Nick Gibb, Member of Parliament for Bognor Regis & Littlehampton since 1997 and Minister for School Standards announces a new project:

Projects to improve education for children with additional needs

Nine projects across the country have been awarded a share of £4million to transform the education and outcomes of children taught in alternative provision.

Children taught in alternative provision are set to benefit from new projects to help them fulfil their potential, including work placements, careers advice and behaviour mentoring.

School Standards Minister Nick Gibb today (6 August) announced nine innovative schemes across the country to benefit from a £4million fund to develop new ways of improving alternative provision, to support children educated outside of mainstream or special schools and help them succeed later in life.

Evidence shows children educated in alternative provision are less likely to achieve good GCSE grades and are less likely to be in education, employment or training post-16. The projects announced today aim to tackle these injustices by supporting children back into mainstream education when it is suitable, encouraging parents and carers to be more involved in their child’s education, helping young people make good academic progress, and moving on to further education or employment.

Following a change of Prime Minister in England - from Theresa May to Boris Johnson - it is with some relief the Minister Nick Gibb retains his position despite considerable upheaval in England's Cabinet re-shuffle!

Thank you for the links to these very important speeches Debbie. I am certain that the emphasis Nick Gibb has placed on the importance of early SSP teaching has been of real benefit to young learners in England.
