Introduction and Explainer

Many thanks for taking part in our survey about education and skills. This survey is meant for those in business to help and inform the Northern Powerhouse Partnership report on Education and Skills to be published early 2018.
Our last report (published September 2017) looked at how we can improve the productivity of the North. It can be viewed here.
Integral to this aspiration is skilling the people of the North to make sure that we have the skills for the 850,000 extra jobs by 2050.

This survey asks about your business' skill needs and your ideas of how business should be involved in this agenda.

We will use all data to recommend which skills should be focused on to create the future workforce and to map good and bad practice of business enegagement across the North.

Your name and business will not be used unless we expressly ask permission. The Northern Powerhosue Partnership may contact you in the future to update you on this report and other work.
