star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the challenges of helping those with the most complex health conditions move closer to work. The new Personal Support Package announced in <em>Improving Lives: The Work, Health and Disability </em>Green Paper introduces a range of new measures and interventions designed as part of a package of support which can be tailored to people’s individual needs. The offer, which applies to all Employment and Support Allowance claimants (and Universal Credit equivalents), includes personal support from disability trained, accredited work coaches, with a focus on mental health. Work coaches will be supported by an additional 300 Disability Employment Advisers and around 200 new community partners with disability expertise and local knowledge. This will lead to better signposting to other local voluntary and public sector services that may be available. A copy of the Green Paper is attached.</p><p> </p><p>The Government recognises that more needs to be done to help people stay well at work, including those with complex health conditions. The consultation on the Green Paper will help us to consider appropriate new models of support to help more people with disabilities or long term conditions to enter and remain in work.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The government’s careers strategy puts employers at the heart of a high-quality careers programme for young people. We are asking every school and college to use the Gatsby benchmarks that define all the elements of excellent careers provision, including encounters with employers and employees and experiences of workplaces. They will be measured against these benchmarks.</p><p> </p><p>Statutory guidance, ‘Careers guidance and access for education and training providers’ (attached), published in January 2018, sets out how schools meet the Gatsby benchmarks. We will shortly publish equivalent guidance for colleges. The guidance documents include an expectation that each school and college offer every young person at least one encounter with an employer each year from years 7 to 13. Due to the growing demand for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills, particularly in sectors such as engineering, construction and manufacturing, this should include encounters with STEM employers. Rather than defining STEM in a particular way, our statutory guidance sets out that schools should give pupils access to a broad range of STEM employers. We want employers of all sizes, and from all sectors, to offer encounters that inspire people and provide information regarding the skills that employers need. We have also placed a new legal duty on schools to ensure there are sufficient opportunities for young people to hear directly from providers of technical education qualifications and apprenticeships. This will ensure that young people learn about the alternatives to academic and school-based routes, leading to better-informed choices.</p><p> </p><p>The statutory guidance outlines that schools and colleges should begin to work towards meeting the benchmarks by the end of 2020. Schools can assess how their support compares against the benchmarks by using Compass, an online self-assessment tool developed by The Careers &amp; Enterprise Company (CEC) and The Gatsby Charitable Foundation. The CEC will publish a report annually, based on data gathered from the Compass tool, showing what progress schools and colleges have made in meeting the Gatsby benchmarks.</p><p> </p><p>Ofsted will continue to hold schools and colleges to account for the quality of careers provision.
