star this property answer text <p>The House does not currently meet the public sector apprenticeship target but plans to meet or exceed it by March 2021. That would require around 55 apprentices per year based on current headcount. A new lead provider was appointed in September 2018 with a broader training offering. Work is also ongoing across the House to identify apprenticeship roles including upskilling of existing employees through an apprenticeship, and recruitment of new apprentices.<br></p><p>The House’s priority is to meet the 2.3% target by March 2021. However, if in a position to do so we will review this to see what more can be done, once the target has been met.<br></p><p>The number of apprenticeships offered has increased from 10 per year (2012–2018) to 12 in January 2019, with further enrolments planned over the coming months to reach around 25 to 30 apprentices by April 2019.<br></p><p>The range of apprenticeship programmes on offer has been expanded from two to fourteen Standards since September 2018 and this is expected to be expanded further during 2019.<br></p><p>A ‘Standard’ is the name of the apprenticeship training which replaced the older style ‘Frameworks’ training when the Apprenticeship Levy was introduced in May 2017.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to reforming alternative provision and published the plan ‘Creating opportunity for all: Our vision for alternative provision’ in March 2018. In August the projects funded by the Department’s £4 million alternative provision (AP) Innovation Fund began. The Department also commissioned external research into the AP market and AP practice which was published in October 2018. On 11 March 2019, the Department launched competitions for 2 new AP free schools, having assessed bids from local authorities who had worked in partnership with local schools in their area. The document ‘Creating opportunity for all’ can be found here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/713665/Creating_opportunity_for_all_-_AP_roadmap.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/713665/Creating_opportunity_for_all_-_AP_roadmap.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>As alternative provision is predominately funded through the high needs funding block of local authorities’ dedicated schools grant, the sector will benefit from my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State’s December announcement that an extra £250 million would be allocated for high needs funding. This was on top of the increases already promised, across the current and next financial year, bringing the total to £6.1 billion in 2018/19, and £6.3 billion in 2019/20.</p>
