star this property answer text ​In June 2016 the Human Rights Council published a report detailing the horrific extent of trafficking of Yezidi women within Iraq and Syria. We do not have any evidence to suggest that Yezidi women are being trafficked outside of Iraq and Syria. We continue to work closely with our Global Coalition partners to defeat Daesh, including those in the region. more like this

star this property answer text <p>‘Transforming our Justice System’ sets out the Government’s plans to modernise the justice system and it consults on specific elements of these reform proposals. This includes certain issues that are relevant to the tribunals, such as tribunal panel composition and the provision of ‘assisted digital’ services.</p><p><br> As the noble Lady will be aware, the consultation is available to the public, and anyone with an interest is welcome to feed in their views. Ministry of Justice and HMCTS have engaged directly with the judiciary, who are fundamental to the success of reform, in considering the operational implications of the reform proposals. They have also engaged and worked with other relevant Government departments, key legal institutions, and a range of stakeholders with an interest in disability and mental health. These discussions are ongoing and will continue as the plans are further developed and implemented.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to supporting small and medium-sized employers to take on apprentices. We know that nearly 95% of current employers with apprentices are small or medium-sized and that around 60% of all apprentices are employed by small and medium-sized employers <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/555052/Size_and_Industry_of_Businesses_with_Apprentices_Final_Pdf.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/555052/Size_and_Industry_of_Businesses_with_Apprentices_Final_Pdf.pdf</a>). <br> <br> Under new funding policy from May 2017, smaller employers that don't pay the apprenticeship levy will pay a co-investment rate of only 10% towards the costs of apprenticeship training. We are waiving this co-investment requirement for employers with fewer than 50 employees, when they recruit a 16-18 year old or a 19-24 year old formerly in care or with an Education and Health Care plan</p><p><br> As part of the development of funding policy we have considered the potential impact that requiring co-investment will have on starts at small and medium-sized employers. This may cause a small initial fall in demand until employers adapt to the new system. By making sure smaller employers understand the benefits of apprenticeships; that the process of accessing them is simple and easy; and additional financial support is available for younger apprentices or those with additional needs, we believe that small and medium sized employers can and will continue to play a critical role in growing apprenticeship opportunities.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to ensuring that apprenticeships are as accessible as possible to all people from all backgrounds.</p><p>We are undertaking a range of activities to increase the awareness amongst young people of the available apprenticeship options, including the four-year Get In Go Far campaign that launched in May 2016. The campaign aims to influence public perceptions, awareness and attitudes towards apprenticeships as a route into a successful career, helping young people aged 14-24 to get the skills they need, and encouraging more young people to apply and more employers to offer apprenticeship opportunities.</p><p>As part of reforms to the routes from compulsory school to employment, we set out new professional and technical routes, which will all lead to employment or degree-level study. This aims to ensure that young people have the education and skills to get into higher paid, long-term employment, including apprenticeships.</p><p>We are increasing numbers of traineeships to further support young people, including those from areas of disadvantage, into apprenticeships and further work. Traineeships show good representation for both BAME and LDD groups (22.6% and 19.7% respectively).</p><p>We remain committed to increasing the proportion of apprenticeships starts from people from BAME communities and have already put in place measures to support this, including: encouraging more people from BAME communities to apply for apprenticeships through communications and marketing; providing BAME role models in the Get in Go Far campaign; helping BAME apprenticeship applicants to have better rates of success in applications; and establishing a network of employer diversity ‘champions’.</p><p>Recommendations from the LLD Taskforce led by Paul Maynard were accepted and published on 11 July, and will benefit a broader group of disabled apprentices. Work has begun on its implementation.</p>
