Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 78 (19 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, as furlough ends, no community will be untouched by unemployment. It is vital, therefore, that a joined up, place-based employment, skills and careers system offers adults and young people the recovery they deserve by providing access to quality education and training opportunities. We know that all FE colleges and sixth-form colleges have been required to secure access to...

Education (Environment and Sustainable Citizenship) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (16 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, before beginning my focused comments, I was going to pick up on the points made by the noble Lord, Lord Hannan, but my noble friend Lord Griffiths has explained beautifully how the Welsh Labour Government’s curriculum introduction in September will have that light touch. Educators have been at the core of that change and one of the stated goals in the four areas of learning is for...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 72 (15 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, Amendment 74 probes the charging of fees in connection with entries on the list of relevant providers. The Bill would enable the Secretary of State to make regulations to provide for a list of post-16 education or training providers, including independent training providers. We have no argument with the principle of introducing legislative measures to protect the interests of...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 63 (15 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: It is another country.

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 59 (15 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the Minister for the further explanation. I will analyse it in greater detail when I read it in Hansard tomorrow. The point from the noble Baroness, Lady Garden, about regulation being a matter of concern is absolutely correct. Indeed, employers have always been involved in qualifications. I am afraid that I am unsure of the background of many of my fellow Peers, but I can assure...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 59 (15 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I am moving this amendment in the name of my noble friend Lord Watson and, with the scratchers from this group, it looks as if it is just Front-Bench contributions. If it is worth saying something twice, that is what I am going to do. The Bill currently gives the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education, a non-departmental public body directly accountable to Ministers,...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 27 (15 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Amendment 30 requires that the Secretary of State must publish LSIPs and distribute them to schools and all post-16 education providers. However, there is little point in having a plan if no one is aware of its contents. Yet, despite the requirements for providers to have regard to LSIPs, the Bill is silent on how LSIPs will be published or disseminated. I know that the Minister responded...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 8 (15 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I agree with my noble friend Lord Liddle that local authorities and devolved Administrations are best placed to deal with local skills planning. I reiterate to the Minister that, if a whole education system approach is not taken to local skills planning, the system will be disjointed and will not be efficient or the best use of public money. I welcome the Minister’s announcement of the...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 8 (15 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I move this amendment in the name of my noble friend Lord Watson of Invergowrie. This amendment sets out the complementary roles of schools, colleges and universities by joining up the wider education and skills system so that it better meets society’s needs and gives people the skills they need. Delivering this means ensuring that we develop the right balance of autonomy,...

Early Years Foundation Stage (Miscellaneous Amendments) and Childcare Fees (Amendment) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Regret (13 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: In this debate, we have learned that the reception baseline assessment is a short assessment taken in the first six weeks in which a child begins reception. As my noble friend Lord Watson stated at the outset, we are not against assessment. This debate refers to the Childcare Act 2006 and the Early Years Foundation Stage (Learning and Development Requirements) Order 2007, which underpin the...

Non-fatal Strangulation and Suffocation - Question ( 8 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, this amendment to the Domestic Abuse Bill was hard fought for by victims and by Members across all parties in both Houses. What steps are the Government taking to ensure that the relevant organisations are properly ready to implement the new offence of strangulation and suffocation? Have processes been put in place to ensure that training and guidance will be available before the...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (to Amendment 3) ( 6 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I have listened carefully to the many excellent contributions in this debate. Much has been said so I will self-edit as I speak, in much the same way as I used to five minutes before the bell rang at the end of the school day. It is extremely disappointing that the Bill fails to link the Government’s goals on decarbonisation in energy, transport and buildings, sustainable land...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 ( 6 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I draw attention to my interests as in the register. Amendment 17 seeks to ensure that LSIPs cannot place an unreasonable burden on providers. Although we aim to amend the Bill to ensure that LSIPs are produced in partnership with providers, as drafted, the Bill gives ERBs all the power and renders FE colleges passive recipients. The role of employer representative bodies will be...

Covid-19: Work-related Cases - Question ( 5 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, may I press the Minister a little further on her previous reply? The TUC report found that there was likely to have been significant underreporting in the number of work-related Covid deaths, arguing that it was just not credible that only 2.5% of working-age Covid deaths were down to occupational exposure. Does she believe that funding cuts of 46% to the HSE over the past decade,...

Military Personnel Overseas: Vaccinations - Question ( 1 Gor 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I listened carefully to the Minister’s reply to my noble friend Lord Coaker, but press her a little further on this area. I am sure she would agree that it is government’s first duty to our Armed Forces to ensure they are properly trained, equipped and protected when they are deployed in service. Was it therefore a mistake to follow the age- related criteria and not to fully vaccinate our...

Unidentified Flying Objects - Question (30 Meh 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: The recent report from the United States task force dedicated to investigating UFOs has neither confirmed nor rejected the idea that such sightings could indicate alien visits to earth. I believe that Cardiff Bay is the alleged location of the Torchwood Institute, set up to deal with incidents of extraterrestrials. Indeed, the Ianto Jones shrine forms part of the tourist trail at Mermaid...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (24 Meh 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many Universal Credit claimants are (1) black, (2) Asian, (3) other ethnic minority, (4) white, (5) male, and (6) female.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Kickstart Scheme (22 Meh 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: To ask Her Majesty's Government how much money in total they have paid to employers through a Kickstart Scheme grant.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Kickstart Scheme (22 Meh 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they contract any company (1) to run part of, or (2) to approve applications for, the Kickstart Scheme; if so, what are the names of those companies; what are their roles and responsibilities; and how much are the contracts worth.

Education: Recovery Package and Catch-up Programme - Question (21 Meh 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, this Wednesday is Thank a Teacher Day, an event established in 1998 by my noble friend Lord Puttnam to celebrate and recognise excellence in education. It is a chance for children and families to thank the inspirational staff who change lives through their hard work. All the evidence shows that if we want to make the most difference to children’s life chances and close the...
