This money will kick-start or improve breakfast clubs in over 1,700 schools. The focus of these clubs has been to target the most disadvantaged areas of the country – including the Department for Education’s Opportunity Areas – to help make sure every child gets the best start in life.</p><p> </p><p>The programme will also deliver innovation projects with the aim of testing solutions to delivery and access barriers, and enhancing the health and education benefits. Innovation projects will seek to test out new approaches to enhancing the health, education or wider socioeconomic benefits and to overcoming delivery and access barriers.</p><p> </p><p>We monitor management information from the programme on an ongoing basis and will also review the effectiveness of the programme fully once the programme concludes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are clear that outcomes are not just about economic returns. Our higher education system transforms lives and is a great contributor to both our industrial success and the cultural life of the nation. High quality provision in a range of subjects is critical for our public services and culturally enriching for our society.</p><p>The Teaching Excellence Framework puts clear information in the hands of students about the teaching quality and outcomes they might expect to receive.</p><p>In addition, the government regularly publishes information on the benefits of higher education ranging from; research publications on student aspirations and the wider non-market benefits, to statistical publications on graduate employment and earning trends including ‘Graduate Labour Market Statistics’ and ‘Longitudinal Education Outcomes’ publications, which can be found on the gov.uk website:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/graduate-labour-market-statistics-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/graduate-labour-market-statistics-2018. </a></p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-higher-education-graduate-employment-and-earnings" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-higher-education-graduate-employment-and-earnings. </a></p><p>The government is due to publish an updated study in the coming months on the earnings premium graduates can expect from holding a degree.
