The covenant is a written and publicised voluntary pledge from businesses and other organisations who wish to demonstrate their support for the armed forces community.</p><p> </p><p>The covenant can be signed by a business or other organisation of any size, and from any industry whether they are an employer of a member of the armed forces community or simply wish to acknowledge publically their support for the armed forces.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) National Employer and Partnership Team (NEPT) actively promote the Armed Forces Covenant to those employers and partner organisations they work with. This has been adopted into routine business to ensure that those new to DWP’s employer portfolio are aware of the opportunity and benefits of support to the Armed Forces community.</p><p> </p><p>Every Jobcentre Plus District has an Armed Forced Champion (AFC) who is key to delivering our commitments under the covenant. The AFC will ensure that any concerns and issues raised which affect Service Personnel and their families are integrated within the wider work of Jobcentre Plus. AFCs ensure Work Coaches and other DWP staff can effectively support serving personnel, service leavers, veterans and their families.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to the local activity in Jobcentres to support veterans our National Employer and Partnership Team (NEPT) also work closely with the Ministry of Defence to align engagement activity in support of the veteran’s strategy. In particular NEPT work closely with the MOD Careers Transition Partnership (CTP) and the Defence Relationship Management (DRM) team to encourage large employers, trade body associations and partner organisations to provide practical support to the Armed Forces Covenant, particularly the employment of veterans.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The policy work that underpinned the reforms introduced by the Higher Education and Research Bill (HER Bill) was largely undertaken by civil servants and drew on previous published material including, for example, the Gaskell Review that was prepared for Universities UK. This material was referenced in the Green Paper published in October 2015 and again in the White Paper in May 2016 that preceded the introduction of the HER Bill.</p><p>BEIS commissioned Deloitte to undertake preliminary organisational design work ahead of the establishment of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), working with BEIS, the UKRI Interim Chair and senior leaders from the existing Partner Organisations which will form UKRI. The brief was to set out high level organisation design principles, assumptions and options for UKRI consistent with the framework set out by the White Paper and the HER Bill. The work was completed in October 2016 as preliminary specialist advice for BEIS officials and ministers to inform further organisational design work being carried out within BEIS and hence it is not planned to publish the commissioned report.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Private providers of higher education must meet robust financial sustainability standards in order to be designated for student support. Providers that have not been trading for three years must submit a plan to ensure that students can achieve their academic outcomes if they are unable to fully deliver their course.</p><p>In cases of significant financial failure where a private provider goes into administration, the department may grant temporary designation to the new owners to protect the student interest and to allow students to complete their studies.</p><p>The UK quality code for higher education sets out the responsibility of degree awarding bodies when providers delivering their courses become insolvent, cease trading or the agreement is terminated. Degree awarding bodies ensure that adequate contingency plans are in place against these possibilities, but where they occur, a range of solutions may be possible for ensuring that students who wish to complete their course can do so.</p><p>The Higher Education and Research Bill will ensure that in future the Office for Students (OfS) has the necessary powers to require student protection plans are in place for all approved and approved (fee cap) providers, and to intervene if there are signs that quality in any HE institution is failing. The OfS will take a ‘risk based’ approach to student protection, ensuring that the level of protection required in the plan is proportionate to each provider. It is intended that the OfS will monitor the financial health of institutions, alongside other potential ‘triggers’, and will require student protection measures to be implemented whenever there is a risk to student’s continuity of study. We expect these student protection plans to be available to all students, and to set out the protections students can expect if a course closes, or in the rare instance where an institution decides to exit the market.</p>
