Nadhim Zahawi – 2022 Comments on Levelling Up Premium

The comments made by Nadhim Zahawi, the Secretary of State for Education, on 13 May 2022.

The quality of pupils’ education in crucial subjects like maths and science should not be dependent on where they live, and teachers shouldn’t feel that they must leave their local area for a better paid job.

Our Levelling Up Premium will help give children and young people the best specialist teaching in maths, physics, chemistry and computing, while supporting jobs in low-income areas, helping to level up education for all and grow the economy.
