To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what progress his Department has made against its Action Plan; and if he will make a statement. (247266)

The departmental action plan focuses on the key improvements required in our culture and ways of working. It addresses the gaps identified through the Capability review process and other departmental reform. The Capability re-review undertaken in June 2008 confirmed the Department had made good progress in closing the capability gaps. The report of the re-review is published/publicly available and includes a response from the permanent secretary.
