star this property answer text <p>Improving social mobility remains a critical challenge for our country. It is a challenge that my department is taking significant strides to overcome.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2010, 1.9 million more children are in good and outstanding schools and more disadvantaged pupils are going to university. The attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers has reduced by 10% since 2011.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, we are proud to have expanded apprenticeships and to have supported more disadvantaged students into higher education. This will help to boost productivity and to expand opportunities.</p><p> </p><p>Our plans to make further progress include spending £72 million on 12 Opportunity Areas. As my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State, mentioned in his speech in July this year, taking action on the home learning environment is also crucial so that children do not fall behind before they start school. That is why he announced plans for a summit with the National Literacy Trust and major businesses in order to find new ways to halve the number of children starting primary school without the necessary literacy skills by 2028.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department works with the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) and the Home Office to ensure educational workforce supply needs are considered as the UK leaves the EU and moves to a new migration framework.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to provide independent advice, due in September, to help develop a future immigration system. The Department welcomed their interim report in March and the contribution it makes to the immigration debate. Their analysis is incomplete and it would be wrong to pre-empt their final report. The Government will take account of the MAC’s advice when making decisions about the future immigration system.</p><p> </p><p>The recruitment and retention of modern foreign languages teachers domestically is a priority. The Department offers a £26,000 tax-free bursary or £28,000 tax-free scholarship for language trainees and funds training in language teaching for teachers wishing to change subject specialism. A student loan reimbursement scheme for language teachers in the local authorities most in need is also available. Initial Teacher Training providers are supported to develop opt in courses for students on undergraduate language degree courses to gain Qualified Teacher Status.</p><p> </p>
