Education, Skills and Employability

Our aim is to be a city region that provides inclusive growth and progression opportunities for all, enabling individuals and employers to reach their potential, drive productivity and contribute to our economic success.

We want to deliver a step change in our labour market that builds on the progress of recent years to deliver jobs and skills in every part of the City Region. This includes helping those furthest away from the labour market, increasing levels of technical training and ensuring that we have the type of businesses demanding the higher-level skills that will drive improvements in overall prosperity and opportunity.
