Skills

Improving Education and Skills provision in our schools, colleges and universities so that more people gain the training and qualifications they need to succeed is a top priority for Staffordshire County Council. 

Staffordshire's workforce is the greatest asset there is for improving the lives of its people, so employees need to be given the skills, tools and confidence to do their jobs well and contribute to overall economic growth and increasing prosperity.

A good education and a high level of skills can help people achieve better outcomes and adapt to changes they may encounter in their everyday lives, but more particularly in the workplace. This is especially important in difficult economic times when the ability to adapt can be advantageous.

Improving the supply of skills that meet the needs of local businesses and nurturing the aspirations of residents to succeed in life can ultimately help create stronger communities in which residents can support themselves, their families and their communities.

This section considers priority areas including education, skills and careers.
