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

star this property answer text <p>We have protected the base rate of funding for 16 to 19 year olds for all types of providers until the end of the current spending review period in 2020. We have been allocated £1.5 billion for the Adult Education Budget for each year of the 2015 Spending Review period to engage adults to participate and develop the skills and learning they need up to level 3 to equip them for work, an apprenticeship or further learning.</p><p>We are actively exploring the efficiency and resilience of further education and will be assessing how far existing and forecast funding and regulatory structures enable high quality provision. This work will align closely with the Post-18 Funding Review in particular, to ensure a coherent vision for further and higher education. As with other areas of departmental spending, further education funding from 2020 onwards will be considered as part of the next spending review.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Our new high quality apprenticeship standards are developed by employers and contain the skills, knowledge and behaviours that an apprentice needs to be occupationally competent, including science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) content where appropriate. Employers are able to choose the standards that best suit their needs and can determine how off the job training content is delivered. We have therefore not made an assessment of the costs to employers of providing STEM off the job training content.</p><p>The criteria that the Institute for Apprenticeships uses to decide the level of STEM content required by apprenticeship standards is a matter for the Institute. I have asked its Chief Executive, Sir Gerry Berragan, to write to the right hon. Member and a copy of his reply will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We have put in place a number of policies which will enable adults, including veterans, to access training to either help them into employment or to develop their careers whilst in employment.</p><p>Our reforms to apprenticeships will provide people of all ages with access to top quality training and career prospects. In addition, the government-funded and government-supported careers offer includes the National Careers Service, which offers free careers information, advice and guidance to both young people and adults.</p><p>The National Retraining Scheme, which was announced in the 2017 Autumn Budget, is an ambitious and far-reaching programme to drive adult retraining. The scheme will help those who are most at risk and in precarious employment to gain the skills they need to thrive as the economy changes. My right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer recently announced £100 million of new government funding, which will allow the roll-out of initial elements of the National Retraining Scheme from next year, and for the continued testing and development of the scheme.</p><p>We are also funding specific schemes which provide training for veterans to become further education teachers or school teachers. Further Forces recruits and trains service leavers to teach science, engineering and technology in further education. There are currently around 100 service leavers engaged in the programme, which is delivered by the Education and Training Foundation. In 2017, additional funding of £900,000 over two years was made available to expand the programme by up to 100 further places.</p><p>For teaching in schools, the Troops to Teachers bursary is worth a total of £40,000 over two years and will help ex-servicemen and women make the transition to the classroom. It is available to veterans who study for an undergraduate degree with Qualified Teacher Status in England in a priority subject.</p><p>This is in addition to the work that the Ministry of Defence undertakes to help veterans into work and new careers.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The decision to appoint M&amp;C Saatchi as the lead creative and strategic agency for the apprenticeships marketing campaign followed an independent and impartial, quality assured procurement process led by the Department for Education’s (DfE) strategic communications team. This was conducted via the Campaign Solutions framework co-ordinated by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), which maintains a roster of 27 best-in-class advertising agencies capable of designing and delivering a major national campaign. More information on the framework can be found at: <a href="https://ccs-agreements.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/contracts/rm3774" target="_blank">https://ccs-agreements.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/contracts/rm3774</a>.</p><p>After an initial engagement meeting with all interested agencies, the brief for the apprenticeships campaign was issued to all 27 agencies on the roster. Three agencies were successful at the first stage and subsequently invited to present their proposals to a team of communications professionals including DfE’s Director of Communications and the Cabinet Office Head of Campaigns. Throughout this process, additional support was provided by professionals from the DfE Commercial Directorate and the CCS. A cross-government team, comprising specialists from the Cabinet Office and Government Communication Service, reviews all proposals for major public-sector communications campaigns to confirm that they represent industry best practice and value for money.</p><p>Ministers only meet government contractors once this process has been concluded and a winning bidder notified. M&amp;C Saatchi were notified on 8 June. I subsequently met with the senior account planner from M&amp;C Saatchi on 23 July as part of a regular ministerial apprenticeships ‘stocktake’ meeting. My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State has not met with representatives of M&amp;C Saatchi.</p><p> </p>
