star this property answer text <p>Widening access and participation in higher education is a priority for this government. Everyone with the capability to succeed in higher education should have the opportunity to benefit from a university education, regardless of background or where they grew up.</p><p> </p><p>This year, record rates of English 18 year olds, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, have entered full-time university. However, more could and should be done. That is why in our recent guidance to the Office for Students, we asked them to continue in its efforts to secure greater and faster progress in ensuring that students from disadvantaged and under-represented groups can access and successfully participate in higher education, including at the most selective providers.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, a new transparency condition requires higher education providers to publish application, offer, acceptance, non-continuation and attainment rates by socio-economic background, gender and ethnicity. It will provide greater transparency and help drive fairness on admissions and outcomes.</p><p> </p><p>Prior attainment is a critical factor, and the government has asked higher education providers to take on a more direct role in helping to raise attainment in schools as part of their outreach activity. All providers are expected to help raise attainment and support school improvement, including through school sponsorship and by establishing new state schools.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>In January 2019 the Department launched the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy which outlines four key areas for reform and investment. These include creating the right climate for leaders to establish supportive school cultures, transforming support for early career teachers, building a career structure that remains attractive to teachers as their careers develop, and making it easier for people to become teachers.</p><p> </p><p>Designed collaboratively with the education sector, the strategy commits the Government to creating the strongest development and progression opportunities for teachers working in the schools and areas that need them most. The full 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><p>As part of this, the Department is piloting two new financial incentives which encourage individuals to teach in disadvantaged areas. The Department is offering two uplifted mathematics early career payments of £7,500 rather than £5,000 to those who complete initial teacher training (ITT) and go on to teach in 39 high-need local authorities. It is also piloting teachers’ student loan reimbursement for languages and science teachers in 25 high need local authorities.</p><p>The Department is also investing more in challenging areas to create enhanced development and progression opportunities. For example, the Department is investing £20 million in scholarships to drive take up of the reformed leadership national professional qualifications in the most challenging areas.</p><p>The Department’s investment in Teach First (TF) also supports recruitment for schools in disadvantaged areas. The department funds TF to deliver an employment based route into teaching, with trainees completing a two year leadership development programme. It is a premium route into teaching, attracting high calibre trainees into the profession. In 2016/17, 93% of TF trainees had a 2:1 or above, compared with 73% across post graduate routes. These high quality trainees are placed in schools in disadvantaged areas that might otherwise struggle to attract this quality of applicant.</p><p>The Department recognises that some schools have greater issues with recruitment and retention than others. That is why it is delivering a £30 million investment in tailored support to get more great teachers into schools in disadvantaged areas that are facing challenges with teacher supply.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The 2015 Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice sets out high expectations of schools, alternative provision, and colleges about how they identify and meet the needs of pupils with SEND, including those with speech, language and communication needs. The Code emphasises that schools, including alternative provision, should work closely with their local authority and other providers to commission specialist services directly, such as speech and language therapists.</p><p> </p><p>The department does not collect data on which pupil referral units employ speech and language therapists. Commissioners of alternative provision should ensure that there is a clear plan for pupils’ progression and keep the arrangements under regular review so that they can be adapted in response to the needs of the child or young person. Where an alternative provider has concerns that a child or young person may have a speech and language difficulty that is not being appropriately supported, then they should raise their concerns with the commissioner and agree how these potential needs will be assessed and supported.</p><p> </p>

We subsequently extended the programme over a total of 6 academic years. Funding for the scheme, secured through the last Spending Review, has now come to an end.</p><p>We have been working closely with FE providers and representative organisations to understand the current challenges faced around teacher recruitment and retention in the sector.
