star this property answer text <p>Recruiting science teachers is a top priority for the Government. The Department has put in place a range of measures, including increased generous bursaries, worth up to £26,000 for physics, biology and chemistry to encourage even more talented individuals into teaching. Our prestigious scholarship scheme will also continue, offering a package of tailored support and £28,000 tax-free for scholars in physics, chemistry and computer science.</p><p>The Department is also testing new financial incentives to boost recruitment and retention, which include a student loan reimbursement pilot for science teachers in 25 local authorities that are most in need. Around 1,700 science teachers a year will be eligible for this pilot scheme.</p><p>In addition to this, the Department has developed a number of further initiatives to encourage more science specialists into initial teacher training (ITT). These include targeted marketing campaigns; providing support to potential science ITT applicants to increase the proportion of successful applications; and a programme to recruit high calibre post-doctoral researchers who have detailed subject knowledge and a passion to teach physics in the schools where they are most needed.</p><p><br> The new National Mathematics and Physics school-centred ITT plans to offer high quality teacher training, in collaboration with partner schools across the country and Buckingham University, led by maths and physics experts in partnership with the Institute of Physics and Mathematical Association.</p><p> </p><p>The Department provides the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics international Teacher Recruitment Programme to support state-funded secondary schools in England with recruiting to physics vacancies. Through this programme, schools can recruit qualified teachers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the USA to teach physics.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We take the operational resilience of the finance sector and any detrimental impacts on consumers very seriously. HM Treasury works closely with the Bank of England, the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) (collectively the ‘Financial Authorities’) to assess, test and improve the operational resilience of the sector and to respond to any major disruption, including to payment systems.</p><p> </p><p>In July 2018, the PRA and the FCA published a joint Discussion Paper on an approach to improve the operational resilience of firms and financial market infrastructures, including to payment systems. The Authorities will use responses to this to inform supervisory activity and future policy-making to support firms’ and FMIs’ operational resilience[i].</p><p> </p><p>The Financial Authorities also have a single mechanism, the Authorities’ Response Framework, to coordinate a response to incidents affecting the finance sector. The Financial Authorities regularly exercise incident response frameworks with the sector to assess their effectiveness and identify improvements. The Bank of England held a sector resilience exercise (SIMEX18) in November 2018 which tested the joint response by public authorities and industry to a simulated disruption.</p><p> </p><p>1 <a href="https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/-/media/boe/files/prudential-regulation/discussion-paper/2018/dp118.pdf?la=en&amp;hash=4238F3B14D839EBE6BEFBD6B5E5634FB95197D8A" target="_blank">https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/-/media/boe/files/prudential-regulation/discussion-paper/2018/dp118.pdf?la=en&amp;hash=4238F3B14D839EBE6BEFBD6B5E5634FB95197D8A</a></p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>​The British Government has been consistent and clear in public and in private that we wish to see a free, fair and pluralistic election in Bangladesh. I have repeatedly encouraged the Government of Bangladesh and opposition parties to engage in an effective dialogue to this end. Through our High Commission in Dhaka we have also been clear that the Election Commission should be allowed to continue its important work without interference. We have encouraged international observation of the election and the EU has sent an Election Expert Mission. Through Department for International Development funding, the UK is also supporting local observation of the general election. The Foreign Secretary raised his concerns regarding the next election in Bangladesh with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina when they met at the UN General Assembly in New York on 24 September. I made the case for a free, fair and participatory election in a meeting with the Bangladesh Information Minister,Tarana Halim, on 14 December.</p>
