The Barrow Cadbury Trust – the project funders – has published an Arooj research project, Faith Family and Crime. The project set out to investigate the extent to which a family member’s involvement with the criminal justice system affects Muslim families and their social and health needs. Over recent years, there has been little or no research undertaken to assess the extent and nature of these aspects or, indeed, to address the specific needs of Muslim families and the impact of the criminal justice system on their health and social needs.

Ok this week other items like The government’s top apprenticeships civil servant has defended the decision to allow more providers on to the provider register – after FE Week analysis revealed a third already on there aren’t delivering.
When asked by this newspaper why the Education and Skills Funding Agency didn’t focus on removing the inactive providers before making the register bigger, Keith Smith said it was “trying to ensure the system is working for businesses” – for which it needed a “high-quality responsive provider system that can respond to their needs and their demands”.
“Where in the system there are potential parts of the country or parts of different sectors where employers feel there isn’t a provider we want to ensure we do right by employers,” he told FE Week. Under the new, tougher rules for the reopened register of apprenticeship training providers, all providers will be asked to reapply, with the agency focusing first on those deemed “high risk” – including those that have had no starts.
As revealed by FE Week, the IfA has warned that there could be a £500m overspend on the £2bn apprenticeship budget this year.
This, their analysis shows, rises to a £1.5 billion overspend for 2020/21 when the entire £2bn budget would be used paying for apprentices that started in previous years, leaving nothing for new starts. Readers may find these predictions a surprise, even bizarre, in the context of a fall in starts and employers on average only using a small fraction of their levy pot. And in an interview with FE Week, the top civil servant responsible for apprentices said he was not forecasting the budget to be exceeded – not this year anyway.
But in truth, the way employers pay monthly for apprenticeships, it is more than possible that a slow start will rapidly grow out of control.
