star this property answer text <p>The department is committed to ensuring that schools are able to recruit appropriately to fill their teacher vacancies. 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>

star this property answer text <p>From August 2014, students who left key stage 4 without a GCSE grade 4/C or above (or equivalent) in English and/or maths were required to continue studying these subjects as part of their 16-19 study programme. From the following year, students starting a new study programme with a GCSE grade 3/D (or equivalent) in English and/or maths had to enrol on GCSE courses only. From August 2019, students starting a new or continuing an existing study programme with a GCSE grade 2 (or equivalent) or below can study towards a pass in Functional Skills Level 2 or they can still study towards a GCSE grade 4 to 9. Those with a grade 3 (or equivalent) must still study GCSE only. Providers have the freedom to decide if and when students are ready to re-enter for an examination.</p><p> </p><p>For years up until 2014/15 the Department published statistics on the achievement in English and maths by students who had not achieved GCSE A*-C 2 years previously (i.e. the 2014/15 estimates were based on those at end of key stage 4 in 2012/13).

star this property answer text <p>As independent and autonomous institutions, higher education (HE) providers are responsible for decisions regarding the contracts they offer to academics. Like all employers, HE providers have a duty of care to their staff. The department expects them to take this very seriously.</p><p>I gave a speech on 7 May that focused on early career researcher contracts. I am keen that early career academics do not get lost from policy debates – particularly around key issues like mental health and wellbeing. I am looking forward to the upcoming publication of the revised Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, and I am serious about taking this forward.

star this property answer text <p>The multiplication tables check (MTC) is developed and delivered by the Standards and Testing Agency (STA), an executive agency of the Department for Education.</p><p>The STA’s planned expenditure for the MTC over the next five financial years is currently being considered, and will be dependent upon the outcome of the current (2019) national pilot; as a result, definitive final figures are not available at this time.</p><p>However, based on current project spend, service development and project costs to-date, and budget planning assumptions, it is estimated that the check will cost between £650,000 and £700,000 per annum to administer - this equates to around 1.2% of STA’s annual budget. Department officials will be able to confirm the actual figure(s) later in the year.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There is no set timeframe for how long it takes the Office for Students (OfS) to process an application. This is because a final registration decision is dependent on a number of factors. These include the completeness of the application, the scale of the information requested by the assessor during the assessment process and the length of time taken by the provider to respond to such information requests. The time taken for the provider’s bespoke access and participation plan to be negotiated and approved also has an impact on the length of the process.</p> more like this
