star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to building an economy that works for everyone. Through the National Minimum Wage and the National Living Wage, the Government is ensuring that the lowest paid within our society benefit from their contribution to the economy.</p><p> </p><p>In April 2019, an above-inflation increase in the 16-17 year old National Minimum Wage saw 38,000 young workers receive a pay rise. The rate increased by 3.6% to £4.35 per hour. Since 2015, the National Minimum Wage for the 16-17 age group has increased by 12.4%.</p><p> </p><p>In the first quarter of 2019, the unemployment rate for 16-17 year olds was 19.2%, down from 28% in 2015. As noted by the Low Pay Commission in its 2018 report, for 16-17 year olds, the priority remains their effective entry into the labour market, as they are the most vulnerable age group in the labour market due to their relative lack of experience.</p><p> </p><p>In 2018, approximately 2,900 workers in Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill were on one of the minimum wage rates.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Data Protection Act 2018 set new standards for protecting personal data, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation. It imposed strict obligations on organisations to ensure that personal data is processed safely and securely. Organisations which fail to comply with the new legislation may be investigated by the Information Commissioner’s Office and subject to substantial fines.</p><p> </p><p>All organisations that process personal information must comply with data protection principles. One of these principles states that organisations shall be fair, lawful and transparent in the collection and use of personal data. That means all relevant organisations, including providers of artificial intelligence technology, must clearly explain and justify what they will be doing with personal information that they collect.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has also recently set up the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation to identify and address any gaps in the data and AI governance landscape, as and when they emerge. The Centre will provide independent expert advice to Government on the measures needed to enable and ensure safe, ethical and innovative use of data and technology.</p>

The majority of teachers in schools in England are recruited from within the UK and our priority is to meet our teacher recruitment needs domestically. However, schools have always been able to recruit staff internationally, and teachers from overseas make an important contribution to our education system.</p><p> </p><p>The department runs programmes to help schools recruit from overseas. Our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics International Teacher Recruitment Programme supports state-funded secondary schools in England with the recruitment of maths and physics teachers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the USA.</p><p> </p><p>In our recently published ‘Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy’, we committed to exploring opportunities to develop new and existing partnerships, focusing particularly on language teachers, in order to boost the recruitment of teachers from overseas.</p><p> </p><p>The government’s white paper ‘The UK’s future skills-based immigration system’, outlined proposals to introduce a new skilled workers route, open to all countries across the globe with an expanded skills threshold covering work at Regulated Qualifications Framework level 3 and above, including teachers. Those coming to the UK on this route will need to be sponsored by an employer.</p><p> </p><p>As part of developing this new immigration system the Home Office is undertaking a programme of extensive engagement with stakeholders across the whole of the UK to shape the final details of policy and processes, and the department will continue to work very closely with them on this.</p>
