star this property answer text <p>The Church of England provides a wide range of pastoral care through its national network of 12,600 parishes and 18,000 active ordained clergy assisted by 10,000 licensed lay ministers. This care is offered to all regardless of Church affiliation or religious belief. The most effective pastoral care builds a relationship through which a person can be accompanied through difficult situations - rather than offering a service in which the person becomes the client.</p><p>Pastoral care at parish level is extended to women with unwanted pregnancies on the basis that ‘<em>Every possible support, especially by Church members, needs to be given to those who are pregnant in difficult circumstances and care, support and compassion must be shown to all whether or not they continue with their pregnancy.</em>’ (General Synod July 2017: written answer was given by the Chair of Mission and Public Affairs Council in response to a question on the 50<sup>th</sup> anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act).</p>

star this property answer text <p>The quality of further education (FE) provision is assessed by Ofsted under their published inspection framework. Currently the 3 major FE colleges in Wigan local authority area, including Leigh, are rated by Ofsted as Outstanding or Good for Overall Effectiveness.</p><p> </p><p>In July 2015, the government announced a rolling programme of around 40 local area reviews, to be completed by March 2017, covering all FE colleges in England. The reviews were designed to ensure that colleges are financially stable into the long term, that they are run efficiently, and are well-positioned to meet the present and future needs of individual students and the demands of employers. In November 2016, the Greater Manchester Area Review report was published at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/greater-manchester-further-education-area-review-report" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/greater-manchester-further-education-area-review-report</a>. This review did not recommend the need for any significant structural changes for further education provision in the Wigan area.</p><p> </p><p>The new ‘College Oversight: Support and Intervention’ document<em>, </em>which was published at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/college-oversight-support-and-intervention" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/college-oversight-support-and-intervention</a> on 1 April 2019, sets out how we will work with FE colleges to identify financial and quality issues early. It sets out the support and advice available to colleges when they need it from the FE Commissioner and the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), who assess financial and quality issues on an ongoing basis. This support includes the potential for FE Commissioner-led local provision reviews, the need for which may arise from a number of challenges that affect a college and/or further education provision in a local area, such as:</p><ul><li>Weakness or failure of existing providers (including risk of insolvency)</li><li>Increased competition</li><li>Declining learner recruitment</li><li>Inadequate quality</li><li>Significant financial challenges</li><li>Changes in local demographics and/or local skills needs</li></ul><p> </p><p>The ESFA works with local authorities where there are concerns about gaps in suitable and accessible local FE provision for young people. Local authorities have broad duties to encourage, enable and assist young people to participate in education or training, including to secure sufficient suitable education and training provision for all young people in their area who are over compulsory school age but under 19 or aged 19 to 25 and for whom an Education, Health and Care plan is maintained, as set out at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/participation-of-young-people-education-employment-and-training" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/participation-of-young-people-education-employment-and-training</a>. A concern has not been formally raised to ESFA by Wigan local authority in respect of adequacy of further education provision in Leigh.</p><p> </p><p>From August 2019, responsibility for the funding and adequacy of adult FE provision for residents in Wigan (including Leigh) will pass to Greater Manchester Combined Authority under devolution arrangements.</p>
