The letter reaffirmed our commitment to supporting more effective commissioning of communication support.</p><p>The NHS long-term plan recognises the importance of speech and language therapists (SLTs) and proposes that local areas design and implement models of care that are age appropriate, closer to home and bring together physical and mental health services.</p><p>Our national workforce group for allied health professionals (AHPs) will be making specific recommendations, in particular for those professionals in short supply, such as SLTs. The chief allied health professions officer will further develop the national AHP strategy into action to focus on the delivery of the NHS long-term plan.</p><p>We are aware of the concerns about the adequacy of funding for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in England, including those with speech, language and communication needs. On 3 May 2019, my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education announced a call for evidence from schools, colleges and local authorities to consider how the SEND and alternative provision financial arrangements in England could be improved.

star this property answer text <p>​Sanctions are designed to effect a change in behaviour through coercing or constraining an individual or entity, or sending a clear political signal of international discontent at particular behaviour. Linking behaviour change to sanctions explicitly is challenging as it is difficult to judge the extent of the influence of sanctions alone as they are always deployed as part of a broader strategy, accompanied by other policy tools. The majority of sanctions implemented by the UK are EU and UN sanctions. It is difficult to assess the personal opinions of the political leadership of countries which have been sanctioned; however, sanctions are carefully targeted and not intended to be punitive in nature.</p> more like this

The travel advice for China and Iran contains specific information for British dual nationals. The FCO advises British-Iranian dual nationals against all travel to Iran. The assistance the FCO can provide to British nationals is set out in the public guide, &quot;Support for British nationals abroad: a guide&quot;, which also contains information on how we can help dual nationals. Consular assistance is tailored to the individual circumstances of each case, though the FCO cannot normally help dual nationals when they are in the country of their other nationality.

star this property answer text <p>Further Education (FE) providers are private sector institutions, independent from the government, and so are responsible for setting their own staff pay and conditions. However, we acknowledge that FE faces cost pressures, and that this can impact on teacher pay and workload. The department will be making a strong case for increased FE funding, including for investment in FE teacher recruitment and retention ahead of the Spending Review.</p><p>We value our FE teachers and all the excellent work they do, which is why, since 2013-14, we have invested over £140 million in FE teachers and leaders. This includes workforce development through the independent Education and Training Foundation.</p><p>The department has worked closely with the FE sector, including providers and representative bodies, to understand the challenges for teacher recruitment and retention, and see where we can provide appropriate support. We have also commissioned research on the impact of previous incentives which is attached and available at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/incentive-programmes-for-the-recruitment-and-retention-of-teachers-in-further-education-fe" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/incentive-programmes-for-the-recruitment-and-retention-of-teachers-in-further-education-fe</a>.</p><p>Research has also been conducted looking at comparable professions which is attached and available at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/identifying-fe-teacher-comparators" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/identifying-fe-teacher-comparators</a>. These research projects have been commissioned to inform our planning for the upcoming Spending Review.</p><p>Ultimately, we know that lower teacher pay makes recruitment and retention more difficult in FE when compared to school teaching and relevant industries. We also know that workload is often one of the main reasons given for leaving the profession. Our Workload Reduction Toolkit, developed by system leaders, teachers and other experts (though aimed primarily at school teachers and leaders) can also be used by FE providers. The Toolkit is attached and available at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/reducing-workload-in-your-school" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/reducing-workload-in-your-school</a>.</p><p>More widely, we know that ensuring teacher wellbeing is essential, which is why my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education announced earlier this year the establishment of an expert advisory group on wellbeing. This group brings together experts from the wellbeing, schools and FE fields who are providing expert advice and working with us to look at what government, FE colleges and others can do to promote staff wellbeing.</p>
