A new approach to education, training and skills

Ruth Lupton, Lorna Unwin

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report was commissioned to inform the Greater Manchester Independent Prosperity Review. Our brief was to consider what Greater Manchester (GM) should aim to change in education, training and skills and what the system might ideally be like, and to examine priorities for reform with the primary aim of seeking to reduce inequalities. We were also asked to consider what opportunities are or are not offered by devolution. The report is a ‘think-piece’. It draws on our knowledge of education, training and skills policy and workforce development in the UK and internationally, as well as our research in the GM context. It suggests how GM might build a stronger, fairer and more holistic approach in which more young people, adults and workplaces succeed, and fewer are left behind.
