The principal means is by way of a positive recommendation from the independent Parole Board, which falls to officials either to accept or reject on behalf of the Secretary of State, under agreed delegated authority and in accordance with policy agreed by the Secretary of State. However, ISPs may also apply to progress to open conditions without a positive recommendation from the Parole Board being sought, where they can show exceptional progress in reducing their risk. Each application is determined on its merits under agreed delegated authority by officials in the Offender Management and Public Protection Group in the Ministry of Justice.</p><p> </p><p>Determinate sentenced prisoners are assessed for their suitability for open conditions by experienced prison staff with relevant input from offender managers and other professionals within the prison. The assessment will consider the extent to which the prisoner has reduced identified risks and any intelligence or other information that provides evidence of the prisoner’s trustworthiness for conditions of very low security. Determinate sentence prisoners should not generally be moved to open prison if they have more than two years to serve to their earliest release date, unless assessment of a prisoner’s individual risks and needs support earlier categorisation to open conditions. Such cases must have the reasons for their categorisation fully documented and confirmed in writing by the Governing Governor.</p><p> </p><p>All those located in open conditions have been rigorously risk assessed and their risks have been deemed manageable in open conditions.</p><p> </p><p>The public have understandable concerns about the failure of a small minority of prisoners to return from temporary release from open prison. Keeping the public safe is our priority and we will not allow the actions of these offenders to undermine public confidence in the prison system. The number of temporary release failures remains very low; less that one failure in every 1,000 temporary releases and about five in every 100,000 temporary releases involving alleged offending, but we take each and every incident seriously. The Government has already ordered immediate changes to tighten up the system as a matter of urgency. Prisoners are now no longer eligible for transfer to open conditions if they have previously absconded from open prisons, or if they have failed to return or reoffended whilst released on temporary licence, unless there are exceptional circumstances.</p>

star this property answer text <p>To support employers to take up best practice, the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas), working with my department, has published online guidance to managers on the practical steps they can take to enhance the wellbeing of their staff. This guidance was drawn from material gathered in research into the relationship between worker wellbeing and business performance published by my department on 29 October 2014. This can be found at: <a href="http://www.acas.org.uk/workplacewellbeing" target="_blank">www.acas.org.uk/workplacewellbeing</a>.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>That research shows that workplaces with “highly satisfied” employees have higher labour productivity, higher quality of output, and higher overall performance.

star this property answer text <p>The following table provides estimates for the number of teachers needed in each academic year from 2016/17 to 2020/21. This need for teachers will be met through a combination of new trainees, those returning to the profession and those entering the state-funded sector in England for the first time.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td> </td><td><p><strong>2016/17</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2017/18</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2018/19</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2019/20</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2020/21</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Primary</strong></p></td><td><p>30,200</p></td><td><p>29,200</p></td><td><p>28,400</p></td><td><p>27,200</p></td><td><p>28,000</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Secondary</strong></p></td><td><p>23,500</p></td><td><p>24,200</p></td><td><p>24,900</p></td><td><p>25,100</p></td><td><p>24,500</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><em>Source: Teacher Supply Model</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Department for Education uses the Teacher Supply Model (TSM) to calculate the optimum number of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) places required to match the future supply of teachers to the estimated demand for qualified teachers within the state-funded sector in England. The National College of Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) use this information to inform their allocation of ITT places to teacher training providers.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The estimates for the future demand for teachers use the projected number of pupils in schools, assumed Pupil Teacher Ratios (PTRs) and our best estimates for the number of teachers required to implement the Department’s policy initiatives. The model also takes into account other flows within the existing stock of teachers such as those leaving the profession or retiring as well as those expected to return to teaching in the state-funded sector.</p><p> </p><p>The Department forecasts the need for teacher trainees one year in advance in line with the annual ITT allocation decisions. However, the TSM also forecasts teacher demand over ten years to provide an overview of long term trends.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Whilst the Department estimates future teacher demand, decision-making taken at school level determines the actual number of teachers required. As with any forecast, the uncertainty increases the further we look into the future.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Department has published estimates of teacher demand in part 1 of the TSM, which is published online at: <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-supply-model" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-supply-model</a></p><p> </p>
