unstar this property answer text <p>Secondary schools on the Isle of Wight face a range of complex and longstanding challenges similar to those faced by schools in other coastal areas. For example, they face difficulties in recruiting high quality teachers, particularly at senior levels. Inadequate school improvement support provided by the local authority in the past compounded further the difficulties faced by schools on the island.</p><br /><p>The Department for Education’s latest data (2013/14) shows that the main specific reasons for fixed term exclusions in secondary schools on the Isle of Wight are: persistent disruptive behaviour; verbal abuse/threatening behaviour against an adult; and physical assault against a pupil.</p><br /><p>This government has acted decisively to improve educational performance on the island. In July 2013 the Department for Education directed the Isle of Wight Council to enter into a five year strategic partnership with Hampshire County Council which has a sound track record of educational performance. Under this arrangement the proportion of pupils achieving five A*-C GCSEs including English and mathematics has increased at two maintained secondary schools since 2014.</p><br /><p>To help bring talented new teachers onto the island, Teach First has commenced a pilot in three secondary schools on the Isle of Wight which they intend to expand next year.</p><p>The Regional Schools Commissioner for the South East and South London is working to support and challenge the island’s academies and academy sponsors, particularly the Academies Enterprise Trust, to ensure improvements in their performance continue, and that recent changes in school leadership lead to sustained progress.</p><p>Fixed-term exclusions in Isle of Wight secondary schools have fallen faster than the national average, from 1,136 (14.1% of the school population) in 2012/13 to 898 (11.8%of the school population) in 2013/14.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We understand this question to refer to non-levy apprenticeship procured contracts. Under these contracts delivery started from 1 January 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) requires all providers that subcontract to comply with its apprenticeship funding rules (attached). These rules include that providers must carry out due diligence checks on potential subcontractors. In addition, they must not use the delivery subcontractor that they assess is unsuitable, or whose quality of delivery is demonstrably inadequate.</p><p>Providers must manage and monitor all of their subcontractors to make sure that high quality delivery is taking place which meets the funding rules. This includes carrying out a regular and substantial programme of quality-assurance checks on the apprenticeship training and on-programme assessment provided by subcontractors.</p><p>The ESFA also requires all subcontractors with aggregate apprenticeship delivery of over £100,000 per year to successfully apply to its register of apprenticeship training providers.</p>
