answer text <p>The apprenticeship levy is collected by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) from all UK employers with a pay bill above £3 million. Monthly receipts data for the apprenticeship levy is published by HMRC in its tax and National Insurance contributions receipts publication which can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hmrc-tax-and-nics-receipts-for-the-uk" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hmrc-tax-and-nics-receipts-for-the-uk</a>.</p><p>Between April 2018 and February 2019, £2.5 billion was raised from the levy.</p><p>Employers’ levy funds are distinct from the Department for Education’s ring-fenced apprenticeship budget, which is set to fund apprenticeships in England only. The budget has been set in advance by Her Majesty’s Treasury for the current spending review period (to 2019-20). The budget was £2.2 billion for the 2018-19 financial year and it will rise to over £2.5 billion in 2019-20 – double what was spent in 2010. It is used to fund new apprenticeship starts in levy and non-levy paying employers and to cover the ongoing costs of apprentices that are already in training. A detailed breakdown of spending for 2018-19 will be published in the Education and Skills Funding Agency Annual Report and Accounts.</p><p>In the 12 months from February 2018 to January 2019, the most recent month for which data are available, £2.36 billion in levy funds were received into employers’ apprenticeship service accounts. These funds are available for employers to use for 24 months before they begin to expire on a rolling, month-by-month basis. In the same time period, a total of £523 million of payments were made from apprenticeship service accounts to cover training costs for learning. This figure does not include other costs, such as incentives and additional payments for disadvantaged apprentices.</p><p>We don’t anticipate that all levy-payers will use all the funds in their accounts. Income from the levy is also used to fund apprenticeship training for non-levy paying employers.</p>

answer text <p>No group of pupils is considered less important than another, and we would not expect schools to become negligent in their support of vulnerable pupils due to an absence of named groups in Ofsted's proposed new inspection framework.</p><p>While Ofsted could list all of the different groups that schools need to consider, including young carers, it believes an exhaustive list fails to acknowledge that many pupils may fit into several groups. Ofsted has consulted on its proposed new inspection framework and its response to the consultation will be published shortly.</p><p>The government is committed to supporting young carers, so they are safeguarded from excessive or inappropriate caring responsibilities and supported to achieve their full potential.</p><p>As well as delivering the commitments set out in the Carers Action Plan 2018-20, we have also launched the Children in Need Review. This will identify how to spread best practice on raising educational outcomes of children in need, including young carers assessed as being in need.</p><p> </p>

As at 31 January 2019, 5,728 30 hours eligibility codes had been issued in West Sussex for the Spring term, 5,144 of these had been validated and as at 28 March 2019 5, 230 children were taking up a place in the West Sussex.</p><p>We plan to spend around £3.5 billion on our early education entitlements this year alone – more than any other government. Our funding rates for the early education entitlements were based on our Review of Childcare Costs, described as “thorough and wide ranging” by the National Audit Office. We recognise the need to keep our evidence base on all aspects of early years sector costs up to date and we continue to monitor the provider market closely through a range of regular and one off research projects. That included the 2018 Early Years Provider Costs report which looked at a representative sample of providers, both in terms of provider type and geography, and gives an insight into various aspects of the provider market.</p><p>Data published by Ofsted in November 2018 shows that the number of childcare places available has remained broadly stable since 2012. Since the rollout of 30 hours commenced in September 2017, the sector has risen to the challenge with more than 340,000 3 and 4 year old children benefitting from a place and we receive contact regularly from the sector on this and associated topics. We are now in the second year of national delivery and an estimated 325,000 children were in a 30 hours place in the spring term 2019 – this is an increase on the spring term 2018 and 92% of the codes were issued. Although childcare providers do not have to offer the free 30 hours, our 2018 Providers Survey shows that the majority of providers in England with 3 to 4 year olds are offering and delivering 30 hours.</p><p>The data relating to the number of children receiving 30 hours in England is published within tables 5LA and 7LA in the ‘Education Provision for Children under 5 Years of Age (January 2018)’ statistical publication, available at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/education-provision-children-under-5-years-of-age-january-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/education-provision-children-under-5-years-of-age-january-2018</a>.</p>
