We need to ensure our area meets its potential and our ambitious people are equipped with the right skills now and in the future.

A growing economy depends on businesses having people with the right skills in the right jobs at the right time. We know that businesses that invest in training outperform those that do not. Likewise, people with better skills are more likely to be employed and to earn more.

Our Skills investment focuses on several areas: improving careers advice for young people by linking schools to businesses; supporting world class learning facilities to address labour market requirments; helping businesses access the training their staff need to remain competitive and, removing barriers to employment for those furthest from the job market
