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>

star this property answer text <p>The department has funded the Autism Education Trust (AET) since 2012 to deliver autism awareness training for early years, school and post-16 education staff. To date, the AET has provided training, through sub-contracted ‘hubs’, for more than 150,000 education staff. The training is available not just for head teachers, teachers and teaching assistants, but also for school governors and support staff such as receptionists, dining hall staff and caretakers, encouraging a ‘whole school’ approach to supporting pupils with autism. The Trust has also published national autism standards for educational settings and a competency framework for those working with children and young people with autism.</p><p>In addition to our work with the AET, the Department for Education has also supported a number of initiatives to support schools in meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We have funded the Whole School SEND consortium to develop a range of resources to support education practitioners in identifying and addressing weaknesses in provision for pupils with SEND, including a guide on the effective deployment of Teaching Assistants <a href="http://www.tareview.com/" target="_blank">http://www.tareview.com/</a>. The Whole School SEND consortium is also training SEND reviewers and is developing models of good practice in SEND provision for strategic leaders and for school governors, which will be available early next year. We have recently published a review of the research evidence and an interactive ‘what works’ resource to help schools in supporting those with SEND. These materials are freely available on the <a href="http://www.sendgateway.org.uk/" target="_blank">nasen’s SEND Gateway</a> and the <a href="https://send.excellencegateway.org.uk/" target="_blank">Education &amp; Training Foundation Excellence Gateway</a>.</p>
