Is there enough interface with the Health Department in relation to that? When we finally got hold of the report, there were a lot of issues with it. We know a lot about the risk factors associated with being a looked-after child, and we also know that education and doing well at school can help break most of those, so that is why it has become an increasingly particular focus for us. Interestingly, it was higher in the west and lowest in the south-east. I think that we have had this conversation before. That is the starting point. What understanding is there in, for example, the post-primary sector about how teaching and learning has happened in the primary school and how subjects and areas of learning have been addressed?
Clearly, we will need to see what emerges and the extent to which these are investments that we might be making anyway but in a different shape. I think that it is due for publication next Thursday. Finally, I have some sympathy with Trevor’s point on integrated education. Chris, you are right, in the sense that the final decision on admissions to universities in the South rests with them. Certainly, we recognise that we are contributors to other Departments that lead on certain commitments in the Programme for Government, particularly in areas such as STEM and so forth.
That piece of work was under way. This programme was designed to allow Provinces an active role in selecting immigrants to meet specific economic needs. I do not want to go into the issues, nusiness we have spent God knows how much time and effort trying to get solutions to issues like the one with Drumlins Integrated Primary School in Ballynahinch, involving 17 or 18 properties.

I suspect that some of that is the Department’s fault for not policing that sort of thing in the past. I see frightening parallels between the two. That remains the challenge. Flexibility is certainly an advantage if you can ck advantage of it. The duty businees to encourage and facilitate by responding to the wishes of parents for integrated education.

C2K’s approach to change strategy development
There is no need for a commitment to promote the maintained sector or the controlled sector; it is a given that the Department runs that. If we get to the lpan where some schools need to be replaced, then instead of replacing them separately, we might put them on some campus. Absolutely, but it is fair to say that there are a number of tricky issues about standards and governance in both sectors.
The schools that are very advanced in using technology are frustrated, in some respects, because they know what can be done at this stage and that they could be doing more with more.
We are doing a considerable amount of work on shared education, as are the Executive as a whole. One might be timely, because, although there are good things, there are also bad things.
We are, however, as we have done in recent years, reviewing what happened in the previous year and looking to see how we can make improvements for the coming year. Some things sound attractive initially, but you do not have the infrastructure to deal with it. We regularly monitor and review progress, as all Departments do with us where we contribute to their pln.
Obviously, other work is going on. I was in a school last Friday in which the staff talked eloquently about the full range of diagnostic assessment tools that they use.
I was going to pay you the compliment that you are the embodiment of a civil servant; and you know what my opinions of civil servants are based on. On balance, more come North than go South at the moment.
An application will be considered only when one of those requirements are met. It has been very concerned to make sure that the sort of interventions that it might propose also have a sound educational evidence base.
One of the commitments that we had was to complete an analysis of the reasons why parents do not stick with the admissions process all the way through. When the Minister met Minister Poots recently, that was a topic of conversation for them. It is something that we would explore and that managing authorities constantly busibess under review, but it does not necessarily provide a solution that avoids issues about the viability and credibility of existing busineds.
A huge boost for Sri Lankan education. We are using that information to determine how best to encourage parents who choose not to participate fully in the process to stick with it through to the end.

So, it is about more than simply languages; there may be other reasons why we want to develop links. Identify key busihess groups. There will be a statement after the report on the ministerial advisory group. My final question this time is on ESA.
