star this property answer text <p>The core academic subjects that make up the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) at GCSE are those which the Russell Group says open more doors to more degrees at A level. Not studying the EBacc prior to age 16 is likely to close down options early by precluding pupils from taking those subjects any further (for example, at A level). They provide a sound basis for a variety of careers beyond the age of 16. These subjects also enrich pupils’ studies and give them a broad general knowledge that will enable them to participate in and contribute to society.</p><p> </p><p>There is evidence that suggests that subject choice at A level directly impacts the under-representation of lower socio-economic groups at high status universities, and that these gaps can be closed by reducing differences in attainment and subject choice at GCSE. The EBacc is therefore key to removing the barriers to ensure that all children are given the same chances through education to succeed.</p><p> </p><p>Since the introduction of the EBacc the proportion of pupils taking this combination of subjects has risen from 22% in 2010 to 38% this year. This includes welcome increases in the proportion of pupils taking EBacc science (up from 63% in 2010 to 95% this year) and history or geography (up from 48% in 2010 to 78% this year). The Department is supporting increases which will further increase the take up of languages, launching a range of initiatives, including a languages Pedagogy Pilot Programme, a Mandarin Excellence Programme, and a package of generous financial incentives to boost teacher supply.</p>

star this property answer text <p>My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State has set out his ambition to halve by 2028 the proportion of five-year-olds who do not achieve the communication and reading skills they need to thrive. On 14 November 2018, he hosted a summit on the ‘home learning environment’, bringing together nearly 100 businesses, charities and public sector organisations to explore longer term opportunities to support parents with early learning at home. At the summit he announced £6.5 million for voluntary and community sector organisations who work with families of young children to support early language development, helping to address and support concerns when they can have the most impact; and to improve the early years education of children with special educational needs and disabilities.</p><p>This builds on the ambitious social mobility action plan ‘Unlocking Talent, Fulfilling Potential’, published in December 2017, which set out £100 million of investment. This includes £50 million to develop more high quality school-based nursery provision to increase the number of good early years places for disadvantaged children; and a £50 million investment in professional development through English Hubs, professional development for early years practitioners, and a dedicated what works fund.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Following our reforms to apprenticeships, we are making significant reforms to technical education, the centrepiece being the introduction of T levels - a high quality and rigorous technical alternative to academic education. T levels will be two-year classroom-based technical training programmes for 16 to 19 year olds, which include a technical qualification, work placement, English and maths and any other components required by employers. The first teaching of T levels will begin in September 2020 with all routes available from September 2022. We will be investing up to an additional £500 million a year on T levels once fully rolled out.</p><p>This builds on our reforms to apprenticeships, making them longer, better, with more off-the-job training and proper assessment at the end. We are also encouraging employers to take on younger apprentices aged 16 to 18, through incentives to employers and training providers. We have also introduced a new careers strategy which sets out how we will go further to make sure that young people can talk regularly to employers and training providers while they are still at school. This includes a new law, requiring all maintained schools and academies to make sure that there is an opportunity for a range of providers to talk to pupils from years 8 to 13 about approved technical education qualifications or apprenticeships, so that they are aware of the different options.</p>

This is being supported by a Teachers Pay Grant of over £500 million covering the difference between the first 1% that schools would have been anticipating under the previous public sector pay cap and the 2018 award.</p><p>The Department has put in place a range of measures, including generous bursaries, worth up to £26,000 for priority subjects, to encourage trainees to take key subjects such as mathematics and physics. The Department is also testing new financial incentives for priority subject teachers. These include early-career payments for new maths teachers and a student loan reimbursement scheme for languages and science teachers.</p><p>The Department invests in a range of programmes to help teachers develop the knowledge and skills required to be successful in moving into school leadership positions. These include the recently strengthened National Professional Qualifications (NPQs), with over £10m made available to help schools in priority areas benefit from this high-quality professional development.</p><p>Earlier this year the Department announced the development of a new strategy to drive recruitment and boost retention of teachers. The strategy will cover a wide range of areas including professional development, workload, career progression, flexible working and entry routes into teaching.</p><p> </p>
