Skills and Training
Skilling up local people to take on the jobs of the future.
“Ensuring that local people are equipped with the skills to take on the jobs of the future is vital, not only for our local economy, but also to improving the living standards of residents across our area. This means ensuring access to fantastic training opportunities, whether through a new technical college, more apprenticeship schemes or better higher education. Now is the time to ensure that the skills local people have meet the needs of businesses and job opportunities of the future. We need to see a step change in local skills and training provision.”
