One of the biggest challenges that cities face is to improve the skills profiles of their populations. Any improvement will have long term benefits for both individuals in these cities and the businesses that are located there. And by implication it is likely to have a positive impact on future economic growth. As current patterns of educational attainment and training provision appear to be compounding the skills challenges cities face, Joanna Averley will discuss the significance of skills as a key input for many businesses and explain why addressing the skills problem that cities face should be a central component to any strategy to improve long term growth.
