To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills on what timescale he will introduce good practice frameworks for teaching and learning providers. [126790]

Within our 'Success for All' strategy, we set up the Standards Unit in January 2003 to improve teaching standards in priority curriculum areas by developing good practice frameworks and associated teacher training and support. The Unit has developed innovative materials in four curriculum areas (science, construction, business studies and entry to employment), which are being trialled with 28 providers in June and July 2003 and piloted with over 100 providers from September 2003. We will also start research and development work on four further curriculum areas (health and social care, maths, land-based studies and information and communication technologies) from September 2003. All the frameworks will be disseminated widely once they have been evaluated.
