unstar this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to helping families into work, as the best route out of poverty. We are also supporting over 1 million children with free school meals, investing up to £26 million in school breakfast clubs, providing approximately 2.3 million children aged 4-6 with a portion of fresh fruit or vegetables each day at school, and, through the Healthy Start Programme, hundreds of thousands of low income families benefit from vouchers which can be redeemed against fruit, vegetables, milk and infant formula. In 2019/20, the government will be spending more than £95 billion a year on working-age benefits. The new set of food insecurity questions introduced into the existing Family Resources Survey from April will build a better understanding of household food needs, to help ensure we’re targeting support to those most in need.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The criteria for obtaining University Title in England are not legislative, but are set out in departmental guidance (‘Guidance for higher education providers for applying for university title and university college title’ is available at <a href="http://www.gov.uk" target="_blank">www.gov.uk</a>, by searching for its title). These are the same regardless of whether a provider is publicly funded or not. One of the criteria is having taught degree-awarding powers. It is therefore not possible to obtain University Title without having degree-awarding powers.</p><p>If the Secretary of State is satisfied that the criteria have been met and that a provider’s preferred name is not likely to be confusing, the next steps will vary depending on the constitution of the organisation and/or its funding status. In general:</p><p>- Publicly funded higher education providers can obtain University Title from the Privy Council under either Section 77 of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, or Section 39 of the Teaching and Higher Education Act 1998. This usually takes the form of amendments to the provider’s governing documents to reflect the new name.</p><p>- Alternative Providers cannot obtain University Title via the Privy Council, but can instead do so under the Companies Act. The criteria as set out in the guidance still apply. “University” is a sensitive word under company law<sup><sup>[1]</sup></sup>, which means permission from the Secretary of State under the Companies Act 2006, following a non-objection letter from the Department for Education, is required before it can be used in a business or company name.</p><p>There are limited circumstances where a business may be permitted to use the word “university” in their company or business name, without obtaining University Title. For example, a student union may be given such permission. However, the use of a name in this way does not convey the status of a university.</p><p> </p><p>[1] Company, Limited Liability Partnerships and Business Names (Sensitive Words and Expressions) Regulations 2014 (S.I. 2014/3140)</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The term “university” is not defined in legislation. The criteria and processes for obtaining University Title are set out in published guidance, ‘Guidance for higher education providers for applying for university title and university college title’, which the department maintains and updates as necessary.</p><p>There are some references in legislation. Section 77(4) of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 provides that any educational institution that includes the word “university” in its name and is permitted to do so in accordance with section 77(1) is to be treated as a university for all purposes, unless in that name ”university” is immediately followed by the word “college” or “collegiate”. Section 39 of the Education Reform Act 1988 prohibits an institution from unauthorised use of the word “university” in its name in relation to any educational services it offers.</p><p>There is also a partial definition of “university” in Section 90(3) of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 and in Section 235 of the Education Reform Act 1988.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
