels - a high quality and rigorous technical alternative to academic education. T levels will be two-year classroom-based technical training programmes for 16 to 19 year olds, which include a technical qualification, work placement, English and maths and any other components required by employers. The first teaching of T levels will begin in September 2020 with all routes available from September 2022. We will be investing up to an additional £500 million a year on T levels once fully rolled out.</p><p>This builds on our reforms to apprenticeships, making them longer, better, with more off-the-job training and proper assessment at the end. We are also encouraging employers to take on younger apprentices aged 16 to 18, through incentives to employers and training providers. We have also introduced a new careers strategy which sets out how we will go further to make sure that young people can talk regularly to employers and training providers while they are still at school. This includes a new law, requiring all maintained schools and academies to make sure that there is an opportunity for a range of providers to talk to pupils from years 8 to 13 about approved technical education qualifications or apprenticeships, so that they are aware of the different options.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The 16 to 19 funding arrangements for school and college places include an element of disadvantage funding. This element of the funding is for providers to attract, retain and support disadvantaged students and to support students with special educational needs and disabilities. Disadvantage funding is provided to institutions for students with low prior attainment or for students who live in the most disadvantaged areas. For the 2018/19 academic year, we have allocated approximately £510 million to institutions for 16 to 19 year olds to provide extra support for students from disadvantaged areas.</p><p>The department also provides financial support for 16 to 19 year olds who are economically disadvantaged to help with costs associated with staying in post-16 education such as travel and course equipment. The 16-19 Bursary Fund is the main programme, but there is also residential and childcare support available. These programmes aim to enable 16 to 19 year olds to participate in education whatever their financial situation.</p><p>For those aged 19 and above, the Adult Education Budget provides financial support to help adult learners to overcome barriers that prevent them from taking part in learning. Through learner support, colleges and training providers have the discretion and flexibility to help learners meet costs such as travel, books, equipment and childcare. In addition, learning support, such as equipment, an interpreter or support worker, is available to meet the needs of learners with learning difficulties or disabilities. If the cost of support exceeds the fixed monthly rate that providers can claim or if the cost of support exceeds £19,000 per learner per year, providers can apply for exceptional learning support.</p>

For 2018/19 academic year the college made 68 offers to study academic A levels at its Knowsley campus. Twelve learners progressed to enrol and attend at the college. However, due to low numbers it was financially unviable to deliver at the Knowsley Campus, so the learners access A Level provision on the St Helens Campus via bespoke transport.</p><p>For 2019 the college has committed to continue to promote the development of A level provision at the Knowsley campus and this is being marketed in their prospectus for 2019/20. They now have in place specific branding alongside targeted promotional activities including: a 2019 school leaver prospectus distributed to all local schools, supermarkets, convenience shops, community centres, and libraries; an A level advert in the college adult course guide in December which is distributed to 65,000 local homes across Knowsley and surrounding Liverpool areas; digital ad vans promoting the A level offer prior to college open evenings; and planned and targeted social media campaigns, local press promotions and railing banners. Furthermore, there are specific A level events for local school career advisers and school liaison teams are working directly in feeder borough schools to promote the A level offer.</p>

star this property answer text <p>It is the responsibility of individual employers within the further education sector to set the salaries of their staff. For the period of 2019 to 2020, we estimate that £80 million more will need to be put into the Teacher Pensions Scheme by further education employers as a result of the recent revaluation.</p><p>Our intention is to fund general further education colleges and sixth form colleges, specialist designated institutions and adult and community learning providers for the increased costs resulting from the changes to the valuation of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.</p><p>We will undertake a public consultation to make sure that we are allocating funding to where it is most needed. We expect to launch the consultation in December, with a response in January 2019. As the Local Government Pensions Scheme is due to be revalued in 2019, we are therefore unable to make estimates about employer costs until that valuation is completed.</p><p> </p> more like this
