Our half-day summit with UKCES will look ahead at the policy priorities for cities to improve skills and employment.
In the wake of the general election, Centre for Cities and UKCES, with the support of Leeds City Council, are holding a City Skills Summit in Leeds on 2nd July. With the Chancellor’s restated commitment to a ‘Northern Powerhouse’ and conditional offer of greater devolution, including of skills policy to cities, this half-day summit will bring together local and national skills practitioners to look ahead at the policy priorities for cities to improve skills and employment figures, using the tools already at their disposal and those that they might gain.
The event marks the launch of an ongoing research collaboration between UKCES and Centre for Cities and will be an opportunity for participants to influence research priorities for the partnership over the next 12 months.
For more details on the summit, including how to register, please contact Simon Jeffrey on firstname.lastname@example.org.
