star this property answer text <p>By the time the early career reforms are fully in place, the Department anticipates investing at least £130 million every year to support the early career framework (ECF) delivery in full. Additional funding will be directed to individual schools, based on the number of early career teachers in each school, to ensure that this is funded in full, in every school.</p><p>Teacher recruitment and retention is a high priority for the Government, and we are therefore committed to taking quick action. The Spending Review 2019 will set wider Departmental budgets and confirm the precise funding details for the ECF.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The latest Initial Teacher Training (ITT) census shows that postgraduate recruitment is at its highest level since 2011/12<sup><sup>[1]</sup></sup>, with 29,255 postgraduate trainees recruited this academic year. The Department’s financial incentives package makes a substantial contribution to this. We offer bursaries and scholarships of up to £28,000 for priority subjects, working in partnership with professional bodies such as the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry.</p><p>The Department’s analysis demonstrates the effectiveness of the current financial offer. As the National Audit Office have acknowledged, the Department found that an increase of £1,000 in bursary value led to a 2.9% increase in applications for postgraduate ITT. The vast majority of bursary recipients go straight from training to the classroom. 94% of 2016/17 postgraduate trainee teachers who successfully completed training in a bursary subject were in a teaching post six months later.</p><p>To ensure that the Department is spending money effectively, it is piloting two new financial incentives. The first is a phased bursary for mathematics teachers which comprises a lower bursary during training, followed by early-career payments in the third and fifth years of teaching. The second is a student loan reimbursement scheme for languages and science teachers. Both pilots are designed to encourage talented teachers to remain in the profession.</p><p>[1] Teach First recruitment has been included in ITT census data since 2015/16.</p>

Effective, evidence-based CPD strengthens practice, builds confidence and, crucially, improves outcomes for pupils.</p><p>For CPD to be effective, however, it must be tailored to the needs of the individual. That is why decisions relating to CPD, including budgets, rightly rest with schools, headteachers and teachers.</p><p>The Department recognises that more can be done to improve the take-up of high quality evidence-based CPD in schools. That is why the CPD Expert Group has re-convened to develop recommendations that ensure that all teachers have access to high quality, meaningful support and CPD, drawing on the Standard for Teachers’ Professional Development (published in July 2016) and the accompanying implementation guide.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Initial teacher training (ITT) providers must design their courses to enable trainees to meet The Teachers’ Standards. These Standards set out the key elements of effective teaching and the minimum expectations for professional practice. In order to become a qualified teacher, trainees must satisfy the Standards, which include a requirement that they have a clear understanding of the needs of all pupils, and are able to use and evaluate distinctive teaching approaches to engage and support them.</p><p> </p><p>The Department published the Framework of Core Content for ITT in July 2016 to further support effective training. The Framework advises that, “ITT providers should ensure Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) training is integrated across the ITT programme”. The Department is currently undertaking an audit of SEND provision across ITT providers, which it will use to produce a best practice guide.</p><p> </p><p>On 28 January 2019, the Department published the Recruitment and Retention strategy and the Early Career Framework (ECF). The ECF provides a two-year improved support package for newly qualified teachers, providing them with support they need to help all pupils succeed and widen access for all - including pupils identified within the four areas of need set out in the SEND code of practice.</p><p> </p><p>Schools and headteachers are best placed to make specific decisions about how to support and improve their teachers, but the Department is assisting schools with this through the national network of teaching schools and the Standard for Teachers’ Professional Development.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The bursaries scheme for maths and English teacher training in further education (FE) was launched in 2013/14 and was initially intended to run for 2 years, to support providers in meeting additional recruitment needs arising from the condition of funding around GCSE resits. We subsequently extended the programme over a total of 6 academic years. Funding for the scheme, secured through the last Spending Review, has now come to an end.</p><p>We have been working closely with FE providers and representative organisations to understand the current challenges faced around teacher recruitment and retention in the sector. We are looking carefully at how best we can support the FE sector to meet existing and emerging workforce challenges, and will be making the case for the necessary investment as part of the forthcoming Spending Review</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Mental health is a priority for this government, which is why we continue to work closely with Universities UK (UUK) on embedding the Step Change programme within the sector. Step Change calls on higher education (HE) leaders to adopt mental health as a strategic priority and adopt a whole-institution approach to mental health, embedding it across all policies, cultures, curricula and practice.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the government actively backs the introduction of a sector-led University Mental Health Charter, launched in June 2018. This will drive up standards in promoting student and staff mental health and wellbeing. It will invite universities to meet high standards of practice, including in areas such as leadership, early intervention and data collection.</p><p> </p><p>HE institutions (HEI) have legal responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 to support students, including those with mental health conditions. It is for HEIs to determine what welfare and counselling services they need to provide to their students to offer that support.</p><p> </p><p>The information requested is not held centrally regarding student suicide. However, in June 2018, the Office for National Statistics released experimental statistics estimating suicide among higher education students in England and Wales which can be found following this link: <a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/articles/estimatingsuicideamonghighereducationstudentsenglandandwalesexperimentalstatistics/2018-06-25" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/articles/estimatingsuicideamonghighereducationstudentsenglandandwalesexperimentalstatistics/2018-06-25</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The government has worked with UUK, the Office for Students, and other stakeholders to develop guidance on measures to help prevent suicide and deal sensitively with issues that may arise when tragedy does occur. This guidance was published in September 2018, ahead of the 2018/19 academic year.</p><p> </p><p>As independent and autonomous bodies, HEIs are responsible for decisions regarding required training for their staff and have a duty of care to their staff, like all employers, as well as to their students.</p>

Ofsted is responsible for testing the quality of teacher training and at their most recent inspection, 99% of all teacher training providers were rated good or outstanding.</p><p> </p><p>The amount of time that primary trainees spend in training on each of the subjects in the national curriculum is not specified by the Government.

This includes religious education.</p><p> </p><p>In July 2016, the Department published a ‘framework of core content for initial teacher training’, further guidance which states that ‘trainees must be conversant with a range of effective subject-specific pedagogical approaches’. The framework also outlines providers’ responsibility to audit trainees’ subject knowledge early in their training and make provision to ensure that trainees have sufficient subject knowledge to satisfy the standard by the end of their training.</p>
