unstar this property answer text <p>The Government attaches great importance to the effective and timely handling of correspondence and written questions. The right of parliamentarians to take up issues directly with the Government is an important part of the democratic process and underlines the accountability of Ministers to Parliament. Each government department has their own protocol on the timelines for correspondence responses to be sent out, and parliamentarians should contact departments if they feel that responses they receive are not timely or effective. My private office is in regular contact with the private offices of my front bench team to ensure that the Lords front bench's correspondence to parliamentarians is answered promptly and effectively.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>It is important that universities focus on ensuring that their graduates have the skills needed, including technical, vocational and transferable skills, to gain a positive outcome from their degree. The higher education regulator, the Office for Students’ (OfS), primary aim is to ensure that higher education delivers positive outcomes for students and it has a regulatory focus to ensure that students are able to progress into employment or further study.</p><p>The government is supporting regional growth and retention of graduates in a number of ways. For example, on 16 May 2019, the OfS announced £5.6 million funding for 15 projects aiming to support the transition to highly skilled employment and improve outcomes for graduates who seek employment in their home region. Details of this can be found here, and are also attached:</p><p><a href="https://www.officeforstudents.org.uk/news-blog-and-events/press-and-media/no-place-like-home/" target="_blank">https://www.officeforstudents.org.uk/news-blog-and-events/press-and-media/no-place-like-home/</a></p><p>Similarly, the UK Research and Innovation “Strength in Places Fund” is a competitive fund for collaborative bids between research institutions and businesses to support significant regional growth through research and innovation. Details can be found here, and are also attached:</p><p><a href="https://www.ukri.org/funding/funding-opportunities/strength-in-places-fund/" target="_blank">https://www.ukri.org/funding/funding-opportunities/strength-in-places-fund/</a></p><p>University Enterprise Zones are specific geographical areas where universities and business work together to increase local growth and innovation. As part of Budget 2018, £10 million was announced to fund up to 10 further zones. Details can be found here, and are also attached:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/university-enterprise-zones/university-enterprise-zones" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/university-enterprise-zones/university-enterprise-zones</a></p><p>Furthermore, the government part funds the National Centre for Universities and Business Collaboration, which helps universities and businesses across the UK work together. This is important to support the creation of a cycle of economic growth, providing jobs and quality of life for highly skilled graduates.</p>
