Greater Manchester Work and Skills Strategy 2016-2019 Consultation

In order to achieve this vision, we need an education, work and skills system which is responsive to the needs of GM’s employers and which gives our residents the skills they need for work and for life. Building on that vision and on local and national priorities, a work and skills strategy has been developed for Greater Manchester for the next three years which will drive our inclusive growth and reform agenda forward.

GMCA would welcome your feedback on the Strategy and Priorities and also ask that you share it with your colleagues and networks. 

The Strategy, together with an executive summary and consultation questionnaire can be found on the Skills and Employment page of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority website.  

The document sets out the current skills position in Greater Manchester, the inclusive growth and reform challenge facing the city-region, and the ten priorities which have been identified as key to delivering a work and skills system which meets the needs of Greater Manchester’s employers and residents now and in the future.

Please email any comments and completed questionnaires by Friday 7 October.
