The Department has published clear, statutory guidance on how to do so in the document ‘Supporting Pupils at School with Medical Conditions’.</p><p>Pupils with medical conditions should have an individual healthcare plan drawn up in partnership with a healthcare professional, parents and the pupil themselves. Individual healthcare plans should include details of the support a pupil requires, what needs to be done, when and by whom. It should also contain details of any training required to ensure school staff are competent and confident in their ability to provide the support needed.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Mental health is a priority for this government, which is why we continue to work closely with Universities UK (UUK) on embedding the Step Change programme within the sector. Step Change calls on higher education (HE) leaders to adopt mental health as a strategic priority and adopt a whole-institution approach to mental health, embedding it across all policies, cultures, curricula and practice.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the government actively backs the introduction of a sector-led University Mental Health Charter, launched in June 2018. This will drive up standards in promoting student and staff mental health and wellbeing. It will invite universities to meet high standards of practice, including in areas such as leadership, early intervention and data collection.</p><p> </p><p>HE institutions (HEI) have legal responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 to support students, including those with mental health conditions. It is for HEIs to determine what welfare and counselling services they need to provide to their students to offer that support.</p><p> </p><p>The information requested is not held centrally regarding student suicide. However, in June 2018, the Office for National Statistics released experimental statistics estimating suicide among higher education students in England and Wales which can be found following this link: <a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/articles/estimatingsuicideamonghighereducationstudentsenglandandwalesexperimentalstatistics/2018-06-25" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/articles/estimatingsuicideamonghighereducationstudentsenglandandwalesexperimentalstatistics/2018-06-25</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The government has worked with UUK, the Office for Students, and other stakeholders to develop guidance on measures to help prevent suicide and deal sensitively with issues that may arise when tragedy does occur. This guidance was published in September 2018, ahead of the 2018/19 academic year.</p><p> </p><p>As independent and autonomous bodies, HEIs are responsible for decisions regarding required training for their staff and have a duty of care to their staff, like all employers, as well as to their students.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​​The Department has increased bursary funding for religious education courses. In academic year 2019/20, religious education trainees with a 2:2 undergraduate degree or above will receive a £9,000 bursary. Previously a £9,000 bursary was only available to those with a first class degree, while those with a 2:1 degree received £4,000 and there was no funding available for other degree classes. These increases show the Department’s continuing commitment to recruiting religious education teachers.</p><p> </p><p>The Department will review bursary funding this summer, prior to announcing the offer for academic year 2020/21 courses in early autumn. This will involve making difficult decisions about where to deploy funding, which will be based on an assessment of current recruitment performance and available budget.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As set out in the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy, the Department has committed to develop new specialist National Professional Qualifications (NPQs). The focus of the specialist NPQs is yet to be finalised, but they will be linked to the core areas in which teachers receive training at the start of their career, such as assessment, behaviour management, subject and curriculum expertise and pedagogy. The Department will continue to work with the sector, including special education needs and disability stakeholders and literacy specialists, as we design these qualifications. The Department will release further details in due course.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department knows that continuing professional development (CPD) is integral to improving the quality of teaching. Effective, evidence-based CPD strengthens practice, builds confidence and, crucially, improves outcomes for pupils.</p><p>For CPD to be effective, however, it must be tailored to the needs of the individual. That is why decisions relating to CPD, including budgets, rightly rest with schools, headteachers and teachers.</p><p>The Department recognises that more can be done to improve the take-up of high quality evidence-based CPD in schools. That is why the CPD Expert Group has re-convened to develop recommendations that ensure that all teachers have access to high quality, meaningful support and CPD, drawing on the Standard for Teachers’ Professional Development (published in July 2016) and the accompanying implementation guide.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The latest Initial Teacher Training (ITT) census shows that postgraduate recruitment is at its highest level since 2011/12<sup><sup>[1]</sup></sup>, with 29,255 postgraduate trainees recruited this academic year. The Department’s financial incentives package makes a substantial contribution to this. We offer bursaries and scholarships of up to £28,000 for priority subjects, working in partnership with professional bodies such as the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry.</p><p>The Department’s analysis demonstrates the effectiveness of the current financial offer. As the National Audit Office have acknowledged, the Department found that an increase of £1,000 in bursary value led to a 2.9% increase in applications for postgraduate ITT. The vast majority of bursary recipients go straight from training to the classroom. 94% of 2016/17 postgraduate trainee teachers who successfully completed training in a bursary subject were in a teaching post six months later.</p><p>To ensure that the Department is spending money effectively, it is piloting two new financial incentives. The first is a phased bursary for mathematics teachers which comprises a lower bursary during training, followed by early-career payments in the third and fifth years of teaching. The second is a student loan reimbursement scheme for languages and science teachers. Both pilots are designed to encourage talented teachers to remain in the profession.</p><p>[1] Teach First recruitment has been included in ITT census data since 2015/16.</p>
