Brexit, the Government’s Industrial Strategy, Metro Mayors and further devolution provide a unique opportunity for the North to think differently and pull together behind a shared vision on how best to improve life chances, achieve social mobility and deliver growth.

The Northern Powerhouse Conference 2018, which takes place in Leeds on 2nd February, will launch the Northern Powerhouse Partnership’s Education and Skills Report and debate each stage of the education and skills journey from early years to active ageing.

The Northern Powerhouse Conference 2018 will bring together key players from across the North to collaborate and build consensus on how to bridge the productivity gap and deliver world-class education and job opportunities across the North.

Confirmed speakers include: Anne Longfield OBE, Children’s Commissioner; Sir Michael Wilshaw, former Chief Inspector of Schools and Head of Ofsted; Lord Jim O’Neill, NPP Board Member and former Commercial Secretary at HMT; Sir Gerry Berragan, CEO of Institute for Apprenticeships.
