Education and Skills

GOYH works with a range of partners across the region to support the achievement of Department for Education and Skills targets relating to educational achievement and to deliver commitments in the Skills Strategy '21st Century Skills - Delivering Our Potential' and the reforms set out in the White Paper published in March 2005 'Skills: Getting on in business, getting on at work'.

Government Offices have an important role in helping the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) deliver its education strategy for the next five years and beyond. It focuses on giving children an excellent start in education, enabling young people to equip themselves with life and work skills, and encouraging adults to achieve their full potential through learning.
