Professor Frank Peck of the University of Cumbria’s Centre for Regional Economic Development writes for in-Cumbria on the big issues of the day and the economic data behind them. This month, he focuses on the role of education in the development of the Cumbrian economy. There are few activities that provide a bridge between public, private and community sectors to the same extent as education. It is, in fact, interesting to note that any discussion of the future of the economy of Cumbria will almost inevitably come back to fundamental issues that include educational performance. Indeed, one of the first priorities for local enterprise partnerships was to analyse educational performance and produce Skills Plans for their area. LEP strategies clearly recognise that the education system is highly significant for the performance of all sectors across local economies. The Cumbria Skills Plan Evidence Base published in 2016 (York Consulting) contains useful analysis of educational performance at different levels.
