DfE is partnering with the Local Government Association (LGA) to deliver a new peer review programme to spread best practice on improving early language outcomes.

The guidance covers:

Provision of accommodation for 16 and 17 year olds who may be homeless and/or require accommodation

This guidance has been issued jointly by the Secretary of State for Education and the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government. It revises the guidance that was issued in April 2010.

The guidance sets out the respective duties of children’s services and housing services to secure or provide accommodation for 16 and 17 year old children who are homeless or in need of accommodation.
