star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education is committed to recruiting high-quality graduates into teaching. The latest data published by UCAS on 25 September 2014 in its ‘UCAS Teacher Training statistical releases’[1], indicates that there will be an increase in computing trainees commencing initial teacher training (ITT) this year, although this will not be certain until the 2014/15 ITT census is published.</p><p>For computing trainees starting their training in 2015/16, we have increased bursaries to up to £25,000 tax-free. We are also funding a prestigious scholarship scheme for computing trainees worth £25,000 tax-free and offering a range of professional benefits. Additional funding has also been made available to schools offering School Direct (salaried) places in computing to boost starting salaries; computing trainees will be able to earn over £21,000 nationally and £25,000 in inner London.</p><p>There are a range of other incentives in place to attract high quality computing trainees into the teaching profession, including:</p><ol><li>The delivery of a targeted marketing campaign to encourage high-quality computing graduates and potential career changers to consider a career in teaching.</li><li>The offering of tailored support for graduates and career changers interested in teaching computing, including access to a School Experience Programme.</li><li>Funding of computing subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) programmes, which prepare applicants for teacher training by building up or refreshing their existing knowledge. 31% of computing applicants who accepted an ITT place for 2013/14 accessed a SKE course.</li></ol><p>[1] <a href="http://www.ucas.com/data-analysis/ucas-teacher-training-statistical-releases" target="_blank">www.ucas.com/data-analysis/ucas-teacher-training-statistical-releases</a></p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p><strong>I am sorry that the response to this question was delayed by a failure in the data collection system.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) takes the issue of all contraband in prisons extremely seriously and deploys a comprehensive range of robust searching and security measures to detect items of contraband both at the point of entry to the prison and concealed within the prison. These include targeted searching, random and targeted mandatory drug tests, the use of x-ray machines and CCTV surveillance cameras, Body Orifice Security Scanners to detect contraband secreted internally, and the imposition of closed (non-contact) visits. Prisoners found with prohibited items face swift and robust punishment. This can include having days added to their custody, being transferred to a different prison and losing privileges.</p><p> </p><p>The table below gives the number of seizures of heroin and needles (including improvised needles) seized in prisons in England and Wales in 2013. The third column shows the number of prisoners that tested positive for opiates, including heroin in each of those prisons. To disaggregate the data to show those samples positive for heroin from those positive for other opiates would require a detailed investigation of every prison’s locally held records, which would entail significant disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><table><thead><tr><td colspan="4"><p><strong>Finds of heroin, needles and Opiates by establishment<sup>1</sup> 01.01. 2013 to

star this property answer text <p>It is for schools to decide which resources they use to support their teaching. The Government is providing funding of £1.8 million over two years for continuous professional development for primary and secondary teachers to support delivery of the new modern languages curriculum. The training is being funded through nine organisations, whose performance will be monitored against the agreements the Department for Education is making with them.</p><p>In addition, links to sources of support that schools can use to support modern languages teaching in primary school are hosted on the website of the Association for Language Learning.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education has reviewed academic studies on the relationship between class size and attainment. The effect of class sizes on attainment in primary schools has long been contested and complicated by debates about how it can be accurately measured. The most robust studies have been reviewed and suggest class sizes have little effect beyond the early years when smaller classes have some positive impact.</p><p>The review ‘Class size and education in England evidence report’ was published on the Department’s website in December 2011 and is available online at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/class-size-and-education-in-england-evidence-report" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/class-size-and-education-in-england-evidence-report</a></p><p>Children are only permitted to join classes of 30 or more in exceptional cases - if for instance they are in care or from military families and admitted outside the normal admission round. On 12 June, the Department published data that showed the average infant class size currently stands at 27.4, which is well within the statutory limit of 30 pupils per teacher. This is published online at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/schools-pupils-and-their-characteristics-january-2014" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/schools-pupils-and-their-characteristics-january-2014</a></p>
