Learning Wow

We want to make sure that local people have access to world-class education and training facilities and provision. This will help them to develop the skills and aspirations they need to play an active part in society and contribute to the life of the city.

Compared to the national average York’s level of unemployment is low and educational achievement, at every age, is high. Although this is clearly a good thing, employers still experience difficulties finding staff with the right skills to fill vacancies. We want to make sure that local people have the right skills for the jobs available now and for those that will be available in the future. In order to continue raising educational achievement and equip people with the right skills, we want to improve the quality and choice of learning and training opportunities for all.

Learning City York is the partnership that will work with a number of different agencies and organisations to try to make sure that local people have the right skills they need. It will work alongside other partnerships to give our children the best start in life through high-quality early years services and childcare, access to high quality education and excellent diverse post-16 opportunities. Partners also aim to increase the achievement of all children and young people, and to raise the appropriate skills levels within the working age population.

The next date of the Learning City Partnership board is:
Tuesday 9 June, 2pm - 3.30pm at York College
