star this property answer text <p>The Department started to collect data on asbestos management in schools in 2016. All state-funded schools in England were invited to participate in the voluntary data collection and 25% responded. The findings were published in a report on GOV.UK in February 2017, but the data collection did not include information about how much asbestos had been removed from the school estate.</p><p> </p><p>The Department launched a second data collection, the Asbestos Management Assurance Process, in March 2018, to help develop a more comprehensive understanding of asbestos management in the school estate which does include a question on asbestos removal. This data collection has just closed and responses are being analysed. The Department intends to publish the findings from this report in spring 2019.</p><p> </p><p>To help local authorities, governing bodies and academy trusts to meet their legal duties and manage asbestos effectively, the Department refers to advice from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). In February 2017, the Department also published ‘Asbestos Management in Schools’ guidance. The HSE advice is clear that if asbestos is unlikely to be damaged or disturbed, then it is best managed in situ. Although, the Department is also clear that when asbestos does pose a risk to safety and cannot be effectively managed in situ, it should be removed.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2015, the Department has allocated £6 billion to those responsible for school buildings and for essential maintenance and improvements, including removing or encapsulating asbestos when it is the safest course of action to do so. In addition, through the Priority School Building Programme, the Department is rebuilding or refurbishing buildings in the worst condition in over 500 schools across the country. Asbestos was a factor in selecting buildings for the programme.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The government takes any form of violence and sexual harassment, including in higher education, extremely seriously. The department meets with individual universities and representative bodies on a regular basis to discuss a range of issues relating to student welfare. In addition, the department holds regular meetings with Universities UK (UUK) and the Office for Students (OfS) specifically on matters of sexual harassment and misconduct in higher education, including in relation to progress on the implementation of the recommendations of the UUK Taskforce’s on sexual violence, harassment and hate crime affecting university students.</p><p>Since the publication of these recommendations in 2016, a total investment of £4.7 million, match funded by higher education providers, has been invested by the OfS and its predecessor, the Higher Education Funding Council for England, in 119 safeguarding projects; £2.45 million of which was given to 63 projects specifically focussed on tackling sexual and gender-based violence in higher education. This work remains a priority for the department, which is why my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State’s guidance for the financial year 2019-20 asks the OfS to continue to support the student experience, including a focus on harassment and hate crime.</p>

The STPCD requires that teachers be available for work on 195 days each year, of which 190 are teaching days (the other five being for INSET); teachers are also required to be available for 1265 hours each year to be allocated reasonably across these days. The 1265 hours make up the directed hours, which are available for headteachers to direct the work of teachers.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to the directed time, teachers must also work &quot;such reasonable additional hours as may be necessary to enable the effective discharge of the teacher’s professional duties&quot;.</p><p> </p><p>Non-maintained schools, including academies and free schools, are responsible for determining the pay and conditions of their staff themselves. Such schools are not obliged to follow the statutory arrangements set out in the STPCD, although they may still choose to do so if they wish.</p><p>The Department collects robust information about teachers’ working hours in both the Teaching and Learning International Survey and the Teacher Workload Survey, including time spent on teaching and non-teaching activities.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The availability of level 6+ apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships has grown significantly, with 78 standards now available at levels 6 and 7, of which 60 include a degree. The National Apprenticeship Service works with local partners and through an employer engagement campaign across the most deprived local authority areas (65 in total) to make sure that apprenticeships are available in disadvantaged areas at all levels.</p><p>We have also recently launched our Opportunities Through Apprenticeships project, working with local authorities, employers and providers in Portsmouth, South Tyneside, Nottingham and Torbay to increase participation in high-value apprenticeships and drive social mobility. We have supported degree apprenticeships for those from disadvantaged backgrounds through the Degree Apprenticeship Development Fund.</p><p>In 2017, we launched the second phase of the fund to expand degree apprenticeships and to widen access to the opportunities they offer. The fund also incorporated measures to expand provision in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and improve gender diversity in STEM apprenticeships. It also supported a range of awareness-raising activities focusing on higher-level and degree apprenticeships, including 30 co-branded Universities and Colleges Admissions Service/National Apprenticeship Service careers fairs offering 240,000 Year 12 students access to information on high quality technical education options at all levels.</p>
