star this property answer text <p>We have protected the base rate of funding for 16 to 19 year olds for all types of providers until the end of the current spending review period in 2020. We have been allocated £1.5 billion for the Adult Education Budget for each year of the 2015 Spending Review period to engage adults to participate and develop the skills and learning they need up to level 3 to equip them for work, an apprenticeship or further learning.</p><p>We are actively exploring the efficiency and resilience of further education and will be assessing how far existing and forecast funding and regulatory structures enable high quality provision. This work will align closely with the Post-18 Funding Review in particular, to ensure a coherent vision for further and higher education. As with other areas of departmental spending, further education funding from 2020 onwards will be considered as part of the next spending review.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There have been 338,400 apprenticeship starts since May 2017 of which 132,900 were on new apprenticeship standards. The fall in starts has been greatest in Level 2 while we have seen the numbers of starts on higher level standards (Level 4 and above) rise by 12.5 per cent so far this year.</p><p> </p><p>Starts on new better quality apprenticeships standards have increased rapidly. Over 40 per cent of individuals completing an apprenticeship are now starting on standards, compared to just 2.5 per cent this time last year. Higher quality training leads to increased productivity, at every level.</p><p> </p><p>The department is working with employers to make sure that they can take advantage of apprenticeships. We have already extended the amount of time employers have to spend their levy (from 18 to 24 months), and have introduced transfers, to allow employers to transfer up to 10 per cent of their annual value of levy funds to other employers and recently announced that the cap on the number of employers to whom transfers can be made has been lifted.</p><p> </p><p>The Institute for Apprenticeships has introduced its Faster and Better campaign to speed up and simplify the approval of standards development: <a href="https://www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/about/faster-and-better/" target="_blank">https://www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/about/faster-and-better/</a>. 50 standards have been approved in the last three months (April-June 2018). Over 300 standards are already approved, in all sectors of the economy - with more on the way. We have run extensive communications campaigns since the reforms were introduced and will be commencing the latest phase of our ‘Get in Go Far’ marketing campaign shortly.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The numbers and identities of children educated at home are not collected centrally.</p><p>For that reason it is not possible to make any overall assessment of the education they receive compared with children attending school. The parents of children of compulsory school age are responsible for ensuring that they receive an efficient full-time education suitable to the child’s age, ability, aptitudes and any special educational needs. The government has made it clear that it believes that the majority of parents undertake this task successfully and with enthusiasm. When the home education being provided is not suitable, the local authority has power to intervene. The existing framework for intervention by local authorities is currently under review. The department is now considering the responses made to the recent consultation on revised guidance for local authorities on the most effective use of their powers in relation to home education, and an associated call for evidence, which closed on 2 July 2018.</p>

This major four-year campaign aims to influence public perceptions, awareness and attitudes towards apprenticeships as a route into a successful career, encouraging more young people to apply and more employers to offer apprenticeship opportunities. As of 24 August, there were over 560,000 visitors to the campaign website, with an average 35% of these being driven to view opportunities on the Find an Apprenticeship website.</p><p> </p><p>The National Careers Service provides independent, professional advice on careers, skills and the labour market, including on the benefits of apprenticeships and how to apply for vacancies. The service is available on-line, over the telephone, via web chat, e-mail, text and online forums. A face-to-face service is available to adults aged 19 and over (or those aged 18 years plus if on out-of-work benefits or offenders in custody).</p><p> </p><p>The statutory guidance for schools on careers guidance and inspiration was updated and published in March 2015 and is now in force. This is clear that schools should give employers and other providers delivering apprenticeships the opportunity to inform pupils directly, on school premises, about what they offer. It emphasises that apprenticeships and university offer two equally effective routes to a successful career.</p>
