question text To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if he will make an assessment of the implications for his policies of the October 2019 report Learning and Work Institute report, Bridging the Gap: next steps for the apprenticeship levy, which has found that the levy fund could be overspent by £1 billion in the next year. more like this

answer text <p>The apprenticeship levy is collected by HM Revenue and Customs from all UK employers with a pay bill above £3 million. Separately, HM Treasury sets the Department for Education a fixed, annual budget for apprenticeships in England. This budget is distinct from the levy and is used to fund new apprenticeship starts for both levy and non-levy paying employers, and must also cover the ongoing costs of apprentices already in training<em>. </em></p><p> </p><p>We welcome employers designing higher-level apprenticeships which are longer and require more off-the-job training. However, we are conscious that this will increase costs in the longer-term. In 2019-20, funding available for investment in apprenticeships in England is over £2.5 billion and we expect to remain within budget this financial year. The recent spending settlement has set the department’s budget for 2020-21. We keep apprenticeships funding policy under review to ensure that apprenticeships continue to be affordable and offer value for money for the taxpayer. We will consider how apprenticeships can continue to meet the changing needs of employers as part of the forthcoming Spending Review.</p>

answer text <p>The Department seeks to recover benefit overpayments as quickly as possible without creating any undue financial hardship to the claimant. The initial rate of repayment applied for the recovery of a benefit overpayment is calculated based on three factors:</p><p> </p><ul><li>How the overpayment occurred (through either fraud or error).</li><li>Whether the claimant is in work.</li><li>Whether any other deductions are applied to their Universal Credit award which might affect the amount that can be deducted.</li></ul><p>The Department understands that claimants’ individual circumstances can vary widely. If a claimant contacts the Department to say that they cannot afford the proposed rate of repayment, we will discuss this with the claimant and can re-evaluate their repayment rate. This re-evaluation will be based on income and expenditure, alongside internal data and the industry standard credit information we can access, with the aim of agreeing a sustainable rate of repayment.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK became a party to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2009. As a signatory to the convention, the UK remains committed to the progressive realisation of the rights for disabled people that it sets out. The Equality Act 2010 enshrines the rights of people in England, Scotland and Wales with any of nine protected characteristics to live free from discrimination, harassment or victimisation and have equal opportunities in domestic law. It systematically ensures consideration of the rights of disabled people by public authorities, at both national and local levels, through the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED).</p><p> </p> more like this
