star this property answer text <p>The government has been clear that the Office for Students (OfS) should take firm and robust action to ensure that threats to academic integrity are tackled. We are determined to beat the cheats who threaten the integrity of our higher education (HE) system.</p><p> </p><p>The OfS requires HE providers to design courses that enable the reliable assessment of a student’s genuine achievements. Students are nearly always obligated by their provider to sign a ‘student contract’ at the commencement of their studies. The contract sets out acceptable student behaviours. Many contracts contain a reference to plagiarism and academic fraud. Many also set out possible sanctions that students may face if they are found to have broken the contract.</p><p> </p><p>As independent and autonomous bodies, HE providers have discretion when imposing sanctions, provided that those sanctions are authorised by the contract. The most recent guidance from the Quality Assurance Agency highlights the importance of severe sanctions of suspension or expulsion if ‘extremely serious academic misconduct’ has been discovered.</p><p> </p><p>HE providers' approaches to tackling cheating include deduction of marks, no credit for the work in question, permanent exclusion for a second offence or immediate expulsion depending on seriousness.</p><p> </p><p>In March, the government challenged PayPal to stop processing payments for ‘essay mills’. PayPal is now working with businesses associated with essay-writing services to ensure its platform is not used to facilitate deceptive and fraudulent practices in education.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, our recently published Education Technology Strategy challenged technology companies to identify how anti-cheating software can tackle the growth of essay mills and stay one step ahead of the cheats.

The content was developed with industry experts to better equip pupils with the knowledge and skills they need to become active creators of digital technology.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the Industrial Strategy, the government has committed substantial spending on mathematics, digital and technical education to increase the take-up and better teaching of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects in schools. For example, in November 2018 we launched the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE), backed by £84 million of new funding. The NCCE is run by a coalition of STEM Learning, the British Computing Society and Raspberry Pi and supported by industry.</p><p> </p><p>The NCCE is delivering a comprehensive programme of continuing professional development to improve the teaching of computing and increase participation in computer science at GCSE and A level, particularly amongst girls. We expect that this, in turn, will help equip these young people with the knowledge they need to pursue a career in the technology sector.</p><p> </p><p>We are also improving careers advice in schools so that young people are aware of the high quality options available for both technical and academic routes into digital careers and they have access to information about the variety of careers that digital technology pathways have to offer. STEM activities, including employer talks and work visits, are built into school career programmes and the Careers &amp; Enterprise Company funds some opportunities for young people to meet a wide range of STEM employers, which include those from the technology sector.</p>
