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.
