star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to tackling our shortage of STEM skills so we can grow the workforce we need for a dynamic economy. We are doing this by investing in programmes to increase the take-up of maths, by incentivising schools using the recently launched advanced maths premium and supporting better teaching of maths, physics and computing in schools, including a new £84 million programme to improve computing teaching.</p><p> </p><p>To improve the development of technical STEM skills, the Government is introducing T levels, which will be developed with employers, and provide progression opportunities into skilled work or higher level study, including degrees.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Poor body image is a factor in eating disorders and other mental health problems. The additional £1.4 billion the Government is making available for children and young people’s mental health services up to 2020, includes £150 million specifically targeted at improving support for young people with eating disorders. The green paper ‘Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision’ set out proposals for new mental health support teams to provide further trained and clinically-supervised support to young people in school.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has also funded the provision of information and advice to schools. MindEd (<a href="https://www.minded.org.uk/" target="_blank">https://www.minded.org.uk/</a>) is a free online portal that provides training for all adults working with children and young people about mental health problems. It includes specific information on eating disorders. The Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Association has also produced advice on how to teach pupils in all four Key Stages about mental health. This includes specific advice on age-appropriate teaching about body image and eating disorders in secondary school.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has sought views, via a thorough engagement process, on the content of Relationships Education and Relationships and Sex Education, and on the status of PSHE – including on issues such as body image and eating disorders. The findings will inform draft regulations and guidance for schools, which will be subject to further consultation.</p>

star this property answer text <p>I held a meeting on 12 March with interested MPs and representatives from a leading charity within the field, and have scheduled another meeting with that charity and further interested MPs on 20 March. During frequent visits to schools I engage with teachers and students and discuss a range of topics including sign language.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has introduced a number of recent changes to GCSEs, AS and A levels in England that will affect schools in the coming years. We know that extensive changes need time to settle in, and that school leaders will want stability to bring in the new qualifications. There are no plans to introduce new GCSEs, AS or A levels in this Parliament.</p><p> </p><p>Schools are free to teach British Sign Language and there are existing qualifications available which schools can enter pupils into at any point of their school career. These include a Level 1 award, Level 2, 3 and 4 certificates and a Level 6 NVQ certificate. British Sign Language is also now an alternative to a Level 1 and Level 2 qualification in English when studying an apprenticeship, where British Sign Language is the apprentice’s primary language. This enables those who use British Sign Language to complete their apprenticeship without having to achieve another English qualification, such as GCSE or Functional Skills.</p>
