star this property answer text <p><ins class="ministerial">The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has had no such discussions. National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) are not public bodies, and as such are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act. NGBs are typically independent, self-appointed organisations that govern their sports through the common consent of their sport. Transparency is an important principal of good governance, and is reflected in our Code for Sport Governance, with which all bodies in receipt of UK Sport or Sport England funding must now demonstrate compliance. </ins></p><p><del class="ministerial">The cross-Government sport strategy ‘Sporting Future’ set out our intention to encourage as many people and groups to enjoy sport as participants, spectators and in the workforce, including the LGBT community. It also includes a number of other actions to ensure that all under-represented groups can take part in sport and wider physical activity through a focus on local delivery, and working with people through volunteering, coaching and the sporting workforce. Our aim is to increase diversity among sporting organisations and help the sport sector to be more inclusive and welcoming to all.</del></p><p> </p><p><del class="ministerial">Government continues to work with Sport England and National Governing Bodies of sport, alongside organisations including Pride Sports, Stonewall, and Kick it Out on a number of anti-homophobia initiatives aimed at encouraging inclusion. In March, Sport England commissioned Pride Sports to produce a second in depth report on barriers to LGBT participation. This research on volunteering, provision and attitudes and behaviours has been completed, and Sport England is currently considering what actions they will take based on the findings.</del></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The number of teachers is at an all-time high: there are now 457,300 full time equivalent teachers, up 15,500 from 2010. The number of new teachers entering our classrooms continues to outnumber those who retire or leave, and the number of teachers returning to the profession is 8% higher than in 2011.</p><p> </p><p>We are continuing to offer generous bursaries to recruit the best graduates into the profession. From 2018 we are increasing funding across all high priority subjects. Our prestigious scholarship scheme will also continue, offering a package of tailored support and up to £28,000 tax-free for scholars in six subjects. We are also introducing a new style bursary for mathematics teachers with early retention payments.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to these generous incentives, teachers will benefit from the newly announced rise in the student loan repayment threshold and we will be piloting a new student loan reimbursement programme for science and Modern Foreign Language (MFL) teachers in the early years of their career, targeted in the areas of the country that need them most. We have also recently announced a £30 million investment in support for schools that struggle most with recruitment and retention.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education allocates initial teacher training (ITT) places to accredited ITT providers in England. We allocate more places each year than are required, as we do not expect to fill every place. The number of trainee teachers who actually start courses with those ITT providers is published in the ITT Census in November each year.</p><p>The available information for the years requested is summarised in the attached table.</p><p>ITT allocations are published in the ‘Allocations’ section of the department’s ‘Statistics: initial teacher training’ webpage. The number of new entrants to ITT is published in the ITT Census, available in the ‘Census data’ section of the same webpage.</p><p>Please note that there is no allocations publication for 2016/17, as the department did not allocate ITT places. ITT providers were allowed to recruit as many trainees as they felt necessary (subject to a limited number of controls) until the system had recruited sufficient trainees at the national level.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

This means funding per pupil for schools and high needs will be maintained in real terms for the next two years.
