unstar this property answer text <p>We are pleased that employers are choosing to move to our new, higher quality apprenticeship offer to make a sustainable investment in the skills that they need to grow. Employers are designing higher level apprenticeships that take longer and require more off-the-job training and, while this is something to be welcomed, we are conscious of the challenges it presents.</p><p> </p><p>In 2019-20, funding available for investment in apprenticeships in England will be over £2.5 billion, this is double what was spent in 2010-11. The apprenticeship budget is set in advance by Her Majesty’s Treasury for the current spending review period. Currently, we expect to be within budget in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 financial years. We continue to monitor the trend of increasing spending on apprenticeships and to make use of our engagement with employers in addition to all available data from the programme to inform forecasts of demand and future costs.</p><p> </p><p>The level of funding for the programme beyond 2020 will be determined by the forthcoming Spending Review announced by my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in his Spring Statement.</p><p><em><br> </em></p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We continue to keep the apprenticeship programme under review.</p><p>Level 6+ apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships were introduced in 2015 to bring the benefits of employer-led jobs with training to all levels of apprenticeship employment. We are working to move non-levy paying employers away from the current funding system to give them access to the same award-winning digital service as levy payers. We will provide more information on the transition by July.</p><p>We recognise that small and medium-sized enterprises, most of whom do not pay the apprenticeship levy, are the lifeblood of our economy and it is essential that our reforms work for these employers. Smaller employers that do not pay the levy already benefit from generous co-investment with 90% of training and assessment costs for apprenticeships provided by government. Government co-investment will increase to 95% in 2019.</p><p>The National Apprenticeship Service works through intermediary organisations (trade associations, business representative bodies and local partnerships) to reach smaller employers and increase engagement in apprenticeships. Through these organisations, we can reach up to 1.5 million employers.</p><p>We will continue to review the apprenticeship programme and to ensure we have the right incentives and remove barriers where it is possible.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Bullying and harassment has no place in any workplace, including the Civil Service.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Education has highlighted tackling bullying and harassment as one of its three diversity and inclusion priorities for 2019. It recently appointed fair treatment ambassadors on all of its sites to provide support and advice to people who report bullying or harassment, and has also provided training for managers on inclusive leadership, disability awareness and unconscious bias.</p><p> </p><p>In the most recent People Survey, 11% of respondents across the Civil Service, on average, told us that they had experienced bullying or harassment at work in the 12 months preceding the survey. Whilst this figure has remained stable since 2016, we recognise that certain groups of staff are more likely to say than others that they have experienced this type of unacceptable behaviour. This includes staff members with long-term limiting conditions who, in the vast majority of departments and agencies, were more likely to say that they had been bullied or harassed in the last 12 months than staff members with no long-term limiting conditions. We are strengthening the routes for staff to report bullying and harassment to make sure that all staff are fully supported throughout the process and to make sure that the cultures are positive and inclusive.</p><p> </p><p>The high level People Survey results for each organisation, including reported rates of bullying and harassment, were published last December on GOV.UK. Each spring, the Cabinet Office conducts and publishes a range of further analysis on the People Survey responses, including the results by gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and health status. Similar analysis will be conducted again this year and made available on GOV.UK. In the meantime, the results for the 2017 survey are summarised in the attached table. A copy of this table has been placed in the Houses of both Libraries.</p><p> </p><p>Data on health status for the Civil Service People Survey 2017, which are arranged by organisation, can be found in the attached table. Long-term health status is captured in the People Survey through questions J04 and J04A. J04 asks if the individual has a &quot;long-standing physical or mental health condition, illness, impairment or disability?&quot; and, if they answer yes, J04A asks whether their condition, illness or disability has an impact on their daily activity or the work they can do.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Results are aggregated in to two broad categories: &quot;No long-term limiting condition&quot;, combining those who answer No to either J04 or J04A; and, &quot;Long-term limiting condition&quot;, those who answer Yes to J04 and who answer that their condition limits what they can do either &quot;a little&quot; or &quot;a lot&quot; at J04A.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Any form of intolerance or bullying, including antisemitism is unacceptable. Schools must promote our shared values, which includes mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. The department supports schools to implement this requirement through a range of resources, such as those included on the Educate Against Hate website, as well as by working with networks of experts on the ground who provide direct support to schools on this. Every state-funded school, maintained and academy, must also teach religious education to all pupils up to the age of 18.</p><p> </p><p>Schools must comply with the requirements of the Equality Act and must also have a behaviour policy which includes measures to prevent bullying. Recent research commissioned by the department details common strategies that schools have found to be effective for combating bullying.</p><p> </p><p>The department is funding a number of projects to help schools tackle bullying, including hate-related bullying. This includes funding the Anne Frank Trust to develop their ‘Free to Be’ debate programme, which encourages young people to think about the importance of tackling prejudice, discrimination and bullying. We also recently published the ‘Respectful Schools Communities’ toolkit; a self-review and signposting tool to support schools to develop a whole-school approach which promotes respect and discipline.</p><p>The department is fully committed to educating pupils about the Holocaust and is the only topic that is compulsory in the national curriculum for history. We fund the Centre for Holocaust at University College London to train trainee and serving teachers to teach this important subject and to set up a network of Beacon schools to share good practice. We also fund the Holocaust Education Trust’s ‘Lessons from Auschwitz’ programme, which enables teachers and sixth form students to visit Auschwitz.</p><p>Schools can also address intolerance and bullying as part of non-statutory personal, social, health and economic education. We are also making relationships education compulsory in all primary schools and relationships and sex education compulsory in all secondary schools. We have completed a public consultation on draft guidance which is clear that pupils will be taught about the importance of building respectful relationships including, for example, understanding the impact of bullying and how stereotypes can be damaging.</p><p>Subject to making the regulations, schools will be required to teach these new subjects from September 2020, but they will be encouraged and supported to start teaching them from September 2019 on a voluntary basis.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The government supports the right of parents to educate their children at home, and many families do this well, taking on a very significant responsibility in doing so. Local authorities are responsible for identifying any children who are not receiving a suitable education and taking steps to remedy that situation, if necessary, by enforcing school attendance.</p><p>We want to make sure that every child receives a good education. In some cases, the government is concerned about the quality of education which some children are receiving at home, especially in the context of the increasing numbers of children who are being removed from school to be educated at home.</p><p>As a result, the government consulted in 2018 on revised guidance for local authorities and parents on home education. The finalised versions of this guidance will be published shortly. At the same time, a call for evidence on the issues of registration and monitoring of children educated at home, and support for home educating families, was held, and a government response document setting out proposed next steps will also be published soon.</p>
