Work on the review is still ongoing. The independent panel will report before the government concludes the overall review.</p><p> </p><p>The current student loan statements are fit for purpose, providing borrowers with the relevant information about their accounts, including loans balance, repayments made and interest accrued over the previous tax year. Student loan borrowers currently receive account statements annually. We are continually working to improve the repayment system for borrowers and are currently exploring how students taking out a student loan can have better online access to much more up to date information on their repayments.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The department welcomes the publication of the Social Mobility Commission’s annual report and the important work that Dame Martina Milburn and her new team of commissioners are doing to promote social mobility across the UK. The Commission’s report shines a light on where government, businesses and employers can continue raising the bar for everyone living in this country and the department will be taking the recommendations seriously.</p><p>Social mobility is a top priority across government, and we have taken great strides to improve it. We are targeting extra support at the areas of greatest challenge and least opportunity to raise standards in schools and attract great teachers. We have also seen disadvantaged 18-year olds entering full-time university courses at record rates. We are supporting pupils to thrive at every stage by setting a 10-year ambition to boost children’s early reading and communication skills, transforming technical education and providing coaching for young jobseekers to put them on track to succeed. We have committed £72 million to improve outcomes for children and young people in our 12 Opportunity Areas: social mobility “cold spots” that face some of the greatest challenges and fewest opportunities. The early evaluation of the programme highlights the benefits of our work in the Opportunity Areas, and we are committed to sharing this good practice with other areas.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s top priority is to ensure that teaching continues to be an attractive and fulfilling profession. A pay rise is being delivered of up to 3.5% for classroom teachers on the main pay range, 2% for those on the upper pay range and 1.5% for those in leadership positions. This is being supported by a Teachers' Pay Grant of over £500 million covering the difference between the first 1% that schools would have been anticipating under the previous public sector pay cap and the 2018 award. <br> <br> A range of measures have been put in place, including generous bursaries, worth up to £26,000 for priority subjects, to encourage trainees to key subjects such as languages and physics. New financial incentives for priority subject teachers are also being tested. These include early career payments for new mathematics teachers and a student loan reimbursement scheme for languages and science teachers.</p><p><br> On 28 January 2019 the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy was launched which outlines four key areas for reform and investment. These are: creating the right climate for leaders to establish supportive school cultures; transforming support for early career teachers; building a career offer that remains attractive to teachers as their careers and lives develop and; making it easier for people to become teachers.</p><p>Designed collaboratively with the sector, the centrepiece of the strategy is the Early Career Framework, which will underpin a fully funded, 2 year package of structured support for all early career teachers linked to the best available research evidence. The strategy can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-recruitment-and-retention-strategy" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-recruitment-and-retention-strategy</a>.</p><p> </p>
