Ashfield’s Education and Skills Improvement Plan is now live!

Ashfield District Council has developed a new 10-year plan (2022-2031) which is the evidence base for local education and skills insights, priorities, success stories and initiatives, delivered by Ashfield’s Education and Skills Partnerships.

This plan comes at a time when the district is cautiously moving into recovery from the effects of a global pandemic. It offers a reflection on Ashfield’s education and skills journey to date and outlines the strategic direction of travel that will enable people, businesses, and communities in our district to build back, to aspire, thrive and prosper going forwards. 

Drawing on our skills and labour market strengths, challenges and ambitions, this plan aims to act as a springboard for future engagements, creative partnerships and conversations, where a diversity of voices from across the skills spectrum are heard, including employers, educators, learners and policy makers. It offers a wealth of insights and ideas for use by any individual or organisation with an interest in education and skills development in Ashfield.

Our Education and Skills Improvement Plan is now live and can be viewed here: https://www.ashfield.gov.uk/your-council/strategies-plans-policies/education-and-skills-improvement-plan

After reading the plan, if you have any ideas which will help shape our strategic direction, or if you feel you can add value to discussions within our Education and Skills Partnerships, then please contact: business.support@ashfield.gov.uk
