Speech: Justine Greening: Business and Education Summit: 6 July 2017

One that strengthens college-based education – and the technical routes that young people can take. And we need a cultural shift across our country. A mind-set change – to recognise that opportunity. To reassert that businesses have the ability to spread opportunity. And that this is a precious commodity. Let me take these in turn.

Speech: Justine Greening: We should not accept Britain as it has been: 12 July 2017

In some places it is a cycle that has spiralled down. And poor results in education lead to lower skills. Ill- equipped companies look to move out to go to places where there are skills, which then means fewer jobs, less opportunity, less innovation. A less attractive environment for any new business to think about coming in to.

Speech : Justine Greening: speech at DfE Skills Summit. 30 November 2017

Finally, we need every business to instil a culture of lifelong learning through their organisation, to invest in learning and development, from the people already at the top all the way down the organisation. We all know the changes the economy and technology will have. Which is why we must look at the national training scheme – and that starts with businesses. From people at the top right through the way down. It’s a lot isn’t it, what I’ve set out? And this is out of the comfort zone of many. I get that as much as anyone sat round the Cabinet table – and I know that has to change, and businesses have to step out of the comfort zone if we’re really going to plug the skills gap for good.

Time to move up a gear: the results of an insufficient summit | Post Summit Analysis EPC Post Summit Analysis 2 July 2018

The key question for EU institutions, governments and leaders aspiring to push things forward in Europe is whether they have the political capital, will, courage and clout to do so. The EU institutions are approaching the end of the current political cycle; the political crisis in Germany has weakened chancellor Merkel; French President Macron is very active and ready to push reforms at national and EU level but is facing the lowest levels of support since he assumed power in May 2017. Both Merkel and Macron know that they need each other and that EU reforms will not be possible unless they join forces – this is ultimately what led to the Meseberg Declaration. But valuable time was lost, and both are aware that levels of trust on either side of the Rhine are not very high. They also know that there is strong opposition to a further deepening of European cooperation even within their ranks and in some parts of the electorate. It remains to be seen how united they will be in the decisive months to come, but without them pushing in the same direction, nothing will move at EU level.

Mediterranean Migrants: Little help on offer for Italy  CEPS Commentary, 6 July 2017

Mediterranean Migrants: Little help on offer for Italy CEPS Commentary, 6 July 2017

What is left is to redouble efforts to seek new ways to bring down the number of people arriving to Italy. Returning people who are not eligible for asylum back to their home countries is central to reducing the number of people crossing the Mediterranean. Doing this effectively will in itself lessen the incentive to undertake the perilous journey to the EU, which subjects migrants to an increasing number of human right violations in Libya (UNHCR, 2017). This is irrespective of the stance one takes in the debate on the search and rescue (SAR) operations carried out close to the Libyan border, by both private and national actors.

Academy trust survey 2017. July 2017

Ultimately, the accountability for the education and financial performance of every MAT lies with the Trust board, but boards are able to delegate responsibilities to other levels in their structure. Figure 18 shows where responsibility predominantly lies and shows that the Trust Board predominantly handles financial compliance, senior appointments, legal compliance and risk management, whereas MATs delegate many operational factors to schools. It is interesting to note that despite around 4 out of 10 trusts having a

Last week I met Stephen Hetherington, founder of the One-Handed Musical Instrument Trust and heard about the excellent work the trust is doing to remove the barriers to music faced by physically disabled people. This includes a pilot, with the Birmingham music education hub and others, teaching children to play one handed recorders and specially adapted trumpets. I am delighted to see that Stephen is here today with colleagues from Birmingham City University and I urge you to find out more about their work and how it could help your pupils.

Evaluation of Pause, July 2017

It offers an intense programme of emotional, psychological, practical and behavioural support. Highly skilled Practitioners work with small caseloads of 6-8 women, to promote and sustain change. Each woman has an individual programme designed around their needs looking at the various elements of their system. Pause works with women in a radically different way, addressing everybody in their lives, including the fathers of their children, family members, partners and friends, as well as professionals within social services, housing, the NHS and the justice system. Pause also works at a strategic level to foster inter-agency collaboration, which is necessary to ensure that services make the adjustments required to meet women’s fundamental needs both during and after their interventions.

We firstly would like to mention the person who made the greatest contribution to the later study is Bally [6], his successor to Saussure, who was also interested in langue and parole. However, unlike Saussure [7], who studied langue but little interest in parale, Bally studied personal psychology, considered parole as a means of expressing feeling and emotional life of human. He introduced into his structuralism a new concept of expressiveness and laid the foundation for generative grammar.
