To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, with reference to English UK's position paper Teaching the World: how the government can support our rebuilding strategy for UK ELT, published in May 2022, if she will make an assessment of the implications for her policies of the findings of that report.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) works very closely with English UK, who are members of the Education Sector Advisory Group that I co-chair with the Department for Education’s Skills Minister. DIT has provided support for English UK’s English with Confidence campaign, including through the production of promotional material and will be hosting around 50 overseas English language teaching (ELT) agents during an upcoming familiarisation visit. We will continue to ensure that the ELT sector’s recovery and ambition is captured in the Government’s International Education Strategy and will work through, with English UK, the implications of their recent position paper.
