We work with key regional organisations (including local education authorities, Learning and Skills Councils and the Regional Development Agency) to implement government education policies and initiatives to maximise the positive and lasting impact on the social and economic development of Yorkshire and the Humber.

Government Offices work with regional partners towards a number of education objectives, including raising regional levels of educational attainment in line with National Learning Targets and locally agreed targets. We also aim to widen participation in all levels of learning and education, contribute to regional social inclusion, ensure appropriate attendance and behaviour, improve the employability of individuals and improve the responsiveness of the regional education institutions. More information on the national picture

We have three main roles geared towards our education-related objectives:

  • to promote and facilitate partnership based activities in support of government policies 
  •  to administer and manage funds and Department for Education Skills initiatives
  • to inform development of national education policies and programmes
