star this property answer text <p>Whilst designing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and Personal Independence Payment (PIP), the Department considered the relevance of what data should be collected and recorded to support the good management of a DLA or PIP claim. The education status of a claimant is not relevant to a DLA or PIP claim and thus it is not collected for the administration of either a PIP or a DLA claim.</p><p> </p><p>You may be interested to know that there are published statistics available on Stat-Xplore on the number of DLA claims in payment which can be split by region and by age. Filtering on claimants who are aged 15 and 16 will show the number of DLA claimants in payment who are due to be transferred to PIP.

This approach recognises the potential power of transparency, both for employees within organisations and for external audiences. The Government continues to work with employers (including the Civil Service and the NHS) and expert partners to encourage sign up, but there is no requirement for them to notify the Government of how they are using it.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to improving employment outcomes for people with autism. Improving Lives: the Future of Work, Health and Disability is our strategy for helping people with disabilities or health conditions enter and remain in employment. It includes details of several initiatives that will help support disabled people, including people with autism, in making a successful transition to employment. For example:</p><p> </p><ul><li>The Work and Health Programme will provide innovative support for around 275,000 people over five years. The majority of people of starting on the programme (around 220,000) will be disabled people, including people with autism, who can volunteer for the programme at any time.</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>The Personal Support Package for people with health conditions and disabilities, with a range of new interventions and initiatives designed to provide support that is tailored to the individual needs of claimants, including people with autism</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>Access to Work is a demand-led, discretionary grant scheme which offers advice and in-work support to disabled people, including those with autism, above the level of statutory reasonable adjustments. An Access to Work customer may receive an award of up to £59,200 p.a. to pay for support to help them to enter or retain employment. This can include help with getting to work.</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>Through the Disability Confident scheme, DWP is engaging with employers, offering online guidance and helping to promote the skills, talents and abilities of disabled people, including people with autism and associated hidden impairments</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>We are also continuing to build on local initiatives in jobcentres, to ensure that we deliver a consistently supportive service across Jobcentre Plus. For example, as part of Autism Awareness Week in April 2019, we introduced short “Bitesize” Autism Awareness Learning for work coaches and promoted Calm and Quiet Sessions in jobcentres.</li></ul><p> </p><p>Looking forward, the new Intensive Personalised Employment Support Programme, which will roll out by the end of 2019, will provide highly personalised packages of employment support for disabled people, including those with autism, who are at least a year away from moving into work.</p><p> </p>
