Education & Training

Lessons from PISA for Korea.

Strong performers and successful reformers in education
Corporate Author:
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development

The story of Korean education over the past 50 years is one of remarkable growth and achievement. Korea is one of the top performing countries in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) survey and among those with the highest proportion of young people who have completed upper secondary and tertiary education. Korea is continuously exploring ways to improve its education system and has dramatically increased government investment in education over the last decade. Nevertheless, further reforms are needed to spur and sustain improvements. Rapid globalisation and modernisation are also posing new and demanding challenges to equip young people of today and tomorrow with skills relevant to the 21st century. The report Strong Performers and Successful Reformers in Education: Lessons from PISA for Korea aims at helping Korea to identify and address education policy challenges in an international perspective. To this end, it examines the Korean education system through the prism of PISA, considers recent policy developments and suggests specific policy options to foster improvements. The report also provides an in-depth analysis of the experience of other high-performing countries.

Food

Spirit drinks: industry guide to good hygiene practice.

Corporate Author:
Food Standards Agency

This Industry Guide replaces the spirit drinks coverage of a previous publication, The Guide to Good Hygiene Practice for the Beer, Wines and Spirits Drinks Industries, published in June 1995. Since the current EU and UK Hygiene Regulations build on previous requirements, most businesses should find that they already meet most of their obligations. It should be recognised, however, that it is a requirement for all food businesses to have permanent procedures in place to conduct hazard assessment and critical control points (HACCP) of their operations. Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 outlines the principles of HACCP. This Industry Guide is structured to lead businesses through the requirements of HACCP and on to specific aspects of the production of spirit drinks. This Industry Guide is to be used as a reference to clarify the legislation and assist the reader to manage the risks specific to their own business processes.

Better workplace pensions: further measures for savers.

Cm. 8840.
Corporate Author:
Department for Work and Pensions.

This Command Paper forms the Government's response to its consultations on minimum quality standards and its formal response to the OFT market report. It brings forward a package of proposals that will ensure that individuals are enrolled into schemes with low and fair charges, good governance and increased transparency. It describes the Government's plan to improve governance in Defined Contribution workplace schemes. This includes proposals for both contract and trust-based schemes, examining how administration standards might be improved and looking closely at the relationship between scheme size and good member outcomes. It also contains the Government's plans to create fair and appropriate charging structures in Defined Contribution workplace schemes - through a charge cap on default funds used in qualifying schemes and an end to inappropriate member-borne charging structures such as Active Member Discounts, consultancy charges and adviser commissions within qualifying schemes. Transparency will play a vital role in delivering these changes. For the first time providers and schemes will be required to produce line item disclosure of all charges in a standard format
