The principal components are:
The development of an 'Achievement Campus' in Sauchie which will act, not only as a school, but as a 'smart centre' for family learning and skills development, utilising technology innovatively and creatively.
The development and delivery of an innovative learning system that builds on the attainment challenge and tackles the question: How could education across the region feel different in response to the specific issues and needs that are being identified locally and in the context of a rapidly changing job market?
Support to families to address poverty and exclusion from learning, employment and training opportunities and increase parenting skills. Key among this will be increasing child care provision in a way that is accessible, economically viable and sustainable.
Skills and employability will be key to ensuring we capitalise on the transformative opportunity of the City Region Deal. It will ensure that all people, regardless of age, ability, gender or life chances are equally able to gain meaningful skills and enter and progress to fair work.
